July already, soon it will be spring. However, winter has its plusses like sitting in front of the fire at night knitting. This takes the form of scarves or cushion covers all hand knitted in pure wool. The woollen cushion covers are made up with linen backing and feather and down inners. The scarves are multiplying so I\'m thinking of having a sale on line.. 20 per cent off marked prices.
As well as knitting I\'m potting using the facilities at the Potters\' Society in Canberra. So far I have made beakers in stoneware and porcelain clay bodies, decorating the stoneware with red iron oxide and glazing with a white oribe glaze, which is slightly translucent a little like what we used to call rice pudding shino. The porcelain pieces have a clear glaze and fired to 1280d. As each batch is made and photographed I will put them on line so check under shop to see what is available.
The cushions at left are perfect to decorate your large sofa in front of the fire. I am making them from the traditional striped espradrille fabric which is good and sturdy and will last for ages. The inners are feather and down - perfect for an afternoon snooze on the sofa.
Leanne Percival is continuing to make the allhandmadegallery cups and bowls in porcelain with clear glaze.
They are very popular. Leanne also has her own range of domestic ware which we are stocking in the gallery. Go to shop to see what is available.

Shop on line. We will pack and post for $10 a parcel (does not apply to paintings or larger ceramic pieces). Email your order to email@example.com remembering to include your email address. Payment by direct deposit. It is that simple and quick. However, if you plan to visit the gallery..from Sydney take the Federal Highway to Canberra and after about 30 kms you will see the Collector turnoff. Looking forward to seeing you in the shed at Collector or posting your order. Helen Stephens
