On my bike
I'm riding with the Lifecycle registered charity, to raise funds for Canteen, supporting kids with cancer. Early next year I've joining their road fundraising ride. Please read more about their good work and donate here.
Just completed two interviews with author and artist Kamila Waleszkiewicz for the Inglewood Arts Hub. The first article is now up on their blog.
Just finished a very short article for the Indian Ceramic Journal..
In the studio I'm also enjoying going in circles, exploring and experimenting with combining different organic and inorganic materials in paper clay. Also for the IAH Conversations II collaboration trying to incorporate another artist and her photo of yet another artist into a 3D work. Started with paper clay but at this stage looks likely to be in glass...
Still not finished polishing a requested longer journal article...

I presenting new ceramic paper clay work in "Conversations" an inaugural exhibtion, and related events, on Monday 24 April 5:30-8:30pm, launching the Inglewood Arts Hub, Perth, Western Australia. Conversations referred to the collaborative nature of the process of creating the work along with a dozen other artists. If you know an artist living in or near Inglewood, or are an artist yourself, tell them or come along and join in the next collaborative exhibition. Some video of me building the next collaborate work is works is here.
Recently gave two free half day introduction to paper workshops sponsored by the City of Stirling, for the Yokine Potters Group (WA) on Tuesday 9th May. Interesting detail: I gave my first real paper clay workshop at the Yokine Pottery Group in 1993 (apart a workshop for fellow students and staff at Edith Cowan University) 30 years ago! Life is full of circles.
