Hi there! I'll be sharing some of my favourite things this week.  Shall i start with home?

A few shots from around the Mornington Peninsula. I like it here! Such a place offers many a thing to be found. One of my favourite past times happens to searching for and collecting things from nature. How handy my dashboard has been in this pursuit!

Favourite #2 - GLASS! - Glass has enabled me to count searching and collection as part of my practice: I'm really glad to have stumbled upon such a material! I'm excited about the way it can be used as a solution – to preserve and display various findings.

Some of Sarah's folio pieces from last year when she majored in Glass at Monash Uni.

A few of the Mornington Peninsula's beaches get involved...

The integration of Sarah's surrounds into her work- so breathtaking!

And OH! Another of my favourite things: moths. (and maybe butterflies). Oh and feathers!!

(Thank you Robbie Warden for your photography skills here!)

Collaborating with nature = happy making.

One final favourite for today - flesh and blood !

My Mother, Jane - most encouraging and quite the fine artist.

Sister, Kim - a bit nerdy but has mad illustration skills.

OK! Perhaps this is enough for now. Tomorrow I'm going to talk about flameworking.
And! Nature.
