Deloraine - the lovely

TASMANIA .... what a wonderful place we live in
we know it ...lets stop often, for a moment, to consider
 here, i see, the light changes - in seconds
sunset on my way to table tennis- love that light

longevity

for me, there are many considerations in a 'successful' piece
an important consideration is that artworks stand the test of time
not only in longevity, structurally sound use of materials and substrates
but in the piece looking as fresh today as it did when it was created, years ago

i get such a kick from THAT feeling
and for me, this pot does that

its made of mosaics from my own personal crockery collection 
(including teapot spout) and ceramic tiles on a handbuilt pot (not by me)

this pot stands that test of time - in pleasure and stability
its about 10 years old and nothing has 'moved'
and, like me, the new fern loves it
