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.

Who is the table set for?

I have been playing around with dinnerware that have sculptural elements included. This piece is a reflection of our throwaway consumerist society and the impact of that on the natural environment that we live in.

A girl in a tree

Today I sent off a tree mug and a forest mug to the USA where my customer was buying them for her daughter. Her name is Chiara and she is protesting against forest being destroyed for a new shopping mall by living high up a tree! Unbelievable that my tree and mountain inspired work will end up high in a tree on Bainbridge Island just off the coast of Seattle! I love it! So I looked her up and there is a song! What an inspiration!! 0 001 (1024x768)

 

 

 

 

Rubbish on deserted ocean beach

We had a great overnight camping trip the other day, at 6th mile beach near Cape Liptrap in Victoria, Australia. We did a 9 kilometre walk along the beach. We were the only human footprints, but there were lots of kangaroo, wallaby, wombat and fox prints. However, there still was plenty of signs of humans, as the top tide line was littered with plastic rubbish washed up and piled up. It was really horrible as it was such an amazing beach and wilderness area.
