reeeeeeeview and it's good!

Melbourne Jeweller has reviewed our show - Work Hardened

http://melbournejeweller.wordpress.com/2011/11/26/work-hardened-spill-art-space/

All praise and goodness. Enough to make a lady blush.

I do have to agree that i felt the stand out piece was Danica Moorcrofts to her vessel - 'Fritzel Baby Bowl'
Also Elise Sheehan 'Little White Lies' and Chris Massey's 'A Giving Ring' round out the top 3. So without further ado I call it. Year over and Holidays are HERE!

it is irish season.

GO HERE AND TRY YOUR LUCK...

Caz Guiney has hit the jackpot again and is really in tune with getting the public involved in her projects this is no different. I recieved an email from her last week with details of the project and the blog site. I have put my hand up to get a charm-id kit.... Fingers crossed the mail man delivers. I am interested to see the momentum this project will create - as a collective it will be nice to see what may come...

stay tuned.

it WAS like a fever


What an apt name.
