Portrait beakers available for order

Another collaborative effort! Nest Studio spotted these beakers and thought some of their customers might like one (or two!) of their very own. So we've teamed up, offering an opportunity to order a wheel-thrown beaker with a hand-drawn portrait, taken from a photograph supplied by you. See what Carly says about the project here.
You have a few weeks to get your order in, with the final date for orders being the 30th of October.
Contact Nest Studio to get details and fill out an order form.

Tandem project with Umbrella Prints

It pleases me greatly to announce the launch of a Tandem Project with Umbrella Prints - "modern australian screenprinted fabric".
Using 2 of their their beautiful designs, "Bird in Paradise" and "Crosshatch", I have created a series of beakers and vases. You can experience them "in the flesh" at Nest Studio's shop @ 147 Magill Road, Magill. Then you can give Amy or Carly some money and take a vase or beaker or two home with you. You know you want to... Do it, do it.

UPDATE : See what Carly and Amy have to say about the project on their blogs.

waiting for the kiln

i'm waiting on a glaze firing to come out of the kiln. i've got the tummy flutters, restless sleep. arrgghh... does this ever get easier? it's not even a complicated firing.
it does, however, hold some exciting goodies which i will share in due course... unless anything goes horribly wrong in the firing!
