Canberra was fantastic last week. At the Australian National University I was immersed in clay, learning so much from Janet De Boos and Greg Daly. I cant recommend the ANU ceramics course highly enough. I made some new ceramic friends and learnt a few new throwing techniques as well.
While I was in Canberra I did some family tree research and I want to sincerely thank the soldier who placed a poppy on the wall of remembrance for one of my relatives. The Australian War Memorial has so much to see. Discovery and Interaction, exhibits and a research area – not to mention some great sculptures. The memorial dome and the eternal flame are places to sit awhile and remember those who gave their lives.
and then it was home to my studio to contemplate how lucky I am to be able to play with clay and to check out other ceramicists like my friends at Mud Colony – check them out – http://mudcolony.blogspot.com.au/
Happy clays days
