New Website

Well, it's all happening at the Eucalypt Homewares studio. My new website has just been launched. Please come and have a look!

The weather in Perth WA is horrible and HOT. Not the nicest of working conditions for a ceramics studio. Some how or other I am grinning and bearing the steamy studio and getting lots of work done.
Come and visit me at the Perth Upmarket. Sunday 20 March...

Porcelain Brooches

It is my littlest's 3rd birthday soon. I thought I'd make some badges to put in the lolly bags at her party. She is having a Teddy Bear's Picnic theme - so time for a new badge design!

Here's a sneak at the stamp I made. Don't worry I have made extras for you to buy at the next Perth Upmarket.

Talking of sneaks... here is one of inside my kiln I just opened.
You too could have your child's hand immortalised in clay :) They make lovely Mother's day gifts too. Just send me an email to book an appointment.

Morning Work

There is so much to be done in my studio with orders to fill and Perth Upmarket looming. Perth is hot and very dry - no rain for ages. My studio is not the most pleasant place to be come midday. However, early in the morning it is lovely.

Exciting news... my website is due to be finished ahead of schedule and should be live 25th February.

Clay Classes start with a splash (of plaster)

It is the start of week two of clay classes for term one. I am running three classes this term. Two slip casting classes and one "advanced" slip casting class.

I had a number of people who had attended two slip casting classes of mine in the past. I thought they might like to up the anti a bit and make a bigger piece using the paper pulp casting method.
The photo below is of the group mixing plaster.

So far it has been a great class. I am looking forward to seeing how their bowls turn out.
