Here is a preview of some new figurines that will make their debut at Magnolia Square.
The event runs from the 22nd to 24th of November at the Malvern Town Hall. It is a roomier venue than past fairs so there will be lots to of new things to see. Barbara and I did it together last time so we could take turns shopping and minding the stand.
Check out their website for opening times and a detailed list of traders.

This figurine, by Barbara van Oost, is available from Birds Gallery in Melbourne. They also stock a large selection of our new jewellery.
If you are near Kew its worth checking the beautiful works by a select group of local and international artists that they represent.
All our pebble necklaces are one offs. Firstly we stain, mold and burnish the porcelain beads.
Then, after firing, we lay all the beads on our work bench and piece together necklaces.
It always takes a couple of goes but we know immediately when we have it.

These pots make me think of mushrooms pushing their heads up through the earth.
Like mushrooms they look their best in small clusters.
All these pots were burnished just before they dried which makes them feel so smooth to touch.

I am really happy with how these things turned out.
Not sure what they are, but they make me happy.
I've noticed people like rearranging them into different patterns, but this is how I like them to sit.
Barbara totally disagrees.
Did I mention they are only about 7cms tall.
We have been making these collars for a while now. The weather is warming up so I am rather missing wearing mine.
They are lined with felt so they will keep you very warm.
The buttons are made of porcelain.
Collars can be purchased at Craft Victoria or The Rose st Artists Market.
If you are nowhere near Melbourne and want one we can post to far-away places.
