I think I need a big one of these for the wall of my studio!  There’s so many of these and they all capture something perfect.

The studio is almost up and running again after the cornicing has been completed Wednesday. A new purple feature is being added and hopefully I can unveil it to you by Monday.

Have a Wonderful Easter, take care if your travelling and best wishes from me.

 

Two Create Aratula…..

This beautiful Boutique retail outlet now stocks some of my work. The lovely Tanya and Angela own and operate the store and have it set up beautifully. I was delighted when they approached me to be part of their artistic community.

There’s plenty of gorgeous gifts to tempt the most discerning buyer of handmade, together with gifts for everyone in the family. I picked up a stunning gift for my daughter’s birthday (she doesn’t read my blog, so it’s still a secret…shh).

Located on the scenic Cunningham Highway at Aratula (it took me about 90 minutes from the northside of Brisbane) also you should call at the local antique & second hand ware stores and finished the trip with lunch at one of the very popular cafes. 

The store isn’t open on Wednesdays.

 

 

Home ….

The blog has been a little quiet lately and I am sorry, I’ve had my head down working hard, testing, mixing new colours for the work.

The new series is based on my notion of ‘Home’. I think my favourite saying is “Home is where the heart is” a quote attributed to Pliny the Elder (a Roman Author). Our homes are personal spaces and we can be very selective about whom and what shares our personal space. For me I would love a Queenslander on an acre and the must have rustic old timber barn to use a studio.

Here’s where it gets sticky ….. our homes are personal and we can choose what and how the inside looks, unfortunately circumstances and life in general means that the outside generally doesn’t truely reflect who we are. So, I feel you can’t always judge a book by it’s cover or a home by it’s outside. People make the most of their opportunities and their Homes and these new pieces are a tribute to the places we call Home.

The varied homes I have chosen to depict on the new pieces reflects this and some of the quirkiness our homes can have.

Little House

My next market is tomorrow inside City Hall 9am till 3pm, and I need to get packing! I will have the first pieces fresh from kiln at the BrisStyle Market tomorrow. Hope to see you there. I will post some further photos as the series develops.

City Hall Sat 8 February….

I’ve just kicked off a gloss firing that will be ready for this Saturday’s 1st market of the year. I’m really looking forward to it as City Hall is such a beautiful setting for the market. Stunning architecture with ceilings that go on forever, old world charm with the best handmade market in Australia.
