'Down in the Valley'..............





Yesterday we had the official 'switch on' of the new Kanimbla Clay electric lights. It was so exciting to finally illuminate the valley lights, they look beautiful! This one is heading to Gallery 47 in Rylstone,NSW for the LAND show. The opening is next Saturday, 29th January 4-6pm, please contact me if you would like to come and need directions........KanimblaClay@live.com.au

'down in the valley' is handbuilt using Southern Ice Porcelain and Natural Iron Oxide. Approx.height...22cm.
All electric fittings have been fixed by a qualified electrician, thanks Jimmy!

New Year...Clean workshop....back on the wheel!





Firstly, a huge thank you to those of you who came to the Finders Keepers markets. Myself and Mrs Peterson Pottery had a great weekend in the big smoke. Photos will be up soon!

After a well earned festive break I'm back in the studio with hands in clay making more Valley and Leaf lights. Keep an eye out for the Valley teacup which will be going onto the Blue Caravan shop at the begining of February.
This year will see kanimbla Clay producing a range of beautiful carved lights along with larger 'Valley' pieces (all these new designs will have electric fittings).
Photos of the new shapes will be up by the end of the month,

Happy New year!x
