After hours and hours of meticulous sanding, some stylish canvass choices and some precision tacking...
... all that's missing is a cruise ship deck, one of those chicks in the high-waisted, long bottomed, gold bikini, holding a coconut and sipping, with scarlet lips, on a cocktail.
All sleek with there canvass pin-stripes and perfectly spaced brass tacks and golden Danish Oiled teak... ooo, fancy. We were so sad to hand these back, Loretta had to prise them out of our sweaty hands. A couple of weeks later we found two on eBay with their original umbrellas (to keep the sun off the chick in the bikini), so we'll keep you posted on their progress.
Those beautiful wood-fired plant pots there are from Virginia Jones another of my favourite ceramic artists. Her work is currently available at artisan in Brisbane and Object gallery in Sydney.
