Rhonda and Mark enjoyed their visit to the show, and had a nice chat with Ruth Arnison, Olveston's poet in residence!
From the photos they took, I can imagine that R and M had fun walking around the gravel paths, and peeping at Olveston from all angles!
And the glass house makes you think that you are in the tropics, even though it is the middle of winter in Dunedin!
The basement room is an interesting place for an exhibition. The brick pillars and the many corners probably make for challenges with light, but they do provide places where individual works can be showcased. I like the fact that you cannot see all the work at once from one place, and you have to move around the room and make discoveries.
And here are some of mine... I enjoyed seeing my pots in different surroundings from the studio. The deep window ledges, white window frames, and the "wobbly" panes of glass made a good setting for the pots. It was easier to imagine the pots in someone's home.
These two pots of mine have crystalline glazes that have had an extra firing in a reduction atmosphere, which changed them from being green to red, pink and grey!
Laura has been enjoying using coloured pencils lately. This is the picture that she did for the Olveston exhibition, it is called "A mask for a Poet In Residence", Laura has used ink and coloured pencils for this. There are many references in the picture to Olveston, and to the Poet in Residence! I wonder if you can discover some of them?
