I love this time of the year with lots of markets, which means lots of new people to meet and value customers to see. If you’re in the city any of these dates do call at the BrisStyle Markets, the home of the best artists/crafts market in Australia and it’s right on your door step.
I can’t believe we are in the last third of June. With the colder weather, pots are taking that little longer to dry, I’m started this week putting boiled water from the jug in my throwing water (trying to stop … Continue reading →
Well, the April market was great, I met lots of new friends (like the lovely Madonna) and had a visit from lots of lovely customers. A big thank you to everyone who dropped by.
Here’s a photo from the day….(sorry it’s a bit blurry)
It was wonderful to have so many visitors up for a chat and enquiring about how the work is made and decorated. I could talk about clay all day…just ask my family (occassionaly their eyes do start to glaze over).
They do however, love using the bowls and plates I’ve made for them and these are the first to be used at meals. I can normally tell who’s had breakfast by which bowls are left on the bench.
This past week has been very busy finishing of some glazing/decorating and running a gloss firing, I had to rearrange the extension part of the studio as Hubby’s trying to finish the last bit of work – the cornice!
Friday I packed for Saturday’s Brisstyle’s City Hall Market and Saturday was spent in at City Hall. An early start, everything was going well until my son kindly went for coffee for me and I ended up spilling it all over me with my cloth handbag taking the brunt of it. Luckily I wasn’t wearing white (which I had planned too!). It was dark denim jeans with a dark floral top, I don’t think too many people would have noticed.
Sunday was spent unpacking.
Well….I better get on, Í’m doing some alterations to my Etsy shop and then it’s down to the studio for some new pieces….Have a wonderful day wherever you are….my family’s on school holidays so I’ve got everything ready to make some lovely potato and leek soup for lunch.
Personally, I love mushrooms (cooked not raw) on toast, maybe with some bacon, on a steak and definitely in a stir-fry or in a stroganoff…..much to the displeasure of one of my children (who shall remain nameless).
Which leads me to some small pieces I made before last Saturday’s market….Mushrooms.
This little mushroom was just about to be clear glazed and put back into the kiln. I didn’t get a chance to take some photos before the market (which I intended to do) and now don’t have any left to show you.
I hoping to get some more made tomorrow which should be ready for the December markets and a couple for me…..as I love the texture of them.
BrisStyle markets are the home of handmade in Brisbane, they truely showcase the best and in style and there’s no entry fee it’s FREE. So come along and enjoy the atmosphere, do some shopping and drop into either the Single Inn or Groove Train for a cuppa and chat with your friends.
Hope to see you there,
P.S I will be drawing the teacup on Thursday. I’m busy decorating and glazing so I will have some beautiful new pieces for Saturdays Market.
