Today the last 12 pieces for the Sculpture by the Sea are coming out of the glaze kiln. YEY!!! I am almost at the finishing line, with a month to spare. A record!

I will tell you more about it closer to the installation date. Being an installation, I won't be able to work out some of the details until the actual setting up on site and I find that quite uncomfortable.
I guess it is called "pushing personal boundaries".

Tomorrow I will be starting the 3 months residency at Heathcote Museum and Gallery in City of Melville (Perth).
But that is the story for the next blog....
