Something old something new....

I have been to more weddings in the last 6 months than I have in my entire life. It seems that getting married is big right now! Which is fine by me - love a good wedding I do! So when Object asked me earlier this year if I wanted to be part of an exhibition called BLUE, where each artist was asked to make some work responding to a saying or a phrase containing the word blue, I jumped at the chance to get some of this marriage business out of my system and into some work - and to knock off a few overdue wedding presents at the same time! So working with the phrase Something Old Something New Something Borrowed Something Blue I've been playing around with some pieces that are a bit of a mixture of all that. Here's a sneak peak of what i've come up with for starters.

The show opens at Object in Sydney at the end of July.

Pee Bear Teapot!

Yet another fabulous offering from Melbourne Ceramicist Vipoo Srivilasa.
The teapot is the result of a collaboration between Vipoo and a Thai Celadon Factory, made during his residency in Chang Mai in Northern Thailand last year. If you're in Sydney more of Vipoo's work can be seen at Depot Gallery (2 Danks St, Waterloo) from 15-26 of June.
