Merimbula in May

It's nearly winter and everything is lit in silver. Merimbula is still warmer than Melbourne - milder than most places in Australia it seems. It was good having a few days there and unwinding after the stressful business of still not having the studio built.

And Merimbula held many treasures - the Lake board walk with pelicans and other fisher folk enjoying the evening; the mangroves dancing lightly over the mud; the kayak on Wallagoot Lake where the sheltered side of the lake lured us out into the chop on the other side to battle it back against a bit of a wind.

A great break - thank you Shirley - now back to work!

Shirley's Exhibition

The exhibition is at Bulleen Art and Garden. It's a great place for the ceramics with the garden just outside.

Lots of friends and family turned up for the opening and deservedly - the bowls are beautiful - and there may not be too many more in the future - they are getting harder to make, even though the forms keep getting better.

And it's great to share the joy of making things.
