Spending a week at Australian National University with other ceramics students and learning from Greg Daly http://www.gregdaly.com.au/home.html and Janet De Boos http://www.sabbiagallery.com/artists_biography.php?pname=deb1 was the highlight of last week. Both Greg and Janet were inspiring and I am looking forward to the rest of the semester with a trip to China as part of my studies.

and very sadly the ceramic community has suffered a huge loss with the death of Janet Mansfield. If you wish to post a message of condolence please visit this page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Vale-Janet-Mansfield/503514956366622
I met Janet only once – It was at Gulgong where she graciously let us visit her property during the last Gulgong ceramic conference. An amazing women, Janet worked tirelessly to promote Australian Ceramics. I own and treasure one of the many ceramic pieces she made. I hope she is now organising all the angels with some clay and they are fluttering their wings with anticipation of a new ceramic exhibition in heaven. Our ceramic community will miss you Janet. RIP
Wonderful teachers by the sound of it. A lovely comment about Janet Mansfield – what a great legacy she left for Australian clay workers.
Thanks Anna Happy clay days xxx

Studying a Masters in Visual Arts Elaine by Distance and I am loving it. Happy claying to you Deb
Wow, lucky you! I’m familiar with the work of Janet De Boos…..love it!
I would love to do that ANU distance course seriously thinking about it for 2014.
I hope it will still be going.
