New in May 2021
I was very busy this month as many of the sculpture exhibitions close their entires in early to mid June. As I was planning ceramic sculptures they needed to out of the kiln and finished by end May.
In early June is the Dobell Arts and Crafts Festival - 4 , 5th and 6th June. My entry, "4 kids on a log" won first prize in the ceramics section. It was the only one I put up for judging!
From 26th June to 23 July, I will be exhibiting 2 sculptures at the Hunter Wetlands Centre in Shortland, NSW (Newcastle). The theme is "Unfurl - sculpture and ink in the Wetlands" and is a collaboration between The Hunter Sculptors and the Newcaster Printmakers . My entries feature the drosera spathulata, a carnivorous plant that lives in the wetlands. The plant, at twice life size is held in a ceramic hand. The other ceramic sculpture features 5 enlarged fronds of the sun dew. I had to make 400 beads for the "dew" spots! Both sculptures are about 35cm in their largest dimension.
See June and July for the other exhibitions.
