The smallest stoneware pourer was thrown into the firing before Xmas. I made it way too quickly, and it is, well, rather tiny. But it was a good exercise about what not to do and I'm sure it will find a progressive reincarnation in the not too distant future. Meanwhile, I think it will be perfect for soy sauce.

The living room floor is currently covered in original 'headspace' works from 2013. I'm pretty excited to be choosing (what I think are) the best, and adding them to my Etsy shop over the next week or so. If any pieces caught your eye during the year, and you would like to purchase them, you can head to Etsy or you are always welcome to contact me directly. Individual works will be priced between $30 and $80. They are all approximately A5 in size (1/2 a standard A4 page), with free shipping in Australia and $10 for international purchases. To see the full range, please have a squizz at my Pinterest page or Flickr page. I'll also be offering the digital works as gorgeous prints, and of course, if you would prefer prints of any of the originals, I can certainly do that too.

I've decided it's going to be 'The Year of the (completed) Art Journal'.
It's been a long long time since I regularly used a journal to capture seeds of ideas. I can't help but be one of those people who wants a page to look "good" (whatever that may mean), so when I get something down that's way too scribbly, I find myself incredibly disappointed. I have a number of journals that I've started over the years, only to be abandoned for a new one. The whole premise is of course exasperated when I spy incredible examples on the internet that look like accomplished finished artworks.
So... here's to consolidation ...and scratchings and mistakes and messy delights!
