Feeling Blue

Well, I’m not really. In fact, I've spent the last few days rediscovering the nice things about where I live. I feel like I've been looking at Brisbane with new eyes this week! After the come down from the heady delights of Paris, Brisbane was seeming decidedly dull and well….small really. But the other morning I woke up and there was a slight chill in the air, the first sign that the long hot summer (which I hate!) was coming to an end. The sky has turned a darker shade of blue – always a giveaway that summer is over – and despite the drought things seem to be looking fresh and green. Working from home I now also have a whole host of feathered studio buddies who chirp away in the tree outside the window. So it was nice to open the kiln to the sunny yellows of my last post, and the fresh blues of this one. More explorations into colour.

I love these colours, beautiful. Can we have something for scale? please? in my head these pieces are 7.5cm wide and 4 tall.. how did I do? :-)

thanks guys! And sorry Miss Dot, I always forget to put the scale! You were so close....7.5cm x 4.5cm for the single one below, and 6cm x 4.5 for the ones in the set of three.
