African Landscapes in Clay

At the opening of the exhibition. Thanks to Colleen Lehmkuhl for the image
In a way it felt like the first exhibition in a long time. In fact it was only because it was the first work I was showing produced in my own studio. There was a surprisingly good turn out considering it was the same night as the world cup final. Here I can be seen chatting to Jerice Doeg at the opening. Hank Doeg, Marentia and Jan Kooiman in the background. The exhibition is at the Association of Arts and will continue until 27th July.

Finally I have some new images to post. These 3 pieces, the first from my new kiln, will be part of my submission for the exhibition 'African Landscapes in Clay' to be held at the Association of Arts Gallery in Pretoria from 11th - 28th July. How wonderful to be producing work again!

Paperplaster Workshop Tomorrow

I will be presenting my workshop Paperplaster; the mold making revolution tomorrow at The Pottery Studio in Bryanston. I had always dreaded making molds until I came across this unbelievable way of working with plaster that not only cuts down mold making time but also uses about 75% less plaster than usual. The revolutionary paperplaster method has completely changed my approach to mold making. Introduced to me by Sandra Black as taught by Trudy Golley, this is an excellent introduction to basic mold making as well as a great new method for those more experienced in this area.
