Australian CERAMICS Open Studios 19 & 29 August 2017
I am participating in the Australian CERAMICS Open Studios, come and visit!
My Cooroy studio is in the tropical heart of the Noosa hinterland, Queensland, where I make a range of domestic ware, decorated with local ash glazes and fired in gas kilns. Cooroy has become a hub for woodfiring, so I also have a range of work from anagama kilns.

Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance: February 16, 2017
Art, Bed and Breakfast
The Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance event Juice & Jam Arts Breakfast had guest speakers Peter Browning from the Hornery Institute and Cathy Hunt from Positive Solutions.
This event showcased the Creative Industries at its best by means of an update on how to progress community culture through mechanisms like product, people and place with innovation and partnerships. This set the groundwork for the following workshop to develop Noosa Councils, Arts Heritage and Cultural Plan.
Entertainment included Ebony Hamacek on the guitar who opened and closed the event. Ebony has an amazing vocal range and an outstanding music career too.
Justin Heazlewood, singer, songwriter and author, renowned for his work in The Bedroom Philosopher, honed in on his career from childhood to stage and boyhood images amounted in much laughter. A supporting video encapsulated a quirky message of believing in oneself. Justin’s promoted his new book ‘Funemployed’ which is all about his artistic journey, no doubt a must read for anyone on this path.
LICENSED TO KILN: February 11, 2017
an exhibition of amazing ceramics
Local potters, Carol Watkins and Desley Turner showcasing their latest works in their exhibition titled
‘Licensed to Kiln’ in the Carriage at Pomona Railway Station Art Gallery.
The exhibition, opened by Beatrice Prost, Sunshine Coast multi disciplined artist, at 10.30 am on Saturday, 11 February 2017,
will encompass a range of wheel thrown and hand built ceramics utilising a range of techniques.
Both Desley and Carol are proponents of alternative firing methods, loving the sometimes unexpected results from atmospheric firings.
Raku, smoke and saggar firings will feature along with traditional functional pottery.
“One thing can be guaranteed”, says Carol. ‘No piece will ever be the same”.
The exhibition will run from 11 February until 14 March 2017 and the Gallery is open 7 days a week.
