to market.. to market...

 After such a whirl wind tour of 'the States' last month it's time to refocus on my work and getting it around town successfully.. so yesterday I embarked on a little marketing day.. Loaded up with some new additions for the Urban Cow Studio I headed into town dropping off a tea set for a photo shoot for 'Attitude magazine' a local free mag all about style in town.... After leaving some new wares including the red stripes dippy bowls and some wee raku pots I headed off to wander around town and look for prospective places to approach for my work..
Followed by a trip to central market and on a cheese hunt!!! Found some great cheeses and happy with that  off to the chinese supermarket to stock up on spices for cook ups :)) mmmm what a great shop they even had the lil cooking pots that we ate from in the vietnamese restaurant with ron!! such a cool flash back to that dinner and so yummy must write that meal down and have a go at making it, it was awesome...

 

Then off to the Terrace where Graham is holding an interiors expo this month, so exciting I dropped in some of my larger wall tiles before going away and luckily he loves them as do I some of the gorgeous new old sanded back teak furniture they have in at the mo mmmmmm... So that's next wednesday the opening and I'm hoping to make it for that it will be great to get some feedback on these pieces as they look great with the rustic furniture...

 

So into the studio today....I'm inspired to get sorted out and get making, I had a chat with my electrician last night about a prospective electric kiln hook up and what thats going to take and hmmm what do i need to sell to get one :P and a great visit from my bud kevin too looking at extending my gas kiln vertically...

yep a good day....
