After an awesome market last night I am feeling really excited about the exhibitions in Feb. Yep, that's right! 2.
More about that on the exhibitions and markets page.

So today I visited Potters Market then got stuck into the studio. So organised! No excuses now.

Christmas plum jam

This Christmas friends and neighbours will be getting my homemade plum jam to enjoy on hot buttered toast. I'll be taking a jar down south to eat on bread from Tas's bakery and enjoy with the family. Heaven!

Aussie felties for my sister

Here are two little cuties for my sister to give her friend who is moving home to the US.

November Pots

Tis the season to be.... very busy!

I was in the Jacaranda Market in Applecross on Saturday. A bit disappointing in terms of sales but great networking and I received some fantastic feedback on my pots. I have been very busy this past month preparing for Jacaranda as well as PSP Christmas exhibition and William St after dark that my friend Louise is in.

Here are some of my new pots:

Some little condiment pots 

 Breakfast set

 Botanical beakers
 New handle mugs
 Breakfast bowls


Hulbert St Success

Phew! What a huge weekend! This year's Hulbert St Fiesta was a tremendous success. 2 full days of huge crowds, happy people and good sales. We met some wonderful people, got great feedback and I got to spend a full day with my besty! Luxury.

Here are some sbefore snaps of some of my pots:

The photos above were taken before I worked out my new camera! They are actually exactly the same gorgeous white procelain as the crisp ones below but I had different lighting when I took the photos.

There are a few different prints. It was so interesting to hear people's different preferences. The ones I absolutely love and thought would sell the fastest were sometimes different to what people naturally gravitated towards!
Here are some shots of the market and our stall:

I had lots of people ask where I sell and where I would be next. Nat and I have just decided to do the Jacaranda Festical in Applecross in November. i will upload my market and exhibition page shortly.

New prints for pots

I have been developing some new screen prints for my pots ready for the Hubert St Fiesta by photographing leaves and flowers found in the school garden and my own. These are just test pots for a new midfire glaze that I have mixed and since I have never tried mid fire glaze and there is an excellent chance they won't work out at all, I have photographed them now to remember how nice the prints look.

Felties for my nephews

These guys were made for my nephews Archer and Thomas. Two of my favorite shapes.


This bowl was a demo pot for my new potters last term and it was one of those times when I wasn't expecting much from it and it turned out really well. This lesson is confirmed for me time and time again: Don't get too invested! These gorgeous cherries were on spesh yesterday and they taste as wonderful as they look.

Printed pots from last batch

I found a picture from my last batch of pots that has some of my little jugs included. Excuse the very less than professional photo it was taken to show the curators how to display the pots.

Recently I have been taking photos of local plants and leaves and creating riso and photographic silk screen prints from the photos. My plan was to do a load of throwing this weekend but I have allowed my oft hidden inner domestic goddess to shine through and cleaned the studio instead! Better get onto it soon, only 7 weeks until the Sustainability Fiesta.

Felty rattles

Here is my new style felty for littlies. It has a rattle inside and grab-able legs for babies to hold and shake. It also has a squeaker in the ear. Probably not so great for friends with dogs! (sorry Kym, you won't be getting the squeaker version).

New style ceramics

Earlier this year I exhibited in the Art Ed Associations First Love Exhibition and sold some of my new style pots. I have been developing my skills in print on clay and working on some really functional shapes. The most popular are my little jugs, happily for me they all sold; sadly, I didn't get many (any?) photos. But thanks to my new Giffin Grip I will be making more for the next market that I will be in.

Nope, sadly no little jugs pics but here are some serving bowls, butter dishes and beakers.

New Felty Love

Babies, babies, babies!

It has happened. All my friends (and a few of my sisters) are producing delightful and gorgeous bundles of joy. I am a bit jealous and super clucky but very excited for them and also pleased that I have the chance to get felting again! Here are a few of my recent creations. If you would liek to buy one, I have started an Etsy site but not quite got it up and online yet. Sorry! But please email me and I will be very happy to discuss shapes and ideas and give you an idea of price.
