heavenly chicken house

My darling sister and Mama have arrived to help collect chicken eggs from the goddesses' coup. The rain has stopped and we went to Bangalow to see the FEHVA exhibition. Sharon Steel's cards with a lino cut angel in red was irresistable. I cracked the kiln and the self saucing earthenware jewellery pieces are now ready for sanding before the process of applying decals.>

ceramic thunder pattern beads

Had a busy morning making minestrone, bread then pesto. Moved some heavy logs around under the poinciana tree to stop the chickens from scratching the soil down onto the driveway. I finally got into the studio and made some ceramic beads using two lino cuts with Chinese thunder pattern to emboss the larger sides. After lunch I headed off to Barratt Galleries to catch up with Damian Kelly on his whirlwind tour for the Print Council.
