I'm looking forward to seeing the Aussie capital in a few weeks. I'll be in Canberra at the Potter's Society for a two day workshop Saturday the 12th & Sunday the 13th of May. I'll be demonstrating soft throwing, altering, working with foam slump molds, slip decorating and a few other tricks I have up my sleeve. I'll also be lecturing on my time in China and hopefully showing images from the project I'm currently working on in Ernabella.
I've been offered about a thousand cups of tea in the last two weeks so I know Ill be making teapots and other tea related items during the workshop. It's nice to be in a culture that appreciates a good cup of tea and by that I mean an actual full cup of tea. Chinese cups for green tea are so small that they feel like a kid's tea set at times. I just started two teapots for the Ernabella guys to decorate. I'm interested to see what direction they will take with the forms. I'm hoping to see a kangaroo or two jumping across the forms in the next week or so.
