We were in Sydney last week for our Christmas present to the big boys. Walked ourselves into the ground at the zoo and aquarium mostly. We all had a wonderful time together.
The boys had never been to Sydney before so it was a great surprise. Here I am with my 12 and 11 year old grandsons, Chris and Leo. Gorgeous boys.
We celebrated Australia Day weekend with more family at Straddie, Edward didn't miss watching the departure of any barge. The sound of the toot had him out on the deck in an instant.
I have been spending a lot of time out in the bush lately looking at the blackened trees and taking lots of photos. Great inspiration, so I have been working haven't I? Researching clays, making underglaze pencils, crayons, watercolours and inks for drawing on the surface. Next step is to make and test all the above. I am wanting to use a porcelain that will throw well so am going to mortgage the house and buy a couple of imported clays.
