Today I ran a class called 'Botanical Impressions' at the Canberra Glassworks. With a selection of blooms and foliage we pressed the plants into clay. We started with a quick plaster cast and moved on to make an open faced mould that would be cast in glass later in the...

I do read a lot of e books but I love the tactile pleasure of paper. I think it was the gorgeous covers looking so pretty in my Instagram feed bolstered by glowing comments by various reviewers that prompted me to buy both books on a flying visit to Sydney. I found...

I'm really delighted to be finalist for the Hidden Rookwood films exhibition. As part of the Hidden sculpture walk at Rookwood Cemetery there will be a loop of short films showing in the American War Pavilion.

Have you heard of the 'Post Exhibition Blues'?

Well I'm not sure I totally avoided them (TBH I had a few weeks of "ugh!" and "meh!") but did you even know that the Post Exhibition Blues was a thing?

You kind of expect to feel really good after a big project, thinking ab...
