Flood Relief Ceramic Auction

I am sure many of you are aware of the devastating floods that affected QLD (and other parts of the country) recently. To help raise funds for The Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal the indefatigable Melbourne-based ceramicist Vipoo Srivilasa has galvanised and organised over 40 ceramic artists to donate work to be auctioned on ebay, with all proceeds going to the flood fund.

The auction goes live on Thursday February 3rd and will end on Sunday February 6th at 9pm. Its a pretty impressive list of both Australian and international artists so please go and have a look and support Vipoo's fantastic efforts and those affected by the floods.

You can preview some of the works here, and find out more information about the auction here.

Hei-good to have you back in the blogging world :-) I included your blog from the other side of the world-from Norway. I am a ceramist and love to watch your blog and be inspired by your work :-) Australia has been hard hit by bad weather at the moment-we think of you and wish you all the best :-) Best regards from Anne-Berte

Those jars and figurines and absolutely wonderful. They have so much character! Even more wonderful than the fact that buying them would be for a good cause! Great post!
