Just got home tonight after being away all day and found my new copy of ‘The Journal of Australian Ceramics’ in the mailbox. Inside was a photo I took of my work in a type of photo called ‘knolling’ which is a photo of orderly objects taken from above. Very exciting to see my ceramics published in such a beautiful journal.
You can see the state of my studio floor! Needs a good mop… also wish I had not had so much light coming in from the window on the left but I was rushing to photograph these, just before the deadline.

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.
I have just taken out of the kiln matching side plates to go with my wave design dinner plates. I now need to work on pasta bowls to complete the set. Maybe cups or a larger platter or bowl as well. Making the plates doesn’t take too long but hand painting the waves takes ages and a steady hand…..
On our last summer holiday we were visiting Mimosa National Park in NSW. One day we went to one of our favourite beaches Middle Beach and watched some massive waves crashing against the rocks. I quickly did a black ink drawing and these are the pieces I have made from that drawing.
Winkelen is a fantastic online magazine showcasing the best in Australian interior design. I am excited to be told one of my plates is featured in the November issue!
