There is so much happening in our home town this week that we are going to spread the news over the next few days so you don't all become overwhelmed! We hope all Melbourne peeps squish in to Craft Victoria this Thursday night for the opening of not 1, not 2, but 3 AMAZING shows. In gallery 2 the wonderous Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison will be treating us to new artist books and works on paper in their new show A Key To Help make Your Own World Visible . The ladies of HML have always admired the work of these two prodigious,and quite frankly, magical artists (they are in our book I MAKE STUFF)

we will also be stopping off in Brunswick Street because we have been hearing great things about The Ring Show at studio Ingot. 100 rings by 40 artists is an impressive overview of what is happening in the world of contemporary jewellery. Studio Ingot is a great space, much underrated we think. It has always struck a great balance between mid career and emerging makers. We'll report on what we we saw later in the week.

Does anything sound more delicious than being in Brisbane this week? Lets face it, the weather is spectacular, Liana Kabel ,the most fantastic plastic jeweller, is having a new show. And it's taking place is possibly the world best icecream store - the Movenpick at Southbank! This sounds like the perfect combination of craft and gastronomy!

of course if the ladies of HML could be anywhere this week we would be in New York to bear witness to the amazing virtuosity of Michael Velliquette's new work at the Museum of Arts and Design. His paper totem looks so extraordinary in the pics he sent us but we get the feeling that to really get the true impact of this work you have to be there. Oh perhaps we should fire up the private jet? lets see how the week pans out.
