It's a big week for the ladies of HML. Beck is back at work as a craft superhero - fighting the good fight for craft and design everywhere. I'm taking a break from making valentines posies and cards to polish off a little speech for the opening of Elfrun Lach show in Gallery 2 of Craft Victoria. Elfrun is an extraordinary artist. Her jewellery is so evocative and distinct, it will be easy to sing its praises.
The amazing ceramicist Susan Robey is exhibiting in gallery 1. I was honoured to write her catalogue essay and can't wait to see the work in the space. These paperclay structures seem to defy gravity. They are really spectacular and have to be seen to be believed
In gallery three is the ceramic work of Gerry Wedd. This Adelaide based artist does creates extraordinary tableaux - this time inspired by the idea of 'Australian gothic' - one of the HML ladies' favourite genres. It's fantastic when three such extraordinary artists open the year with such a bang. Hope to see you at Craft Victoria on Thursday night between 6-8. RAMONA
