subversive clay | A D E L A I D E !

*ahem* Yes, yes, I know, this is 6 weeks late. 
Michaela Kloeckner and myself flew to Adelaide in late September for the 2012 Australian Ceramics Triennale. The 4 day conference was packed with key note speeches, panel discussions, workshops, demonstrations and exhibition openings. Honestly, I was overwhelmed and that is why I haven't been able to write about it until now. I could barely even make notes during the conference, my head was buzzing and I couldn't make any sense of it. 6 weeks on I can hardly begin to untangle my thoughts.

[Good morning!]
I was inspired and intrigued by so many of the presenting artists;

[Gerry Wedd]

[Stephanie Outridge-Field]

[Akio Takamori]

[Vipoo Srivilasa!]

[Ashley Fiona and I played swapsies, yay!]

There are at least half a dozen more in depth posts that I would like to write. Until then, I will note that the recurring theme throughout the conference, whether during the presentations, exhibitions or discussions was this: use your work to tell your story.
