This is only a quick post to show off some snaps of my work in the new Gaffa Pop Up Shop at The Rocks, but I just also have to say, I've had the best weekend.  I'll save the full details for a later post or two, but in summary, it was an all-round awesome couple of days due to...

Meanwhile, up in Sydney town, the weekend marked the opening of the latest incarnation of the gaffa Pop-UP shop: "Gaffa Stockroom" as part of The Rocks Pop Up Project.  I am simply psyched to be featured in the Stockroom, alongside amazing work by ceramicist, Alice Rose and contemporary jeweller and object maker Shan Shan Mok.

Here's a few snaps I've just received from Gaffa.  All images by Lyrebird Photography.

The Rocks is one of my old Sydney stomping grounds, having worked in or near the area for several years and also spent many weekends there during a stint at The Rocks markets one summer.  I am so glad that the Harbour Foreshore Authority are finally realising the opportunity to make the most of the character-filled precinct rather than letting it squander away into a total tourist trap.  If you're in Sydney, I urge you to wander down and check out what's happening in the area as part of the project.

The gaffa Pop UP shop is located at 85 George St, The Rocks.  You can read more about the other exhibitions behing held by gaffa in the space here.

Hope you had a lovely weekend too!

Simply yours,
Phoebe
