We are a home based arts business based in beautiful northern Tasmania, just outside the small but very creative town of Deloraine. Jacque is an artist who specialises in sculpting, especially garden art figures. When not doing clay work, Jacque paints and quilts. John sells books and CDs, especially music by Tasmanian musicians, who, despite the fact that we have a recording studio in town, are too modest to make CDs. We can be found at the Deloraine market on the first Saturday of each month, starting in September. We are exploring other appropriate markets and venues. In the fullness of time we will be setting up workshops etc. so keep an eye on our blogspot for these and other ventures. Thank you for taking the time to look at this, and do contact us should you see anything you like, or if you should want any art materials.

Woodfire Tasmania 2011

Jacque here!  We had a huge international clay event here in Deloraine recently.  Neil Hoffman, local potter, organised the most wonderful 3 day event.  We had exhibitions in all of the galleries in town (we enjoyed having the works of Michael Steffan here at Bohemian Arts), presentations and demonstrations by international and national experts in ceramics and woodfiring, and a fun day out on location at Neil's pottery in Reedy Marsh for the 'Woodfire Challenge'.  Teams had to dig clay, make pieces, build a kiln, fire their pieces, cook food on the kiln and then serve it up on the vessel they'd made.  Well done to Neil and team for bringing such a world class event to town.  The woodfiring continues for me this coming Sunday when we're building kilns and firing at Liffey.  More of that next week!
