Pottery Club Fundraiser

Inspired by some great photos
The Pottery Club has decided to raise 
a few dollars to put  towards the new studio.
by producing some blank cards for sale.
Members were asked to provide a photo of their work
Collectively they were sent to the printer. 
The above image is the one that sparked the idea.
Thanks to Jennifer Gadsden and 
her fab photos of pendents under construction.
The cards are high quality glossy.
Some identify the artist, the above image is one of mine.
Egyptian paste bracelet.

Renae makes beautiful bowls.

This clay looks like pressed sand when fired.
You guessed it, Renae!

These became the most beautiful Christmas decorations.
With a little bit of gold lustre and some string.
Renae again.

This is another one of mine.
Raku plate. 

Jennifer has been making rings, cuff links and pendants.

This is a father and son collection.
Nicholas and Bob Reither
I hope I have the correct spelling this time!

Renae is getting serious about her pottery, 
she has developed a business name 
based on the pronunciation of her surname.
Very professional. You might find her work on instagram?

This is another of Jennifer's. 

These sculptures were made by David Gee
Approximately 50 cm's tall
It is the Aussie version of 'See no evil,
Hear no evil, Speak no evil'
Cards are available at $3.00 each or 4 for $10.
If you are interested in purchasing some cards, send me an email,
leave a comment or call in to the studio.

Help me fund the replacement umbrella, last one was totaled by the wind.
Note the lime green top.
I was unable to buy a navy blue one

The photo is a little blurry but the flavour was clear and sharp
A tree full of cherries. This is just a small pick.
Best crop in years. Wow! 
Every household should have a cherry tree...they are the best.
And they don't stain your hands and clothes when picking and eating. 
Unlike our Australian weeping Mull berry which had the best crop too!
It will fruit again around Easter.

Do you eat globe Artichoke?
If so you would be sad to see I have let the blooms flower.
MS had said they were stunning flowers so I had to see for myself
The transformation from the buds shown here either side slowly
broaden...then came what looked like blue spiders legs slowly
emerging....I was surprised to see it end up like a giant thistle.
Maybe next year I will take the plunge and eat the artichoke.
They need to be picked early 
and it is the inner core of the bud that is eaten.
