New beginnings - again

This blog is usually dedicated to my personal ceramic practice, and as I really value publications that stay on topic it will continue to be so. It documents the creative process behind the scenes and hopefully provides a more in-depth vision of (one) artist’s way; questions, struggles, ups and downs, without too much embellishment.
Right now the rhythm of my practice is changing – a bit like a having a new baby in the family (together with sleepless nights, worries about the future, delight in new opportunities, energy and potential).
The new “baby” is called ClayMake Studio and (to keep the metaphor going) its birthday was on Tuesday 7/8/2018 when we signed the lease on the property and received the keys of what will become a ceramic studio.
Until now, I was splitting my creative time and focus between (in broad terms) studio practice and teaching. Now I’m adding another big project to the picture – running an open access ceramics studio. And yes, I’m very excited.
 I will still make my own work that I’ll talk about here – there is exhibition coming in November in Mundaring Arts Centre - but lot of my time will be devoted to ClayMake.
ClayMake Studio will be run by me and my daughter Emma. You can find out a bit more about it here:
So if you don’t hear from me in a while, you know where to find me!
