Grey Gum

December 23, 2013



The Grey Gums on the Woodford Fstival Site are looking splendid in their new orange bark.  Many Eucalypts shed their bark annually, often revealing quite a different appearance to the older bark, which in this case is grey if you are wondering why such a colourful tree would be called a Grey Gum.


four weeks already

September 1, 2011

Today marks the four week mark, here at the JB Blunk residency, and I’m feeling very much settled in.  Not going to write a long post here today, but I’ve just posted some photos of work in progress to the residency blog here.  I’ll be posting to the residency blog as well as here over the next month.  Be sure to check out the older posts as well where you will see images of previous artists work as well as photos of the house and environs.

This is the wood workshop next to the studio.  On the table is a series of slices of thick pine bark, being prepared for printing from.

Not technically a basket I guess, since it is really just a cylinder with no base.  All the same it still sits in my garden under the big Eucalypt that sheds this bark in the summer.  The bark is only pliable to manipulate like this after several days rain.

rain !

This is the view out an upstairs window today.  It has been raining the last couple of days, best rain for months.  The gun trees have been shedding bark recently and the colour looks great in the wet.
