Current Work

Portraits of a Tea Cosy is an exhibition of photographic portraits by Mark Crocker and interviews by Loani Prior which opens Warwick Art Gallery on 4th July then it will travel to Mittagong, Hervey Bay, Miles, Longreach, Bundaberg, Ballina and Canberra.

Work on this exhibition started in 2012 Mark and Loani travelled to six towns in three states meeting tea cosy guardians and recording their stories.    From these meetings Mark has produced 40 black and white portraits of the interviewees with their tea cosies in colour.  Their stories have been turned into an audio presentation and delightful quotes about family, friendship and the joy of owning something handcrafted. 

This exhibition also stars 20 exuberant TEA COSIES created by Loani Prior, author of three best selling books, Wild Tea Cosies, Really Wild Tea Cosies and How Tea Cosies Change the World.  They are knitted objects d'art, woolly sculptures; clever and funny, like nothing you will have seen before.
