A little bit potty

Further to yesterday's post on Craft Cubed 2014, I did want to mention that my friend local ceramicist Lene Kuhl Jakobsen is also taking part in this.  She will be at Fed Square on Tuesday 5 August and Friday 8 August taking part in the 'Clay Market' and on Friday she will be giving a making small porcelain shapes demonstration.  I have a couple of Lene's pieces at home and was thrilled to discover she was local some years ago when I went to the Ivanhoe Makers Market.  Lene also sells her beautiful ceramics at The Rose Street Artists Market in Fitzroy.

Speaking of ceramics, it's a little while away but the Australian Ceramics Open Studios 2014 is being held on the weekend of the 16 & 17 August and will also feature another local potter Kim Tarpey who is taking part in the event for the first time showing ceramic sculpture, paintings and printmaking.  Kim actually has two work spaces - one where she does ceramics and printmaking and another where she teaches and does water colour.  She's located opposite the Panton Hill CFA with views of the Kinglake ranges and Mt Macedon on the Main Road to St Andrews Market.  Kim has also just received The Walker Ceramic Award for 'Best Teapot' at the Sydney Teapot Show. Wow!

And in case I don't get a chance to post tomorrow which is fairly likely, I did want to mention that my friend Helen Webster is holding her annual Raffal Winter sale (if you're after a beautiful scarf or wrap plus handbags and jewellery) at Ivanhoe Uniting Church, 19 Seddon Street this Saturday from 3 - 5 pm (cash, cheque and credit card accepted) and the Olympic Village Makers Market is also on in West Heidelberg from 10 am - 2pm on Saturday.
