The show is up! If you happen by Carlisle Street Balaclava, have a look in the window and then inside Hudson Clothes, 229 Carlisle St. I have some pears and a few animals in the window and seven prints on the walls.
I will be posting an online gallery of the pieces tomorrow and hopefully the shop will be up by then too. If not, then by the weekend.

Here are some of the toys in the window:

The pears look a little unsure – but I sold one while I was standing there – How exciting!

And here are some of the prints hanging on the wall.

Now I need to go and sit on the couch…

    Well done! What a huge effort.The prints, animals and pears look perfect in the shop space. I’ll have to get down there and have a sticky beak.

    congratulations! i’ve been lurking on your blog. and i love all your work. is there some way i can get hold of your pear? and i think i visited that shop when i was in melbourne!


    Man, your work just kills me with its adorable-ness. I LOVE those stuffed animals. You inspire me to make more art of my own.
    And shop? SHOP? As in an online shop? If that’s the case I will definitely be buying one of those softies!


    Oh! how exciting! I live just around the corner and will definately be in on Saturday to look and buy.Well done! It looks great!


    wow…I am so excited for you. I think for any creative person the absolute highlight would be able to “show” your work…well done!!!! pity I live in Sydney….


    Oh, I still love the pears. It’s the worried expression. Of course you’re worried when someone is sticking needles in you!Everything looks so good – well done Claire!


    congratulations… everything looks fantastic ..well done… go and have a glass of champaign! It must have been thoroughally exhausting amongst all the excitement…I bet it will all sell out in no time…If only I lived in Melbourne.


    !!! That is so cool and exciting 🙂 *bounce* I love those little pears! THey DO look uncertain, but isn’t that teh charm?


    ooh… carlisle street is so close to my work… I’ll have to pop down tomorrow. I secretly hope everything looks awful so I don’t end up spending any money – but I can already see that’s not going to be the case. Congratulations! 🙂


    Gorgeous stuff. I WANT one of those pears! How much longer is the show on … I’ll have to try to get there.


    oh my gosh, they’re super lovely! will definitely have to drop by and look see… when is the show on until?


    Cool! I love shows and yours looks like it’s going to be great! I feel inspired…I’m going to try something like this in my small town!


    I wish nothing more than to be strolling by Hudson Clothes to happen upon your work. But until that happens, your snaps will have to do. Everything looks delicious. Congratulations!


    claire! how wonderful! i love seeing your work up for more people to enjoy! 🙂 they look so natural in that setting by the way. 🙂


    Yes, do go sit on the couch, have a nice beverage of your choice, and if you should happen to fall into a blissful slumber, so be it! Congratulations Claire! I can’t wait to see more!


    Hey Claire, your artwork is really breathtaking and it makes me sad that I’m absolutely hopeless at illustration and design. Anyway, you can be sure I will definitely be back to look at the online gallery of your pieces. 🙂


    I love the little pears and the prints! Put some online so I can beg my hubby to let me buy some! I love them!!
    Will you be allowing shipping to the states?


    Congratulations Claire!!! All your works are gorgeous. Well done!!!! I look forward to seeing it all online. Good luck with it all.


    Would love to pop in and see all your work, but i live in Sydney…you should set up something similiar for us sydney siders..


    I went to see the show this morning… such gorgeous things Claire! You must be very proud (and relieved!)… I put a little red dot on pear number 10 🙂 There were quite a few red dots going on in the window display actually!… the lady in the shop asked me straight away if I knew you from your website… she must have met a fair few Loobylu readers in only 1 day! She said there were some of us waiting outside when she opened! Anyway… congrats! -Lucy x


    Thanks to a tradie who was due TWO HOURS earlier, I couldn’t get there in time to collect the beautiful Annie cat (on the far right) but I decided to be sanguine about it and if she wasn’t meant to be in my house, then so be it (such tranquility!).
    We wandered around and admired everything. The colours and quality of the prints are lovely Claire – I can see why you were so pleased with them. I was very tempted by the gorgeous girl with pigtails but we don’t have space at the moment (a cat would have been nice and small and tucked away into a corner somewhere!).

    But the nicest bit came when we were leaving. We stood on the pavement peering through the window at the different pears and toys and an elderly lady came round the corner with her grandson, a little boy in a chunky scarf. They stopped and she said in heavily accented English “look at all those pears”. We all looked together and then went out separate ways.



    I called into the shop today to have a squiz – it all looks beautiful! I would have grabbed a pear (with the bit of red in the fabric) but they were all spoken for. Well done!


    oh look at the cutie pears! they look so funny in the window…wondering where they are and what their fate might be. and your dolls look wonderful (do I recognize the fabric on that little kitty dress?) great job on everything! wish I could hop on a plane to Melbourne and see everything in person


    Congratulations on the exhibition. I know the shop and think it’s a fantastic fit for your wonderful work. You should be very proud.
