Just when I thought it was safe to relax , I came home to the pulsating vibe of the 'Australian Ceramics Triennale'. And as it was taking place just down the road from me at my old college (NAS), I couldnt find a reason not to go. I listened and watched, albeit a little brain dead, but it was worth hanging around for the Marek Cecula and Takashi Yasuda words of wisdom - "Design is Dead" (ie: as we know it). And of course I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Penny Byrne's pieces in the flesh. She is probably one of my fav ceramic artists at the mo. http://www.eatfrenchbread.com/penny-byrne/ . Thanks Penny.
