"when you walk in the garden..."

Some shows just slip by. I wondered what Fiona Hiscock was up to; thought she may have slipped off the ceramic perch like so many others. But ,lo and behold she had a beautiful looking  show earlier this year at Beaver Gallery in Canberra. 
Does the world need any more pots with flowers on ? Well, yes in this case. There is a kind of soft union between the squeezed clay surface and the almost botanically rendered flora. These pieces are made in the spirit of the slow food movement. If you are lucky there may still be something in the gallery's stock room.
