Put the kettle on.....

These are snaps of the collection I made for the "Put the kettle on" group exhibition in July this year at Red Poles in the McLaren Vale here in South Australia.

We each made a tea cosy in the theme of the Mad Hatters Tea Party which was a lot of fun indeed!

I have been playing around with clay in the Ceramics Studio at Tafe O'Halloran Hill. Here are two examples. The necklace made with pressing lace into the clay. The earrings by pressing vintage buttons into the clay. Bit of an experiment!
