1000 Cups of Cranes - Week 36

Week 36

Hello, Monday the 15th was my Birthday! It is the year of the horse this year, MY YEAR! I can feel the awesomeness already! My sister Hyeon took me out for some Yum Cha and we also had coffee at Mooi in mitcham. 

I would LOVE it very much if you could all help me. 
 I will be selecting one image from each week to be on display at the exhibition. I am really not quite sure HOW I am going to do this. 
So this is where you come in. I would appreciate it very much if you could 
PLEASE comment on each blog which image is your favourite. 
THIS will help me so very much and I thank you in advance.
If you comment you will be in the running to WIN an awesome prize! 
I have not decided what the prize will be yet, but it will be awesome!

This week I worked on a drawing of Panther, I am not sure if I am going to keep it or sell it. I guess if anyone wants to make an offer on him, for the right price I will sell it. ;o) The photo of the drawing is below this weeks crane images.

I went up to Really Useful Pots this week to catch up with Susanna and work on the coffee cups. I had a collection of cups that had been through a bisque firing and so I decided it was time to do some decorating and have some completed cups, to show you all. I spent the day underglazing as many cups as I could, from memory I believe it was 17 cups. I am very excited to see them. Susanna, bless her heart put on the clear glaze for me and fired them for me. So I will have photos for you very shortly. 

Susanna and I have set up some more classes for some school holidays fun:

Clay Making Classes are on Wednesdays & Thursdays 
1 & 2 October and 8 & 9 October 
2 sessions 11-12.30pm & 2-3.30pm. 
At Really Useful Pots studio in Angaston
Contact Susanna via Facebook or Message her on 0421331181  

Also I will be running another Making in the Markets at Flinders st Market
visit the event for more infomation
this is on sunday the 5th of October, 10am, $30 per head
or to book your place
email me naomi@wonkiekneeart.com or PM me on Facebook

I also attended the Dog Day Out in Mawson Lakes on Sunday this week. It was such a wonderful event, with so many people and their dogs. Mum and I didn't really have time to eat lunch. I had the privilege of drawing some beautiful dogs on the day and I look forward to meeting with all the people who won the raffle prizes I donated and the people who received the 10% off vouchers that were included in Doggie bags given out on the day. 

Time for me to sign off now. I apologise for the REALLY long post... but there is soooo much going on over the next few weeks, but until next week may all your cups be delicious and all your cranes fly free. Make sure you register your email if you found a little bit of luck (a crane) or would like to attend the exhibition opening on the 6th of March and running  until the 27th of March at Gallery One in Mitcham. Please Register your interest here.

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 on the 6th of March (or during the exhibition) , 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.
