Finding inspiration on the other side of the world

Going to make up for my radio silence since July with a bumper post from my recent trip to Australia. This was for a beautiful beachside family wedding with my sister, but we also snuck in a decent amount of gallery-ing.

The first point of call was in Sydney, or between Bondi and Tamarama Beach, at their annual Sculpture by the Sea:

Also picked up this early Christmas card for myself in a vintage shop. It's by Luka Va.

At the other end of our trip, we chanced upon the 2018 Melbourne Ceramics Market, then a day later, visited the c3 contemporary art space at Abbotsford Convent. This was where we found these thorny ombre delights by Adam Stone:
