Intuition Guidance Cards

Those of you who already have the cards will know of their pretty much spot-on-every-time-spookily-uncanny accuracy (read some testimonials HERE – and please email me if you have a testimonial of your experience you’d like me to add)

Often they confirm something we already know but were doubting. That doubting bit happens to us all, in fact way too much. Only yesterday I was in big doubt about a lot of things, not least of all my sanity and intuition!

I went to see a local clairvoyant and it was just confirmation upon confirmation of what I had been doing, was doing or was about to do – all OK, on the right track, keep doing what you’re doing and NURTURE yourself more. That felt soooo uplifting I can’t tell you.

We have to learn to TRUST OURSELVES. And our brilliance and innate cleverness that we don’t even realise is there, lying waiting for us to wake and shake it up.
Having just experienced the lack of self trust fairly big time (I’m always so damned annoyingly positive!) I know how hard it can be to believe in our intuition but here’s the thing, our intuition is never ever wrong. So! If you’ve not yet worked with my Intuition Cards, you have the opportunity now. They really are a fast track to your internal store of answers.

If you knew you had a constant guide, there at call for your highest good and that never fails you, wouldn’t you want to learn how to get its wisdom every time you doubt?

That’s where the affirmation of the cards come in. They will help you cut through your doubts and bulldung connecting you with your inner wisdom, that intuition that resides within every one of us.

The Road to Sticciano – My Tuscan Story

The stunning olive tree lined road to Sticciano which I walked on many many occasions.

The Road to Sticciano – My Tuscan Story

About 20 odd years ago when I became fed up with the corporate jungle in Sydney, I took off for southern Spain to stay for a year…which turned into 15.  On a whim one day I heard about a woman who did pottery classes out in the campo (bush to us Aussies) and so I thought I’d give it a shot.  Little did I know that this would become a lifelong addiction!

The breathtaking view I had daily during my residency at Sticciano.

Since then I’ve worked out of many studios and had many tutors but it’s only been in the last 18 months that I’ve finally been able to build a dedicated workshop complete with wheel, kiln and everything else that goes with it.  The learning curve went from a gentle one to an exceedingly steep one.  All good, keeps the grey cells going – along with sleepless nights thinking of glazes and blending them and ‘what if’ on this or that clay body, etc.  You get the idea.

So I thought, I need to fast forward this a tad at my st(age) in life.  Enter Italy.  I won’t go into detail about how I ended up at Sticciano, a stunning Agri Turismo deep in the stunning Tuscan countryside because that’s another story on its own.  But end up there I did and for a wonderful 5 weeks during March/April 2017.

The ‘Sticciano Tuscan Collection’ of Japanese Tea Bowls you see now were created there and most lovingly carried by hand through Italy, Spain, Germany, Denmark and back here to Noosa.  Probably some of the most well-travelled Tea Bowls around!

Two of my favorite Tea Bowls with that gorgeous typical Tuscan backdrop.

These are totally unique, as indeed are most ceramic pieces anywhere, and I cannot replicate them due to may various reasons.  I can – and have begun – however, to recreate using some of the same principles since I returned home a month ago.

The ‘Sticciano Tuscan Collection’ were created from stoneware and fired in gas reduction and salt kilns.  They were painted first with coloured slip on the greenware (pre any firing) and then with glaze after the first bisque firing.  A second glaze firing resulted in what you see here.

You can use them for coffee, tea, nut bowls – whatever you like!  People collect these and in Europe and ceramic artists swap with each other.  My tutor, Terry Davis (a very accomplished UK potter living in Tuscany) has a cupboard full and when you go there for coffee, you get to choose which Teal Bowl you want.

Enjoy!
