Pickle on someone your own size

Hi, here's a new ceramic piece called "I'm not a picky eater, but I'm also not a pickle eater".
This work is on display until the end of the week in the exhibition 'CERAMICS (now)', curated by Mark Hetherington at the Adelaide Perry gallery in Sydney.

In other news, if you're free tomorrow evening (Thursday September 27) come join a table at this trivia night fundraiser, from 7pm at the Handsome Her cafe on Sydney Road in Brunswick. Shout out to my housemate Jodie for being one of the organisers of the event.
All funds raised on the night go towards the upcoming Reclaim the Night event. For more info here's a link to the event website

As well as trivia there's also a silent auction on the night, here's a ceramic sculpture I donated of a 
Rainbow Paddlepop

And speaking of fundraiser news, here's a wonderful photo I was sent by Lynda, taken with my ceramic Bitten Bubble'O Bill hanging in their kitchen after she scored it at last weeks RMIT fundraiser exhibition. 

Loved seeing this photo and was so happy to see that Bubble'O has hit the jackpot in finding a good home.

Speaking of hitting the jackpot, in football news, you might not have heard that the Collingwood Magpies are in the grand final this Saturday. I'm so excited for the game I've snuck in early to get a good seat.
In the meantime though thanks heaps for reading. Hope you're having a nice week. And just incase the Collingwood players need a little more inspiration to score some goals, here's a quick vid I just recorded of me in the backyard scoring one in the netball ring.

And no, this video definitely didn't take a million attempts, I don't know what you're talking about.

Who wants to be a Bubble'O Billionare?

Hi, here's a set of new ceramic sculptures called "My ideal Friday Night in", consisting of a banana Big M, a supermarket chocolate cake and Missy Higgins first album.
These works will be on display in a group show called Ceramics (now), curated by Mark Hetherington, opening tomorrow night at the Adelaide Perry gallery in Sydney. If you're in the area come say hello! 

In other news, this Thursday (September 20) the RMIT 3rd year artists are having a fundraiser exhibition. I donated this ceramic sculpture that I made back when I was at art school of a bitten Bubble'O Bill.

100% of the money raised go towards the RMIT's upcoming Grad Show exhibition. If you're around Melbourne this Thursday evening come have a drink and pick up a bargain, (or if you're feeling generous, feel free to spend a bubble'o billion dollars!)

In other news, the travelling exhibition I'm in Self Made: Artist books and zines, first shown last year at the State Library of Victoria, has just opened at the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery.

Also in South Australia, the group exhibition 'Word' is still on until October 13 at Hugo Michell gallery.
