This relaxed garden-party show and sale of glass and ceramics, folk-art, sculpture, painting and mixed media will take place in the Oaklands, Victoria front garden of glass-blower Lisa Samphire.
The "seven artists" in this group are fire and heat loving friends Glassblower Lisa Samphire, Jo Ludwig (warm glass) and Peggy Brackett (dichroic glass jewellery) of KilnArt Glass, Sid Samphire (stoneware sculpture) and Adele Samphire (stoneware domestic pottery) of Samphire Pottery, Cindy Gibson of Cindy Gibson Ceramics (porcelain garden art) and Hermann Edler, maker of whimsical wood folk art.
We have invited two friends to join us for this spring show: Karina Kalvaitis and Jennifer McIntyre.
Karina makes felt and mixed media sculptures combining attributes of different animals to make odd and loveable creatures that are familiar yet strange. In her greeting card line Karina makes playfully fanciful watercolour paintings of animals interacting in unexpected ways.
Jennifer's acrylic paintings are rich with lively colour and pattern. She enjoys painting the variety of flowers, birds and objects in compositions she invents.
We extend a warm welcome to all! Drop by to say hello, view our latest work and perhaps go home with a new treasure. All artists will be in attendance.
