This Little Teapot

So since the opening is tonight I can finally show you my teapot!!!

When I got my teapot, actually before it had even arrived, I was thinking of ideas.  It wasn't until we were at Ben's Mum's place while intently starring at her chicken teapot that I noticed it looked like a face and realised that would make for one hell of a cute teapot!

Around the same time, I was playing with some moth paintings and I decided to incorporate a bit of a moth theme, since I love moths!!

So there you go :)
I was also very fortunate to be contacted the other week for an interview which you can read here.  I had a quick skim cause it still feels strange to re-read my words :P

Anyway hopefully you are currently at the opening, if you're in Sydney, and if you missed the opening, no worries it runs until Sunday 1st of May at Paper Plane Gallery, 727 Darling Street, Rozelle!

Alright I'm off to make gnocci my first attempt, I'll let you guys know how it goes :P
