Go Figure

CRAFT FINDS OF THE WEEK

Given that we have far too many ceramic pieces to limit our craft finds to just the one day this week, we'll be bringing you a different flavour each day for your viewing amusement. Today it's the ceramic figurine...

You should all know by now that both ladies of HML are devout op-shop treasure hunters, and not just because we're cheap! We have a number of favourite haunts in which we search eternal for those very special chip free ceramic objet d'art (aka nonna dust-collectors) that find there way into our homes and stare silently at us from shelves in our studios.

Ramona favours the small blue thing...


While I favour quaint Heidi styling, regency garbed gels and hubba hubba cocktail kitsch.

love ceramic everything - watch out for Shannon Muir, a QLD artist who incorporates these kinds of figures into new fired ceramic pieces that are both sinister and amusing - I went to her recent artist talk.

I've just finished reading Mirka Mora's Wicked But Virtuous. She assures me that dust in nourishing. She should know.

You have to love a woman that hates to dust.
