If anyone is in Byron Bay at the end of February Jeff Raglus and I have a show on in a great looking gallery space called SEA run by surfboard shaper Dain Thomas. Surfboard shaping is a dying craft having been largely co-opted by mass production in Thailand and more recently China. There are interesting parallels inherent in the crafts of surfboard-making and ceramics and the dilemnas being faced by them. Anyway here is one of Jeff's paintings and some tiles fresh out of the kiln. It is nice to scratch into the clay surface again rather than paint onto it.
