Sydney Tea Pot Show & Sydney Sketch Club

Sydney sketch club went to Tea Pot Show @ Inner City Clayworkers Gallery. *I belong to two sketch clubs : Urban Sketchers and Sydney Sketch ClubWow, I got stunned by so many unique pots from whimsical art work to very elegant tea pots. Sure, tea lovers and ceramic collectors will steam up for these fabulous ceramics. All the photos are by courtesy of Organiser, Jennifer. Enjoy them all.  

This is the gallery. Really a pretty small shop. Our sketchers are at the entrance in the sketch. Gallery Host Irene welcomed us. Happy surprise was to find that Irene was also a Sydney Sketch Club member! 

Oh, quirky and beautiful pots! We usually meet for 2.5 – 3 hours and then gather for a show’n’tell. I chose this humorous pot, a very sexy gentleman standing next to his wife (*a bit shame I ran out of time to sketch his wife). Very colourful, vivid and cheerful. Irene, Gallery Host said, "All this artist's work looks like her face!" and showed me the photos. Ohhhh! Interesting and yes, indeed, they all look like her. 

Can you believe all these are pots? You can use them for tea! 
A "practical use" is the only condition an artist must satisfy.
All pots are on sale.
The witchery of pots made us "Ohhh, ahhhh" or chuckle?! 
All sketchers created interesting drawings. 
We enjoyed sketching.
Group activities are very important for artists to make friends with others and for mutual help. The beauty of this club is "having lunch together." (*Come & go is all up to members. No obligation.) Regarding a social side, of course, chatting is fun and stress busting. Also, this is when we can discuss techniques and materials used – sketchbooks are often shared around. We'll get inspirations and tips. I should come to sketch more often.
We greatly appreciate the organiser Jennifer's hard work during the meeting. She takes lots of photos and later, will upload them at our club site. Furthermore, she encourages each attendance, negotiates event organisers and explores potential excursions. *I seriously believe we have to set a special thank-u day for Jennifer. 
BTW, I've begun to loose up architecture like my figures! Fun, not pain. I played with colours. This time, I did not have time to think twice, just worked on a building and moved onto a pot in the gallery. Mmmm... "strict time limit" worked a positive way? Yey, Sadami, keep up! This sketch club's very interesting events visiting may cure my dislike-of-architecture. 
Each member uses a very different watercolour kit. Interesting! 
Friends, do ye know? We'll go to a theatre next week! "Sketching Theatre -- "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Try" (musical comedy). Can you believe this? FREE!! (yes that says free) Entertainment of superb quality by the final year students of the Australian Institute of Music Theatre Faculty. What a wonderful opportunity! Again, it is Jennifer who has picked up such a fantastic event. 
The play is a satire of big business. The story follows the rise of a protagonist who uses a handbook called "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" to climb the corporate ladder from a lowly window washer to a high-powered executive.
We'll sketch the stage, setting, etc and of course, all of us want to know the theme...!!! Hehehehe, if I can find "how to", I'll share it with you??! That's what we want to know! 

Do you feel like joining us? Come and see the meet up page here! 
Special thanks for Jennifer and Clayworkers Gallery.
Friends, Happy Painting!!!
