Mark the dates in your diaries - April 5th to May 29th - Sculpture on the Greens at Kooindah Water Resort, Wyong. This will be my first sculpture installation!!! I found out on Saturday. See images below for inspiration for this proposed work. The shapes will be similar but surface designs different. There will be 30 of these forms of varying sizes emerging form the ground. Stay tuned for progress images of the new work.
In September last year my Termite Mounds were accepted as part of the Gosford Art Prize Ceramics section - very happy and excited about that. See image below.
Termite Mounds, 2012. Clay body - Keane's Toast. Technique - Pinched & Coiled Forms. Decoration - Line design with Clear Crackle Raku glaze inside & out. Firing - Raku with reduction. Photography - Steve Cummings.
I was also lucky enough to win the student section of the Port Hacking Art Prize - especially exciting to meet Greg Daly and chat to him about my work and why he chose it. The pieces reminded him of the landscape - the undulating hills and glimpses of colour you catch as you pass through, driving those long stretches of road in the country. He combined two entries I submitted, to create one display. I was thrilled - it's great when someone sees things in your work, you don't.

I love creating, turning my ideas into reality, being challenged, and immersed in realising an idea. In these moments I am absorbed, inspired and wrapped in my own world. It's wonderful!
