Gallery biz…

In between cracking on in the workshop, we’ve been having a lovely time quietly progressing the gallery/showroom. Still a work-in-progress obviously(!), but the endgame is to have it ready for our inaugural studio open day – an annual event which this year will fall on the 13th November; being the closest Sunday to our Neddy’s hangin’ day.

[So pencil it into your dance cards, lovies, on the off chance you’re around & footloose on the day. n(Ed)]

Megsie’s hopping into more oyster shell production as we speak…

Please note that we are not opening a commercial gallery as such. To all intents and purposes the gallery space (set up in the courtroom) is an in-house showroom; displaying finished pieces from our own studio workshop. That said, we do anticipate holding pop-up exhibitions from time to time (when the force moves us), featuring the work of selected artists of an empathetic bent.

[Megsie’s quite keen to keep her curatorial wheels oiled…in a very low-key, casual kinda way. Such events will be short and sweet; rather in the (blooming) nature of a cactus flower. n(Ed)]

Chevrons…

The cherry on top…

Red letter day here at the workshop;  George and Ian were back to finish off the lighting – kiln bay, coldshop and last-but-so-far-from-least…drumroll, maestro…Netster’s blown glass Paper Lanterns! Omigod, we are in dead set seventh heaven…

Beyond fabulous/perfect way to top off the studio fit out. And then, as if that wasn’t enough, the arvo lights are back…

It’s just the beginning.

And contentment settles lightly as a sigh.

[Loving those lanterns Netty, thanks big time, you ROCK. For those who don’t know the Netster (hard to imagine!), you can acquaint yourself with annette blair: glass here. n(Ed)]
