We all loved making totems together at the Butter Factory last weekend - sharing our stories about pottery, a bit of expertise (thanks Lane!), and some goss (always), and solving the problems of the world, as you do. All of us are working avidly towards two BIG exhibitions early next year. First is at the Gympie Regional Gallery in March 2011 then at the end of April we will be exhibiting at the Noosa Regional Gallery. We'll keep you posted!

III Biennale International De Ceramica De Marratxi - Robyn's Prize

Robyn Gill's prizewinning work - Coral Cone

Mallorca, Spain, 2010.

Now exhibited in Marratxi at the Museu de Fang

The same selection criterion was that it motivates to the jury, with unanimous decision in all cases, to choose the work ‘Coral Cone’ from the Australian Robyn Gill, to choose it as the winner of the prize ‘Terra de Fang. La Caixa’, assigned with 4.000 Euros.

“From the first moment we had the surprise of the big quantity of works that were presented at the biennial, what indicates that people like it, search of risk, of not staying in the tradition”, explained GarcĂ­a, “and for the election of the winners, that it was very difficult, we bore in mind the trend to the author ceramics, contemporary, avant-garde”.

Photographing our work

Another Sunday at Lane's and we bought cameras and tripods and backdrops and took lots of photos of our work. Here are a couple of images.

Linda's beautiful textures with glazes

Liana's been experimenting with pitfiring - love those smokey colours.

Planning day

We had a planning day at Lane's recently and brainstormed lots of dreams, schemes and real projects. Importantly we decided on more socialising, less meetings talking, more making art, less administration... New directions for AMN, yeah!!


ArtMakers Noosa are working together to produce a series of totems. Our darling Lane initiated the project and we'll be workshopping at the Butter Factory later in the year. We hope that you can see the resulting totem forest at our exhibition from 15th March to 5th April at the Gympie Regional Gallery.
