So I got an email from an art collector in Sydney who wanted to buy a ceramic torso he had seen online. My favourite, as it happens. Swift, a male ceramic torso with a bronze effect finish…which took me two days to apply.
So all that was great, except I did scratch my head a bit about how to get it safely from my studio in Hastings, England, to Australia.
And once you start looking for couriers/shipping options on places like uShip, Shiply and other auction sites, you come across so many dodgy outfits, it is unreal. I must have spent a full day online, searching. And the more obvious couriers, such as Parcelforce or DHL, offer no insurance and I have seen the size of their lorries…
Finally Joe, the client, came up with a firm that’ll undertake to ship it. They’re called Pack & Send and they’ll insure the parcel as well as pack it professionally. And they offer a door to door service. Happy days.

Thanks for looking!
