It’s that time of the year again when we buy to say “thank you” or “I love you” and sometimes “bloody hell, you again”. Whether you’re buying for loved or not-so-loved ones it can be stressful and soul destroying shopping in a mall or department store.
This year make a change and support local artisans and artists. Tonight is the opening of Kerrie Lowe’s Christmas 2013 show. I went in last week to drop off my grungy little beauties and I can attest to the gallery being full to the brim with handmade, unique, contemporary ceramic art and functional ware. It’s on until 24 December so don’t worry if you can’t make it on opening night. My darling and I will be there tonight for anyone who wants to come along and say hi.

For something more intimate ‘Pop Up Clay’ is a group of 8 friends (including me) who have come together in a 3 day only pop up shop in Surry Hills. Opening night is Friday, 6 December and the shop will trade till Sunday, 8 December. There is a cornucopia of ceramic treasures to be found from jewellery to tableware to art pieces. Let this talented bunch of folk help you find something to wow family and friends
At both venues there will be a chance to meet the artists and artisans, support their creative hardwork and shop with a drink in hand. How civilised – beat that Westfield!!
