Cone 11 and Rona Green - Mercator Studio open day

Rona Green

Cone 11 ceramic studio

Here are some photos of the studio open day, held in late april, to celebrate the recent refurbishment of the Mercator Studios at the Abbotsford Convent. For those with a historical interest the site used to house the servant laundry quarters for the convent.
The renovation is a great initiative that received a significant injection of funding from the Sidney Myer foundation in conjunction with the Abbotsford Convent. There are 11 studio residents in total, including the very talented glass artist Philip Stokes and lighting designer Volker Haug.
