winter update

the boots, scarves and jumpers are out and it’s a lovely time to visit Tamborine Mountain: be invigorated by the fresh mountain air and spoil yourself to a hot toddy at one of our excellent cafes and restaurants.

I’m thrilled to say the Iso Tea-Time of the Soul exhibition at Under The Greenwood Tree has been extended so there is one more week to see this show of steampunk inspired ceramics, you can ask Janene for a copy of the catalogue

potting in iso

what strange times we are in, hope you are all taking the time to do a bit of self healing, introspection and whole lot of creativity and catching up on all that domestic stuff we never usually get around to.

I am enjoying the guilty pleasure of being super focused on the clay and have created some pretty special steampunk teapots and tea-related items that will (hopefully) be in a solo exhibition on Tamborine Mountain late June at the delightful and intimate Under the Greenwood Tree Bookshop and Art Gallery…more info coming

hand building happiness

making hand built teapots for newbies was a challenge but they were certainly up to the task, some fantastic works emerged and we can’t wait to fire and glaze them.

if you are interested in doing a workshop at PJ Pottery Studio on Mt Tamborine, send me an email hello@pjpottery.com or subscribe to my blog for all news and updates.

did I say the last market?

Ah well! This is definitely the last market before Christmas! And for 2019…I think….

This Sunday 6 December Tamborine Mountain Country Market, (Check out the market’s FB page for more info) PJ Pottery will have a stall with loads of Christmas specials and a summer feature of the popular pastel range including the new limited edition range of translucent porcelain jewellery.

And sharing the Christmas love a bit further, PJ Pottery will give 10% of all cash sales to the Red Cross Drought Appeal
