on my Mantel / getting to the end now . . .
Made in the 1980s, Australian Pottery by Robert Matheson of Melbourne.
We have several pieces by him, his work with cut out shapes was very popular, this was from one of his first exhibitions on the Mornington Peninsula.
I call it a vase but it's really just an ornament, as it is cut away the entire length to showcase the gum leaves and gumnuts.
So that is it for now from my mantelpiece. I'll like up as always with fortune favours the thrifty
And this will be my last post for a week or so, off to catch up with family and friends, and away from the computer ~~ be back soon with more exciting things (who knows, may even buy something new for the mantelpiece)
