What a wonderful week

While my hands haven’t been covered in mud this week – I have been accepted into Uni to learn some more about clay, ceramics and art.

Had a beautiful lunch with fellow Revolutionary Ceramicos members Cass and Clare and was very lucky to receive one of Cass’s puppies as a Christmas gift. Woot woot

Bluey - by Cassandra Purdon

Merry Christmas from Bluey -

My Christmas tree is up and with carols resounding in the background, lights tinkling and a tipple of the cheery stuff I had the pleasure of remembering past trips, friends and family as I put the Christmas ornaments around the tree.

This years additions were six beautiful crosses from Hillgrove House in Ireland http://homepage.eircom.net/~hillgroveporcelain/index.html – beautiful porcelain trinkets and a wonderful big red heart from Lyn Gold Coast Potters www.goldcoastpotters.com and a lovely white heart rememberance of the people of Japan that went through the earthquake earlier this year. I was in Japan when my father died and we had to return to Australia – a day later the earthquake hit Japan and my heart goes out to the poeple who are still coping with the after effects.

On a ceramic note – If you are lucky enough to be able to get to Manly -Check out

    Hi Debby I was lucky enough to visit Belleek Pottery last year – did the studio tour and pondered for ages in the shop before purchasing a little souvenir teapot. The bodies are mostly slipcast except for the baskets which are still completely handbuilt as are the flowers. The shamrocks are all painted on by hand with china paint enamels and then refired along with the decal logo on the base. The women making the flowers were amazing to watch!
    Happy clay days to you too
