Great job on the sculpture.. last days of the exhibition

A big thank you to those who came along today and helped to colour our sculpture pieces...


These will be taken to our kilns at Cronulla for firing and any extra preparation.

When they are fired  and constructed we hope they will be placed in a local Native Plants garden.
We await permission from our local council.

The 49th National Pottery Competition will be on display in the Gallery for just a few more days...

If you purchased a piece please come along on Wednesday to collect it.
