These vessels from my Casablanca range are amongst a variety of my work available to purchase from the @open_room_ either in store (just near Chadstone if you are going there- or maybe just bypass going to Chaddy & go to Open Room👍🏻) or online at

To all the gorgeous people who bought Coffee bowls, your orders will be dispatched on Monday!!
To those of you who missed out on this round, I am hoping a new batch will be coming next month.


I'm SUPER excited to read this book. 'The Secret Lives of Colour' by @kassiastclair
Long time followers will already know I am a lifelong lover of colour & I just LOVE the concept of this book!! 75 colours are explored in terms of their relationships with history, politics, art, war and human civilisation.

I spy a trio of my Burnt Umber Ceramic vessels up on the shelf in this gorgeous luxe Living room styled by @heathernetteking for this weeks Home edition of @theweeklyreview.
You can find these vessels & more of my work at @open_room_ online & instore.

This Salad bowl & other various vessels will end up at the @open_room_
They still require a couple of firings & glazing.
Kiln science is an amazing thing. This clay at bone dry stage (stage these vessels are at after being thrown & air dried) is still quite dark. After the initial Bisque fire (1000C) the clay appears a sort of gentle smoked trout pink tone. But after the final Glaze firing (1280c) this clay will be a light beige with gorgeous speckled tones.
It never stops being exciting seeing the transition from beginning to end.

Works in progress.
