OCTOBER MEETING

The guest speaker at our October meeting was the French born florist and potter Mr Jean-Noel Cuzzucoli, who in addition to making ceramics, also teaches pottery at his shop-front in the small town of Monbulk. At the meeting he told us that he was the third generation of his family to work as a florist. He said he developed an interest in ceramics many years ago as a way to provide more interesting vessels for clients of his floristry business. Below is a photo of some of the examples of his work he brought to the meeting.


The ikebana demonstrator this month was Lucy Papas who explained how she had created a tall vessel from a length of bamboo by cutting a narrow section out of its length. 



Lucy first created a simple naturalistic arrangement in the vessel...


...and then a modern arrangement in the same vessel.


Members at the meeting also displayed their own arrangements.
