'I want to express my sincere gratitude to Bernadette for the opportunity to speak at the event. It was truly an honour to be a part of such a well-organised and impactful gathering. I also want to extend my appreciation to my fellow speakers: Jane Barrow, skilled ceramicist from the Hawkesbury River; Geoff Hawkins, talented potter and sculptor from the Central Coast; Maree Azzopardi, contemporary multidisciplinary artist; and Clare Richardson, collector and auctioneer. Each of them brought unique perspectives and valuable insights, contributing to the richness of the discussions. Lastly, I'd like to thank the attentive and engaged audience. Their presence and participation added immense value to the event. It's always a pleasure to connect with such a passionate and diverse group of individuals and it was a joy to be a part of that event.' - Hannah Clayton Atkin
