Happy Happy 2013 Clay Days everyone

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.
