Week 3: Ceramics Class

I would quite like to say these are my own ceramic pieces, but I had wrapped mine up before I grabbed my camera. Luckily Tatiana let me take some photos of her work in progress... she is quite prolific! Mine are a bit stumpier and wonkier than these little gems!

Stormy Weather

The conversation between water and sky is always one I want to eaves drop on... the  light and colours they share are so wondrous and changeable.

NP and I got to go up to Hawks Next last weekend with my sister Hannah and her girlfriend Lauren - these are 2 photos taken 1 hour apart. The storm passed over quickly without a drop of rain so we continued our late afternoon dip. Even more magical was NP's dolphin sighting off the coast... a special moment.

Photographer: Uta Barth

I've liked Uta Barth's photography since my University days... I've been meaning to share some examples of her work with you for a little while now!

You can find further writing on the artist here and here.

I've just started an evening class learning ceramics so Feeling Fuzzy? might have a bit of a pottery-bent for the next 9 weeks...

Here is some work that I quite like... I think it might take a while to get anywhere near the likes of these!

Esther Flemming

I've been lucky enough to meet the amazing Esther Flemming - a talented up-and-coming textile designer completing an internship at our studio at Sheridan.

She recently graduated from the Textile Design Course at TAFE and we snapped her up after seeing her end of year exhibition work. Her prints are inspired by her travels - bright colours and quirky motifs make me feel like I'd quite like to be on holidays! She's applied them to beautiful sun-chairs often found at European beaches. Her background in graphic design definitely enhances her ability to conceptualise ideas and be experimental within a brief. As well as being quite talented she is just a lovely girl to work with.

If anyone is in need of some amazing prints or a talented new designer you can contact Esther here.
