( instigated by the fabulous Adrianna)
a few members of the Mud Colony
decided to pay a surprise visit to Everleigh Artisan Markets today.
The ACA had a group of stalls
and one of those stalls was run by the beautiful mud colony member,
Kathryn Mitchell, with her lovely hand painted ceramics.
Katy had come down from the Gold Coast
and Adrianna came up from Melbourne...
I think Katy was a little surprised ;)
Laughter and hugs all round :D
Many of us were meeting for the first time, face to face,
so our virtual Mud Colony relationships
have now started to became part of the real world.
I bought a few lovely pieces from the potter stalls
(seared tuna and salsa and an iced coffee)
Then off to find an old friend who I went to uni with from 1998 -1991
Gail Priest who was launching her latest LP
How wonderful to sit back in an interesting space
in a comfortable arm chair and be given a feast for the senses.
There were several sound artists over the evening
and each created interesting music
that affected me both emotionally and physically.
I say that it affected me physically because the sounds
seemed to get into the muscles of my body
and create physical waves and vibrations
causing an emotional response.....fascinating!
Now I can continue to enjoy that experience
while I am working in my studio.
