We met up with Rhonda and Mark at Koru Gallery in the early afternoon and set up the exhibition. The opening was for 5.30 in the evening, and it was a happy one, and we do appreciate our friends who faithfully turn out to these events. Openings are always a bit stressful for the artists who are showing their work, and a few familiar faces and encouraging smiles help a lot to bolster the self esteem!
Sadly, none of us managed to take photos of the opening. I think we were all too busy!
Rhonda and Mark made a brave attempt to take photos in the gallery the next day, but it was difficult in the limited light.
Here are some photos of some of the work that we have at the exhibition. Some are photos that I took in the studio before the exhibition, and there are a few that Rhonda and Mark supplied that they took in the gallery.

|Inside the vase were some lovely waterfalls and constellations of gold coloured iron crystals where splashes and runs of the crystalline glaze had modified the dark liner glaze.|

Here is a little section of photos that Rhonda and Mark kindly supplied. The light was difficult, but they do give an impression of the gallery and its location. The garments are all by Rhonda, and the clocks are by Mark.
