9 years ago when I started working with clay- I created a range of vases and vessels.  First in white, then in pastel colours.  I stopped because they took too long (bad mould= need to sand the surface for ages) and even though I made them BEFORE Mud, I didn’t stand a chance since the owner of Mud is mates with Donna Hay.

Anyhoo, enough ‘o that.  Some peeps have been asking me to make stuff again, and now that I work at Craft Victoria, I can see where the gaps are.  I’m also gearing up for a couple of exhibitions- both are related to tea drinking.  At least I drink tea like there’s no tomorrow.

I have to say, I’m totally enjoying making the original shapes by hand.  I’m using the coil technique.  Its where you roll long bits of clay and coil them into a shape, then smooth the sides.  These will be fired then sent to the masters of mould making at Northcote Pottery.  I have made moulds before…but I don’t want to screw it up.
