Hermannsburg Potters

Love these pots from the Hermannsburg Potters from the Northern Territory of Australia. 
I posted this on my Facebook page and had a huge response of comments and shares. Ain't the Internet grand? I've found so many inspiring artists and art.

I've had the idea to do a series based on the constellations. Pegasus star chart takes center stage today. This is the under-glaze, it will get much brighter after the glaze firing!
