I had a beautiful kiln opening yesterday.   The colours were amazing and it never ceases to surprise me when I open the kiln door and look in with trepidation to see if everything has exploded or cracked or melted or dropped or fused or whatever!! and then it’s all perfect and you put your hands together in a prayer mode and lift your eyes to the sky and thank the kiln gods who have blessed you once again!  IMG_1760

It’s been a very busy time at Tracie Anderson Ceramics!  I have opened a new exhibition with the incredible Sharon Hinchliffe at the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery which runs until the 25/02/18 Whew!!! and if that wasn’t enough I was accepted into the annual South-West Survey 2018, so am madly finishing my piece for that and if THAT’S not enough, trying to keep my little studio/gallery in Busselton up to date, ship shape & have lots to look at!

This is just a titbit of the art that is at the exhibition and below I have included some of Sharons paintings as well.  It has been a fun & satisfying collaboration and I hope we have a successful run at Bunbury Regional Art Gallery.

Well I want to know where the year has gone?  Who the hell stole it as I barely remember seeing much of it it spun past so fast!!!   A lot has happened to me this year, some good, some bad and some downright ugly!  but I look back with fondness on the good as I shifted to my beautiful studio/gallery in Busselton Western Australia.  What a delight it has been to work in this space and to have people come to see my art and give me such positive feedback.  Thankyou to those people (you know who you are!)   The artists life in the workshop is quite isolated so it has been a revelation to have a gallery & to have people to talk to about my passion.  Of course now we have another year to greet & I’m just hoping I can get into an organised mode early on so I don’t get to the other end and end up saying the same things.  I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas filled with peace & love & wellbeing and a New Year that brings joy and prosperity to all.  See you in January 2018…….IMG_0810IMG_0990IMG_1179

Hi everyone!     I thought I’d better make the effort to update my blog.  Sorry but I have been so busy making & doing! that I sometimes neglect my social media commitments!!!  As most of you guys know its hard to keep up with website, instagram, FB & blog!!  I’m just hoping that they don’t come up with anything else otherwise I will really be in trouble!  As I’ve told you before I have the studio at the Artgeo complex in Busselton Western Australia, I’ve been busy doing the chrissy things like tree decos & signs & little trees etc..   You can check out my artwork on either FB or instagram under #tracieandersonceramics  Hoping everyone has a safe & happy Christmas and gives & receives lots of peace & love.    See you all in the New Year….

Finally able to sit and quickly fill you in on whats going on in Busselton, Western Australia.  I have now got the posters out for my exhibition yay!!!  Its being held in the old courthouse gallery at Artgeo Cultural Complex in Busselton.  I’m still in the process of finishing some of the pieces EEK!  But I’m sure I will be ready in time (famous last words!)  Its a bit of a mixture of art combining wall pieces as well as sculptural art. So lots going on down here.

If your in the area don’t forget to call in as its running for two weeks and will open your mind to upcycling and what we find on our beaches.

Hi All,  Just wanted to give you a quick view of the studio/workshop & also of the gorgeous foreshore down here in Busselton.    There has been a steady flow of people coming into have a browse and a chat!!  I enjoy talking to them & showing how I do things in my workshop.  It’s amazing how little people know about the process of claywork and firing/glazing etc.  I think I must take it all for granted and so its been nice to explain the process for them.  I intend to do some workshops after Christmas, so people that are interested will become familiar with clay and what you can do with it.  The possibilities are endless and for me I try not to drift off onto different paths as there are so many that you can follow!!!!  I have always been drawn to the coast and because I use found objects in my work I am happy to keep to a coastal theme and follow where that leads me.

Fantastic news!!  I have finally opened a workshop/gallery space of my very own in sunny Busselton, Western Australia.  It has been a long time coming but I am very happy with change and am very happy with the space that I’m working in.  It has a good vibe and originally was the stables for the local lock-up!!  I feel quite content here maybe because the horses have left a good spirit from the 1800’s but anyway so far all I have had is positive feedback from people coming to say Hello and I’ve been lucky enough to sell a few pieces as well which makes it a bonus.  I have decided to change my logo but am still only doing coastal themed art work.  (can’t change that!!)

So if you find yourself in the Busselton area don’t forget to look me up and say Hello.
