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

4 days to go!

bags are packed, last firing hot in the kiln ready to be unpacked… teapots galore! Finders Keepers is a beautiful curated Australian designer market. I am stoked to have a stall (G07) again this year. I’ll be situated near the south east entrance, near the food vendors – very handy.

I loved the challenge of making a whole new range of teapots and tea sets for the Finders Keepers Design Market and now it is here – 9-11 November, Brisbane Showgrounds. Now it’s your turn! Come visit and indulge yourself, family or friend with a handmade gift that will hopefully bring joy for years to come.

Here is a taster of the teapots that will be for sale and check my shop for more you can purchase online. You can also purchase small yunomi cup sets to match.

i’m in love

TEAPOTS are a challenge and a joy to create, I feel honoured to be part of the November Finders Keepers design market in Brisbane with a stall of my handmade teapots and I’m in a frenzy of making. Thought I’d share part of the process…

teapot making

teapots are made in separate parts – body, spout, lid and handle – and put together once the clay has firmed up a little to a ‘leather hard’ state. Once constructed they need to dry slowly to avoid cracking of the individual components and then they are bisque fired, glazed and fired again.

Opening the kiln at the end of this quite long process is a huge reason I love pottery,  it’s like opening a treasure chest – every time!
