Shown are two pieces by Perth based artist Gloria Paxman. Titled 'The Old Tree' the tile shown above depicts an intricately twisting tree created using various texture and techniques which sit upon a background of striped, coloured lustre. This beautiful piece was one of the best exhibits at the 2019 WA Guild of China Painters exhibition. The piece shown at right is from the Guild's 'Collectables' and celebrates the Broome WA Shinju Matsuri festival.
Shown are two pieces by Penny. Above a delightful wall plaque titled 'Town.' The town buildings are created from intricately hand painted glass pieces. The second piece, below, is a dish painted with bolts of cloth. Two beautifully painted pieces by this innovative artist!
