the fifties fair

Today, we made the journey out to Wahroonga, to the beautiful Rose Seidler House (Harry was such a good son), for the Historic Houses Trust's Fifties Fair. It was a lovely sunny day, everyone was dressed in their fifties best.
I went ready to shop, but found little to buy. There were, as always, lots of clothes and collectables, but we came away with no more than some ridiculously cheap tiki & hula girl mugs and a silk scarf.

But while I'm on the topic of buying great collectables, I just got this beautiful ceramic pot. It came from Etsy, it's Kenwood, it's oven proof and I love it. I still haven't had a lobster, but I guess collecting them is the next best thing...

more floral troubles

It seems 2010 is my year of cutting out flowers, except this time from polypropylene, instead of aluminium. I'm working on pieces for Girls Around the World, the tenmoregirls exhibition opening on the 9th September, at Gaffa Gallery in the Sydney CBD (more information about that very soon).

I'm not making jewellery this time, but with any luck, wall mounted, steel pieces. It's quite a step out of my comfort zone, so much bigger than what I usually make. A big thank you, once again, to the amazing Madeleine, for the donation of the pink polypropylene.

It's been a while since I posted last, and yet I've so little to say. I'll simply leave you with this as a treat. Great building, I do so love a decorative wall, and even the cross is stylish. It's a church I found in St Mary's on my way to pick up work from the laser cutter. Enjoy.
