What did you do tonight?

This is what I got up to. Now don't think that I'm a whiz at Photoshop or Illustrator.
I'm not.
I've had a lot of help along the way from the awesomely talented Shu Daniels who is a true whiz at all things Photoshop.
So, I'm having to submit a web banner I've laboured to put this together.
I'm not going to give the actual time it took me to 'put' this together...but I'm just say this - it took me more than an hour.

I'm back!

Arrived back from Bali on Sunday night and have now settled back into life and its usual routine. I can't believe how quickly I adjusted to being away and settling back into life back home.

It feels like a distant memory...even though it was only a reality a couple of days ago.

The good news is that I did find something ceramic on my journey through Bali (however brief it was), the bad news is that I didn't find a lot of ceramic related stuff in Bali. BUT the emphasis on the wood industry was unfathomable! There was so much stuff I wanted to buy and would have if it wouldn't have been a trial to get through Customs.

Oh well, there's always next time!

What do you keep by your bedside?

I don't know!
What do I keep beside my bedside? Brooches of course!
Well I do anyway. I've been doing a major clean up in the midst of packing for Bali. A quick getaway has gotten me enthused about the mundane things in cleaning ones room.
Your probably thinking "Seriously, does she really keep a BOWL full of brooches? Does she even wear ALL of those brooches?!"
Yes. Yes I do. I may go through stages of favouring one or two brooches more than others but I'm a firm believer in the belief that all my chosen pretties were created beautifully and deserve a turn to shine!

Test Tiles

Test tiles for my hot fuchsia and pimpin' purple.

Sure they aren't traditional test tiles, but who ever said I was conventional? Certainly not me.

The whole point of glaze testing (for me) with this range, is to see how the colour looks and glaze reacts when confined within a small space.

One day I'll move towards traditional test tiles. But that days not coming for a while!

Step right up its a news alert!

Guess who's going to be at the September Upmarket?!

That's right, ME!

Its going to be great! I'll be having a bigger space this time round and releasing the new ceramic functional line!

In saying that I better get cracking.

Pretty out!

Tuesday, August 3, 2010 colours on their way!

So I've been busy this past weekend and will be for the coming week during my spare time to try and create the elusive hot fuschia, a pimpin' purple and a cool green.
