human/nature ( recycled hardwood, hand carved, gold leaf, varnish) amazing new work by BRITTA STENMANNS

On a most basic level I aim to express through my woodcarvings social and environmental view points. The sculptures evolve during a slow process of hand carving the wood; allowing me enough time to rethink and reorganise my approach. Its's a meditative undertaking.
The woodcarvings can be placed in any space, small or large. They create a unique ambience and people often develop a special affinity for these works

One of our very talented artist!

Hello,
I would like to thank everyone who came out to attend my demonstration this past weekend. Great group and wonderful conversations.

I am looking to begin small group lessons. Three people maximum to allow for the number of wheels at the Bega Valley Potter's Studio, and to maintain personally tailored instruction. If you are interested in making things from clay and need a helping hand getting started, or if you have a project in mind and want a bit of advice, I have experience teaching all levels of makers.

There are already several people who have expressed interest. Groups will be formed based on time and availability. Or if you have a group of three, I am happy to figure out a schedule that works for everyone. Classes will run for one hour and cost $20 per person.

If you are interested don't hesitate to get in touch...

So I was trying to pretending that things are back to normal - but then we got evacuated again! So round two, some little treasures by @sarahmurray_ceramics you can’t go wrong with a pattern like this and a bit of gingham.

I there are lot of people who feel like this!

I wish I could say something else but it seems impossible to imagine OK right now. Being stuck in the middle of 3 fire zones for a month now, surrounded by smoke, ash and debris falling from the sky and escalated risk on days like yesterday and then again tomorrow. Learning that friends have lost most of their property, nearly all their possessions and the lives of the dear native animals they have cared for and helped through this chaos, I am not OK. Knowing that over 1 billion animals have lost their lives to this awful situation makes my heart ache. Reading that millions of hectares of forests have burned hurts my very being, my soul aches so badly. I feel helpless. I am struggling to make sense of all of this in my own head, where do I begin? How do I breathe a sigh of relief that my house is safe again when tomorrow may be different, when others lost their homes today? How do I support 3 children through this while giving their curious minds enough information to make the questions stop without scaring them so badly they will be traumatized for years to come. This is out of control, the thoughts in my head, the pain in my heart, the fires that threaten communities just 15km down the road and tonight I don’t know what step to take. and how dare I feel like this when others have lost so much? We haven’t lost anything so why do I not feel relieved? Is it because we have all lost something in this, we’re losing our national identity, our natural surroundings, the fresh air we’ve always known, the pristine environment we’ve come to appreciate, the safety in our Australia. At what point can we push the environmental limit before it all turns to chaos, before we lose everything that we hold dear? Who do we hold accountable, how do we make them accountable and how do we enact change? We can’t go on like this, it is not OK. I will make it through all of this but I’m not sure at what point it will be OK again.
