Open studio in November

VERY excited to be in the 2020 Australian Ceramics Open Studios Sat/Sun 21/22 November. My lovely studio will be (hopefully) clean and tidy and pots priced and displayed ready for sale. There will be the traditional sales table of seconds and old stock as well as fresh new work hot from the kiln. I’ll be offering discounts for my wonderful students and repeat customers so come along, talk clay, and bring some spending money #nearlyxmas

I will be giving throwing demonstrations all weekend so bring your children and friends to see how pottery is made on the wheel. See you next month!

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
