'ikenbana study 1' 🌿🌼
My first attempt at this design. I was so obsessed with getting the piece out of my head and into the kiln that I wasn't so worried about the copious amount of building imperfections that are now totally bugging me! πŸ˜… Will try the design again soon using some of the techniques that has been kind enough to share πŸ™πŸ»

'slinking silently in the suburbs'.
In the middle of the suburbs, in inner Melbourne, I felt eyes on me from across the creek, and discovered a fox staring back at me.

'black white... and red'
Trying out midfire range. I was worried that the piece may crack given I was using 2 different types of clay (white midfire and black midfire), but thankfully it's turned out ok πŸ˜‰ Also, I'm loving NPS's midfire glaze!

I'd like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people and all traditional custodians of the Lands on which we are blessed to live, and their connections to land, sea and sky. I pay my deep respect to Elders, past and present, and the young community members emerging as proud leaders.

I acknowledge the Wakka Wakka people, the traditional custodians of the land on which these photos were taken.

As I sat quietly lamenting the lack of dragonflies to photograph, I looked across the water to see this gorgeous red fox staring back at me. Eventually we both went on our way, but a short time later, I again looked across the creek to see my friend had followed me. What is surprising is that this was in the middle of the day in inner Melbourne 🦊

My 2022 calendar is now available for pre-order 🌼

Because I only use photos that I've taken in the previous year for my calendars, I didn't think that I'd actually be able to pull one together this year given that we've been in lockdown for most of it 😏 But thankfully, since we've been allowed out and about, the flowers have been in full bloom πŸ™Œ so this year's theme is 'flowers, floral, blooms & blossoms'🌷

Given the delivery delays that seem to be happening all over the country, orders close Sunday 28th November.

$22.95 plus postage. Shoot me a DM if you'd like to place an order! πŸ’—

'peacock' 🦚

Sooo excited to finally be able to collect my pieces that I had fired before lockdown (and drop off a new load for firing)!!! Pretty chuffed with the results of my experimentation with adding colour to the clay itself (rather than painting with a coloured glaze).

Thank you Northcote Pottery Supplies for taking such good care of my work! πŸ€—
