It is Brisbane's springtime. Coming into bloom, into it’s season of change, growth, freshness, and beauty abound.
Boundaries are being broken; people are doing, and not just talking. Brisbane is losing its reputation as a country town, and coming forth with new and exciting proposals, beautiful products, joy and playfulness and talent to take on the world. We are resourceful, hopeful, excited, about the future of our city. What remains now is camaraderie between those who have not chosen other lands. Community is strong. The greener pasture is right here for those who will carve the new path that leads there.

Susan Simonini (Ceramics)
Susan is a talented ceramicist based on the Gold Coast, her work is earthy and beautiful, and we love her eclectic style.
“Most of my pieces develop organically with just a loose idea of a shape or design in mind. I like to use minimal equipment and prefer to hand roll the clay, rather than mechanical methods such a slab rolling and extruding. I allow the process itself to determine the end product, whether it be a piece of art or a functional object.” susansimonini.com.au
