This week was a monumental week for me, as my work is now on display at Gallery One in Mitcham. I am finally living my dream I have had since I was 15 years old.
The backgrounds of the photos this week are a table, block of chocolate, the seat at the fine frame studio, a loom my grandad made, a jumper of a volunteer/artist at Gallery One, sponge at Really Useful Pots, another sponge, an item in Susanna's living area looks like an old pan used to heat the bed sheets, wall of pebbles, pink pj's, jumper hood, quilt cover, ceramic bottles, jewellery, another sponge, a bag, some homemade critters, scarf, car console, my cousin's top, my notebook, canvas and half of the square my cousin decorated.
As you may know I have started a drawing table at the markets and it will also be available during the open studio sessions at Gallery One. I ask people to decorate a small square of paper and I will use them to fold cranes when I needed. I have stated who decorated the cranes under each of the photos.
If you would like to participate in the 1000 Cups of Cranes project you are welcome to decorate 2 small squares of the same size. (between 3 cm - 4.5 cm square). Please be aware that when they are folded into cranes there is not a large surface that is visible, so you do not need to spend a lot of time or be artistic. Please post to 6 Alma St Panorama, with your name on the back of your squares and if you include a return address I will do my best to post you back the crane if it is used in my project.
This week on Saturday Susanna and I had a making in the markets session at Flinders St Market. We had a fabulous group of ladies who made some AMAZING creatures from clay. If you are interested in more clay classes please let me know Susanna and I will be running classes at Really Useful Pots studio in the Barossa and if there is enough interest I will run some either at Mum's place in West Beach or at another location (if i find one)

If you have found one of these cranes please keep it until march 2015 when you will be asked to bring it to the exhibition opening night, register your email address HERE so I can send you an invite to the opening night of the exhibition. So your crane can be placed into an artwork at the exhibition.
