All Handmade

All Handmade Gallery is a beautiful little space in Waverley, Sydney. Helen Stephens, the gallery owner, has created a lovely ambience, where the sunlight streams in through the front window onto tables and shelves lined with handmade ceramics, and sometimes painting and textiles too. There are little drawers that hold a treasure trove of tiny works, and a wonderful and ever-changing selection of objects by Australian and international ceramicists. I'm part of an exhibition of jugs by 15 Australian based makers - Pru Venables, Patsy Hely, Gerry Wedd, Kenji Uranishi, Tony Warburton, Penny Smith and Louise Boscacci, to name a few - opening there next week. The show runs from April 24th until May 22nd, and the exhibition is being opened by architect Phillip Cox at 6pm April 24th. I won't be able to make it unfortunately, but hope some of you can!
(The image is one of the little jugs I made for this show, about 10cm tall, slipcast porcelain with decals).
