awards

Last month I entered this nesting dish set into the Gold Coast Potters Association's Annual Members' exhibition. I was lucky enough to be commended with the Ruth Lyons' Encouragement Award. 
Judge Di Peach, had this to say about my work;
"When nested I could see how well this set was proportioned, equally stepped in both height and diameter. They were precisely thrown, with a slit-and-crossover feature, and very neatly turned. Small colourful feathers so realistically hand painted I thought at first they were decals were positioned around the feature split and with a flawless glaze made altogether a very visually satisfying and functional set."
Considering this is my first year to exhibit with the Potters', I am so thankful to receive such an award and these positive comments about my work.
The Overall Winner of the exhibition was Anne Mossman, with a piece from her set 'Still Life II'. Di Peach said "The small dimpled bottle amongst Anne Mossman’s “Still Life II” was an exquisite wee thing. Slip cast and the surface then minutely gouged and refined its translucency was an additional quality."
I was so happy to see Anne win this award, I have been a fan of her work for years and it is so reassuring to see small works given such great credit.
