Again With The Repetition...

Production mode... that's what I'm in. Last week I saw lots and lots of tiny little bits pass through my hands from sanding to glazing and setting... 




I had lots of little Let Go Porcelain rings to make and during the process of constant repetition realised the little message here is to LET GO... right in front of me... it's hard not to remember these things when they're staring at you in the face. I'm so glad my jewellery doesn't say "eat  pie" I'd be stuffing my face subconsciously...




Oh, and PS.. for those of you attending the Summer Festivals like Peats Ridge.... Jimmi says Hi...



Just Like School..

Do you remember those achievement awards from primary school?? The ones for good spelling or a graduation to your pen license? Well Mrs peterson Pottery got one this week!!


How Cool!! I donated some gifts to the Blackheath Public School Trivia night and they raised $5000.00. And as a thank you, I received my very own certificate of appreciation. 

It really is the little things that make me happy. I am such a kid. 

BE KIND

My sister in law is just awesome. From the inside out, a true beauty. She lives in America so I don't get to see her and it feels like we are very overdue for a long cup of coffee... 
I sent her a BE KIND Porcelain necklace for her birthday, and as she wears it often, it gets lots of comments... she wears it well.

Her good friend Adrian is a wonderful photographer. This summer he did a photo shoot with Jess... alas she was wearing the pendant and it too got lots of feedback...

The Girl or The Coat???

Not quite sure if i love this coat because of the coat... or because the girl looks so darn pretty?
Either way, it's inspired me to invest some time into sewing this season..... 
Perhaps I could sew myself a pair of her lips while I'm at it. Super gorgeous!

For The Love of Repetition.....

Complete obsession, that's where it comes from, that what it is, that's where it's heading. Yes, I actually feel agitated if I spend too much time away from the studio... addiction, yes?

I'm starting to think there is a slight case of OCD that runs through me. Or at least something that makes me want to cut out hundreds of TINY little pieces of clay, and stamp them and sand them and paint them and stack them neatly into the kiln like a jigsaw puzzle and dip them in glaze and stack them again and unstack them and sort them into pairs and match them up...... over and over again... hundreds of little bits.... till my fingers are numb! My hands have a thirst to be immersed in this process. 

There is something about repetition that really turns me on. Something about the process of printmaking and stamping, and stationary in neat little stacks. How can it be that this ritual of repeating the same process over and over can be so exciting? 

Whatever it may be, halfway through the process I am always about ready to give up, until something makes me keep going... just to see it through to the end perhaps??

... who would have thought that a teeny pair of earrings would go through such a journey.
