Channelling 'The Block' aspirations
It's getting to that time of year where Christmas isn't too far away and I'm aiming to avoid any frantic last-minute gift shopping and crowds.

Luckily, there's a handmade Japanese Pottery Sale that happens once a year to tick off the list of gifts to purchase.

New lease of life with Kitsugi

Grab that pen or iPhone and write in your diaries, Saturday 9th Nov, Sunday 10th Nov from 10am - 5pm and Monday 11th Nov from 10am - 1pm at Ceramic Studio En, 28 Elizabeth Street, Artarmon. It's so close to Artarmon Station that you could haul your buys on the train home with you so there is no excuse to come by.

Be the envy of your neighbours and friends as you style your home like a professional interior decorator. I'll be channelling my 'The Block' aspirations with amazing custom made table wear and have my friends' guessing if they're dining at Freds'. Billy Kwong, Sushi-e or Koi Dessert Bar as ceramic artist Emi Tanaka's works are found at these restaurants.

Perhaps, I'll start dabbling in food photography as her ceramic works have graced the pages of Gourmet Traveller, Good Food magazine, Delicious magazines to just name a few. I'm planning my next dinner party with wow factor, especially with the hand moulds, hand thrown pieces made by Emi and her students.

Emi's philosophy is to "provide simple art and beauty in everyday life". She creates pottery for everyday use, use simple forms to keep in with functionality rather than display.

The workmanship that goes into the handcrafted Japanese pottery is evident as each piece has its own character. Due to the handmade nature of the ceramics, each piece of pottery on sale has a story. Emi hopes that you enjoy the beauty of handmade pottery that will mature with you in everyday use.

And you'll be happy to know that there is no such things as waste as broken ceramics are given a new lease of life by a 5000-year-old Japanese practice that highlights the breaks known as kintsugi.

Kintsugi means golden repair using a liquid gold or silver to bring together the pieces of broken pottery giving it a new lease of life with the randomness of the pattern.
