I’m afraid little has been done in my workshop lately, but that is about to change!!! I now have more time in my life to devote to my ceramics and am very pleased to be getting back to work. I have missed it dearly, and to begin I am having a huge clean out of the studio as I need more room for drying and for finished pieces to stand before going to the galleries. I need an area for storage, so I am going to have to be ruthless in my clean out.
I am still producing a small amount but I can’t go forward until I clean out the workshop as it’s become like an albatross around my neck.
So here’s a picture of the latest offering……

I went to an interesting exhibition at Bunbury Regional Art Gallery recently and checked out Glen Skien’s work. I really liked what he uses for his artwork, mostly the metal wall prints and as you can see from the photos his envelopes were great as well, some from metal some from paper very interesting concept and worth a look, this is only a sample of his work and I was impressed with this exhibition, so if your in the area call in and check it out PLUS I have some pieces in the glass gallery near reception which you might like to take a look at!!!!

Much cooler today so I was able to get into the workshop and get some work done. Unfortunately I can a hardly move in there so it looks like a good throw out is needed whether I want to or not. I started some jewellery making as well so that is taking up the whole work bench so I’m using the wedging table to finish the boats and now that’s covered as well and my drying shelf has all the unfinished boats so there’s no room for any green pieces. Oh woe is me!!!!!! I hate using my limited time for a spring clean but I can’t function with the mess and as they say a cluttered room means a cluttered brain or something like that, and I want an uncluttered brain so I can generate fresh ideas. Jobs on…….

First day back in the workshop!! I must admit my studio is a absolute pigsty but I can’t work up the energy (or time) to give it a good clean. It’s a full day’s work so it will have to wait. So doing any wedging or rolling is out of the question but I have been able to get a few bits & pieces finished and I’m waiting for a few mounts to dry after painting. Here’s a taste…..
