It’s another beautiful day on the Surf Coast: Day 2 of the Studio Pop up sale, with Renée Treml. @reneetreml

Lots of original prints, decorations, illustrations, vases, bowls, and bargain clearance ceramic pieces. Time to clear the shelves in preparation for moving to my new studio in January.
And we have nibbles to help those hunger urges while browsing.

Only a few more days of ‘The River’ exhibition at Anglesea Art Space: finishes on Sunday 11th December: stoked that my pieces resonated with people and most will go to new homes. Only 4 pieces left. Get in quick if you would like a piece.

My first live video in my studio, please be kind.
Big thanks to Anne, Lee, Wendy and Sally for demonstrating their growing pottery skills.
We are coming towards the end of the Spring Term and it’s one of the last classes in my temporary studio before I move into the bright new studio in the new year. More videos to come of the new studio space.
If you would like to go on my wait list for 2023 classes, send me a message or DM.

Pop this into your Christmas gift buying diary now! Shop local this year for unique, bespoke, handmade, cards and original creations; and support your local artists.

Renée and I are teaming up to bring you a Holiday Pop-up Studio Sale:

Renée @reneetreml will be unveiling beautiful new illustrations and prints, cards and decorations.
And I will be doing a ceramic studio clearance, before I move into a beautiful, new sun filled studio over the summer break. So I am keen to pass one off bespoke samples, seconds and previous series of work at cheap cheap prices: (saves me from having to pack and move it), as well as showcasing brand new pieces, that will be hot out of the kiln.

The Pop up Studio Sale will be at Renée’s sunny studio:
14 Lowtide Drive, Torquay: just off Horseshoe Bend Rd: follow the purple flags and look out for the signs.

Over 3 big days: Fri 9th /Sat 10th and Sunday 11th of December.

Come and join us on the Friday anytime between 1pm and 7pm for an opening day glass of bubbly and nibbles.
Or anytime on Saturday or Sunday between 10am to 4pm.

Hope to see you there.

Powering our cities...Karen Steenbergen grew up in LaTrobe Valley where the cooling towers of Loy Yang Power Station rise up out of the pastoral land. The iconic curves of these towers have been taken in their positive and negative forms. The texture and colour on the outside of the work represent the gum trees and farm houses nearby.

Open today until 4pm.

A recent Residency in Roskilde, Denmark gave Karen Steenbergen inspiration observing the mix of contemporary and historic architecture, rooflines and the prevalence of green hedge fences. This was captured in the 'Urban- Europa' Series of vessels made of German Black Clay & White Stoneware, textured using Danish tree bark, sourced from a forest area, close to the oldest living tree in Northern Europe, over 1000 years old.

Exhibition open for 2 more weekends, til September 25th. Gallery open Friday/Saturday/Sundays. Or by appointment.

Very excited to be part of this exhibition which opens today. A group exhibition with the talented Kirsty from @yumdesignceramics and Ann from @clayann2
At the @thehiveoceangrove gallery in Ocean Grove

‘Built’

‘A group exhibition of ceramics, exploring thoughtful urban development, inspirational design and its interaction with the natural environment’.

Very excited to be exhibiting 2 series of work. Urban Loy Yang and Urban Europa.
Urban Europa was created during a recent residency at Gulddysse Kulturgard near Roskilde in Denmark. The work was inspired by the contemporary and historic architecture of Denmark and Germany, letting the black and white German stoneware clay speak for itself on the outside and just a clear glaze on the inside.

Meet the artists/official opening on Saturday 10th September between 2-4pm.
Time to emerge from our winter hibernation and embrace spring feels.
Would love to see you at the opening. #ceramics #madeindenmark #madeintorquay #ceramic #clay #kunst #supportlocsl #surfcoastcreatives
