3 flights of stairs or an elevator ride up is Gallery on Waymouth's newly renovated open air gallery garden. This is an amazing environment you must see next time you are in the city of Adelaide.
The artworks displayed are thematically that of freedom and relaxation and rely heavily on the symbolism of birds and feathers. Nearby is the living wall, sprouting mint, oregano and rosemary. Sprawling beneath it is a network of custom built benches branching across the floor space in diagonals.
These photos document some of the installation process of the artworks

Here's Bubsy all finished. After the structure was built with he was sponged down with a coat of ball clay. Slight variations to the colour were added with underglaze and the finished shading was completed with black iron oxide. He's also quite freckly due to a spattering of oxide flicked from the end of a brush.
Sleepy time for this owl chilling out in the forest. Another hand built sculpture made from Feeneys Buff Raku.
I made a couple more smaller bearcats last night and then moved on to painting the bigger ones that came out of the kiln today. Another firing and then an oxide. Finished product coming soon!
I've always loved the elements so you'll often see earth, fire, air and water arise as an influence in my sculptural work in particular.
Starting with this piece I am experimenting with a series of elemental spirit masks. They are made with a brace on the rear so they can hang on a wall.
