Arts, culture, crazy heads and tea....

...what a dynamite combination.  Alison Bjorkman's Tea Party at the Ingham Centre this past Tuesday evening was a delight for all the senses.

With an amazing array of teapots created these past months in a new range of glazes and styles,

there was one,

 after another 

after another to lift and test.  Best of all, they were all gorgeous.

It was another chance, too, to check out the Crazy Head show.  This Day of the Dead head is Andrea's homage to the Mexican celebration.

I very much enjoyed this dual brain head from Brandy Hunt.

And I can see that Alison has a darker side to her - caught me unaware!

This 'nightlight' really makes me smile - can you imagine a child waking up to this?!

These heads and more (I managed to miss a couple -  and you can check out my Roadside Crosses entry here) will be auctioned at WineArt on Friday, May 30 this year.  You will definitely want to be there to bid on your favourite, taste some terrific wines and support the Rotary.
