Last Friday a delightful couple flew up from Sydney to spend 24 hours with us at our home in the Australian bush. The focus of the visit was an interview by the charming Carla, freelance journalist and her husband James, a professional photographer. This interview will eventually be featured in Green Living Magazine, a glossy magazine with an environmental and sustainable living focus. Although I have not actually blogged about this aspect of our life, it is a large focus of our life and daily living. We are 100% solar, grow at least 50% of our food, have a composting toilet (no water/no flush) and have a pesticide free 50 acres that we collectively call “Hazelwild Retreat”.
I had a sneak read of the article, which Carla has carefully sprinkled bits Renee Blackwell Design in the text as well….
Not sure when it’s due to hit the newsstands, but will keep you posted!

I have wanted to write about my lovely friend Shannon Garson for some time now. After visiting her new studio yesterday, I came home determined to share this inspiring, talented and dedicated ceramic potter with the whole of the world…or at least those in the blog world!
By the way…
I have a personal collection of her work-bowls, jugs, pitchers and small cups, which features beautiful and delicate butterflies. I add a new piece each year, when I visit her annual home/studio exhibition. My collection sits as a group on the top of my refrigerator, where I see and admire them each and every day.
The one word that defines every piece
I encourage you to visit her website http://shannongarson.com/
which features much more about her work, her inspiration and the life of this talented porcelain potter and artist.
