I was absolutely thrilled on Friday to be featured as one of the four ceramicists you need to know about on the Dailylife website. Thank you Amy Richardson for putting it all together!

I like to do things slow. By that I mean I like to take the time and energy to get things the best that I can in a gentle way. There are many hats that I put on when I go to work in my studio each day.
Somedays I am the cheer leader, other days I am the hard yakka get down and dirty doer, there are the times I am the mad scientist- making concoctions- but one of my favourite hats is the environmentalist. This one consists of taking my studio waste and making it into something of worth. I have made great new products from elements that I previously saw as a waste product. This is something I am always striving to get better at. As nearly all my products are made in my studio I have amazing control about where and how I use “waste materials”. One of my favourite things to do is to shred my waste paper (there is not much of it!) and turn it into soil by composting, which in the end helps to feed my veggies which ultimately feeds my family and friends. It is pretty nifty. When things get a little tough in the studio I like to pop out into my garden and turn the compost, it really helps re-boot my creativity!
I would love to hear from you, give me your tips!
What things re-boot your creativity?
How are you actively being an environmentalist in your house?
Running super late with telling you all about my new things!
But I have some, and only a few of them! They are hot off the press and finally out of my head and into the world! I am a bit excited about them.
Tonight they are going to be at Finders Keepers! Launched. So if you come down and they are all gone feel free to order one. If you are looking for me and cannot find me at the Finders Keepers, know that I am right down the back second row forward on the right... visualise that. Yeah they put me with the naughty kids, not surprising really!
Here is a sneak peak.
Here is some ring bling- because you know it is kind of neat.
Some small cups made for your green tea drinking.
Someone once said something at sometime about silver lining and clouds, but honey, my clouds are all silver.
I made something for the cats, because I love them...
I have whipped up some small bags, so if you buy my ceramics you will get one, they come in pink or blue. They will also be for sale individually if you simply have to have more than one! Because to be honest I am having a hard time parting with them myself.
Not long to go until I am The Finders Keepers Melbourne! I am not doing many markets this year- so come and catch me while you can!
I am in full prep mode here in the studio. These images were taken last night where I was painting on tonnes of small coloured dots on my sweet confetti range of ceramics, then stacking them into my kiln in the dark spooky shed. I am racing to get enough stock together! Oh, the beauty of hand made!
