A busy month

Wow, am I glad that this month is almost over! 3 Exhibitions in one month is a definite no-no. On the 7th an exhibition started at the Art B gallery in Bellville, showcasing 5 jewellers. I was the only one that incorporated glass into my work.

A week later I arrived in Bloemfontein, almost a 1000 km from Cape Town, where I shared exhibition space with a pewter artist at a beautiful house museum. I took my trusty little Hot Head with me, and did live demonstrations to the visitors. I had forgotten how beautiful Bloemfontein was!

And yesterday I entered some teapots for the regional Ceramic SA exhibition. To my relief I was informed today that both pieces were accepted! The exhibition will start on the 15th of November at the Ceramics Museum in Durbanville.

I will try and post some pictures as soon as I can of my entries.

Wow congratulations Diana on getting accepted for the upcoming exhibition! I have just been looking through your photos and I love your original idea of combining lampwork beads and ceramics. I came to your blog through Torch Bugs. I love your beads and how you use them, fab!

Thank you Michelle!
It has been an interesting year so far. In November 2008 we started talking about all the what-if's of combining the 2 mediums. I have been wonderfully blessed by the most amazing ceramic artists that live in my city, and who are so generous with their advise and support.
