Short video interview with me for the Etsy Local Market

A few weeks ago I was picked to be interviewed for the Etsy Local Melbourne Market. This market has been organised by Melbourne Etsy sellers to actually get us out from behind our computers and meet our customers in the flesh. I had to bring all my work down to Melbourne and set up my stall, as if it was the real day of the market. I had my makeup done by a lovely woman, something that I am definitely not used to, but made me look presentable! I was quite nervous and there was a bit of waiting around, but the crew there made me very comfortable and in the end I just figured I had to be myself, as that’s all I had to give. The funniest thing was when the video was first showed to me, I thought they had dubbed my voice! I had no idea I sounded like that…

These two pictures are of the work from my last kiln firing on Friday. Unfortunately I lost a tree dinner plate during firing otherwise there would be two complete tree sets. The three blue pasta bowls are following previous work which is inspired by the ocean waves near Tathra NSW. The tree dinnerware are what I see everyday up here in the mountains.
