I am so very thrilled to have an article published in the November edition of The Journal of Australian Ceramics. Vicki Grima OAM, the Editor of the Magazine contacted me a few months ago with regards to running an article on me and my exploration of volcanic glazes. Putting it all together was quite a journey and one that sent me down memory lane. Looking back over my years with clay made me realise just how far I have come and how hard I have worked to get to where I am today. My most recent work, which features in the magazine, is a culmination of years of refining my throwing skills and my perseverance with glaze development and testing, all of which I love immensely. Vicki Grima came over to Perth to launch this latest edition (one of only 3 editions per year!) and to meet the amazing potters that are busy creating in this wonderful part of Australia.

The launch took place Perth Studio Potters (which is also where I teach) and there were over 70 potters and lovers of clay in attendance. My pottery journey is now in print (over 6 pages!) in this magnificent magazine. This, November edition, is all about 'Exploring Surface' so mine is just one of many incredible articles, from a plethora of very interesting Australian artists each of which talks about how they approach the clay surface. This is a

world class magazine, well worth a look, see www.australianceramics.com for more information.

What a day it has been! Setting up for the Botanica Exhibition down at the Moores Gallery in Fremantle. There are 10 amazing artists in total exhibiting and the work is exciting, fresh and diverse. With 2 lovely fellow potters, we spent the day re-painting the gallery plinths with white paint prior to arranging them and then setting up our work. It was excellent to see the gallery go from a large open space, to a structured and filled area.

There are some people to send a big thank you to and these are Natalie Acton for organising the event and pulling us altogether (even with only a month to go before baby is born), Jacek Gosalves for supporting Natalie, Danica Wichtermann for organising the payment system and Stewart Scambler for his generosity in lending us his own perfectly painted plinths (I love how potters club together!) Also, Samantha (I think) for the amazingly wonderful flyer, you are super talented indeed and your design is one that we all love so much.

Now awaiting opening night tomorrow! We are all super excited. Here are some pics of the set-up, lighting not completed yet, but still looking good!
