The facebook elves kindly reminded me that three years ago, Dec 2nd was the day that the 2012 Holmesglen TAFE diploma of ceramics graduates proudly showcased the wares that they poured time, sweat and tears into at the Pottery Expo at Federation Square.

My wares are the copper red vessels, textured porcelain tiles and geometric forms. The other handbuilt vessels and teaset were produced by another wonderful student – Pie Bolton.

So much has changed in the past five years! My hair is much lighter and shorter is one example! Without this diploma course, who knows where and what I would be doing right now…

…I very well might not be gearing up to decorate and handle mugs!!

I have quite a tight deadline in getting ready for my next market (Dec 12th – BrisStyle’s Bazaar Market at Whale Male, Southbank – and the Makers Gallery upcoming exhibition (more on that soon), so I best get back into the studio!

With a big smile for you,
