The commission list and CV .pdfs and the downloadable commission reports for the recent year’s activities, as .pptxs might be too much for you iPhone users but the full screen does them justice – enjoy + feedback welcome.
Many meals have been made from produce gathered within a kilometre from the property, including lamb cuts and fish and mussels from the Blackman river. This little parcel was found outside the back door from Dot & Mike Evans who own the other two story sandstone building in the village.
. . . and as we are tropical folk at heart, we are really grooving on jam and paste-making down there.
The second studio sale day in a rare moment when there were no clients in the studio. I had this shot as my wallpaper on the iPhone all the time we were on holidays - we have spent two months at our other residence, shop and garden in Tunbridge Tasmania. We returned to the studio yesterday and this is the first post for 2014, yeah!
Shanna was successful in her ‘art start’ grant proposal, early in 2013. Both Barbara and I mentored her in all aspects of her business / jewellery start up. We have been mates for quite some time now and have followed her work. The piece of wood we gave Shanna is from our old store in Tunbridge, Tasmania. Water etched and with traces of old paint, this piece if timber fits with her aesthetic, beautifully. We thought that some of the grant fee we earned should be put back into Shanna’s own practice so we commissioned an object in response to the timber piece. It was delivered last week but we still have no idea about her title, we shall all wait for a comment + feedback. Between us, we have wonderful examples of local jewellers work. In fact we have pieces buy everyone who has ever spent studio time with us over the years.
Late afternoon shot in the studio . . . “We are amazed that he’s three already, with what was going on with him as a puppy. No one was too sure he would make it to adulthood – such a maniac for chewing and swallowing everything. Accident prone: tick, hip displacement, busted claw, two surgeries to remove foreign objects from his gut . . . Now he is in fantastic condition and has developed into a fine dog, he’s super fit and certainly not overweight. Extremely affectionate and gentle. After everything we have done to him he’s still excited to see us and enter the surgery. Love you ronE – well done to Barb and Mal” – Wilston Vet on Newmarket Road.
This is the second change-over from posts we have done since the sale last weekend. The Hexagon range has singles, articulated doubles in all golds silvers and combination finishes, in fact Anne Harper dropped in today to collect her coral bracelet restring wearing her matted double gold ones.
