Termite Mounds, 2012
Found out yesterday I've been awarded 2 x 1st prizes at the Sydney Royal Easter Show for my ceramics.
This is very exciting, especially since this year the Royal Easter Show is featuring ceramics at the CLAY ON DISPLAY stand!
Want to come and check out the Arts and Crafts Pavilion?

On TUESDAY 26th March at the CLAY ON DISPLAY stand - some Central Coast Potters Society members will be showing off their creativity with clay. Pop in and say hello.

At the last minute I decided to enter the Gosford Art Prize and low and behold, ... one of my entries was accepted!!!
I am VERY excited about this. Last Friday was the opening to a full gallery crowd. It was wonderful to see so many people interested in viewing an exhibition, supporting the artists and seeing who won. It was a great night.
Of 616 (a record number) entries only 165 were chosen for the exhibition - quite a job for the gallery and judges. It was encouraging to see many of the accepted ceramics entries from members of the Central Coast Potters' Society.
The pots I entered were (description from left to right, front to back) ...
1. Keane's Porcelaineous clay with alpaca fleece, paper kiln fired with eucalyptus leaves, salt, copper oxide and sea grass.
2. Keane's Special K clay with clear glaze, raku fired.
3. Keane's Stoneware clay, paper kiln fired with eucalyptus leaves, salt, copper oxide and sea grass.
Well done everyone. I thought the gallery did a terrific job of displaying the works too.

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!
