Oh My Goddess – Its 2013 already – Happy New Year everyone
And its going to be a big one –
New Years Resolutions aren’t really my thing – I will be just continuing my ceramic journey into lustres, sculptures with environmental statements, volunteering at Tweed Art Gallery and happily contributing as a member of Revolutionary Ceramicos, Gold Coast Potters Association and Byron Shire’s PAN Artists network. PAN artists have an exhibition planned in Ballina in May so I will be looking forward to taking part in that exhibition as well as a few other exhibitions through the year.
I am back at Australian National University doing my Masters of Visual Arts and as part of that I will be spending a couple of weeks in Jingdezhen Sculpture Factory, China. SO stay tuned later this year when I will be sharing some new information and pictures of my learnings in China.
And I have added one new task to my list for 2013. I have created a Gratitude Jar and it is quickly filling up every day with things I have to be grateful for.
I have so much to be grateful for – good family, friends and the ability to pursue my love of ceramics are just a few and there are little things every day that fill up my world. SO with my 2013 attitude gratitude – I should get to the getting –
Today I was at Tweed Regional Art Gallery helping stuff those envelopes full of fantastic news about whats happening at the gallery. So much is coming up and just a reminder about this week : Friday 18 January Ken Done “Sea Gardens” and Erica Gray “Rubber Gloves, Sharp Teeth and Other Pointy Bits” open.
