Only six sleeps to go!!!

The amazing Frances Stachl "Smarties" necklace has gone!!

BUT...we now have a very summery, multi-stone Barry Clarke necklace in the gallery. Each of these necklaces is unique...the last one on show at Avid was snapped up by a collector and has now arrived at its new home in New York.

Smarties all round

This great necklace arrived yesterday from Frances Stachl.  (Will the lucky wearer have to stay out of the sun this summer?)

Dorothy's road trip to Auckland was a raging success...

Dorothy made a road trip to Auckland last week, visiting many of our artists and coming back to AVID with loads of FABULOUS new work!

We have Christine Cathie's stunning, olive Mobius Strip back after being exhibited in The Objectives Art Awards at Mangere Arts Centre, Auckland; also Merilyn Wiseman's new Echo forms, Christine Thacker's striped vases, a new Emily Siddell glass and ceramic lei and Stephen Bradbourne's new murrine bowls in a range of sugary, soft colours.

Bronwynne Cornish's charming Mr and Mrs Lapin are just waiting to greet you as you pop into AVID before Chrtistmas!

Sun sets glass on fire

This afternoon  the sun reflected in to the gallery, setting on fire the Layla Walter bowls, and the David Murray Hunter and Gatherer in the window...   (the car is not for sale...)
