MANLY ARTIST MARKET - Saturday 24 September, 9am - 3pm
This year Manly Artist Market is an indoor event held at the Queenscliff Surf Life Saving Club, North Steyne, Queenscliff and I will be exhibiting there along with 22 other local ceramicists, printers, jewellers, weavers, sculptors, photographers and painters.
Artists from all over the Northern Beaches display and sell their art, showcasing their latest creations. What a wonderful opportunity to meet the artists and see their work!
Welcome to my obsession, glass. Glowing colours, fluid forms, beautiful beads, molten magic!
The world is an amazing and confusing place and making things has always been my way of trying to make sense of this life. Working with a molten material that sometimes seems to have a mind of its own continues to surprise and delight me (and sometime frustrate me!).
Over the last decade I've spent countless hours at the flame experimenting with a wide variety of techniques. Slowly but surely my own slightly quirky and idiosyncratic style has been emerging and the studio is filling up with all sorts of weird and wonderful creations.
Fire Bird Beads is a teaching studio and also open to the public as part of the Open Studios of the Pittwater Artists Trail. In 2015 the Trail has something happening on the first weekend of each season. All studios are open on the first weekends in March, September and December and there is a group exhibition on the first weekend of June.
You can also see some of my work at Craft NSW, 104 George Street, The Rocks. In November I exhibit with the Arcadian Artists and it's always a great weekend following that trail. In February, May, September and November I'll be at the Coal Loader Artisan Market in Waverton.
