Tanks Art Market

April 28, 2014

What a beautiful day at the Tanks Art Market today- launched marika ceramics to a wonderful reception to my work- a few details to consider for next month .
So many pieces found new homes 🙂 – a little daunting at first as a “newbie” to the scene of market selling- a few new ideas passed onto me and an invitation from an independent funky gallery to sell from 🙂
The sun shone all day- phew! Was a little concerned from rain of past few days ….
I met beautiful families , travellers, and awesome locals praising and appreciating my work

Up till 3 am with anxious thoughts – power napped till 6am and off to markets by 7.30 am queue…
Surrounded by incredible greenery, beautiful market stall holders and wonderful friends who stopped in to lend their support and coffee 😉 –

Thank you Tim – you rock
I had one of the most memorable days of my life – pursuing my passion for ceramics and working towards establishing my wares towards a household name – a long wondrous road ahead.
I will be making contact with the Cairns Regional gallery who contacted me via my blog to sell work on consignment- my lovely porcelain wares will find new homes 🙂

My porcelain jewellery was a hit 🙂 and many pieces are now being lovingly adorned on some new clients – I always aimed at creating art work that could be accessible to every person. A funky pair of earrings was the perfect concept for our many visiting tourists to Cairns.
