Morning studio sunlight. Lillstreet Open Studios is coming up: Friday, November 30th from 6-9 pm and Saturday, Dec 1 from 12-4 pm. I’m in 209 — come check out all the second and third floor artists at Lillstreet Art Center.
First time woodfire! Nothing better than learning by working hard with good clay people...big thanks to @jrothshank for hosting and @chrischaneyceramics for setting it up for @lillstreetceramics - I’m exhausted and inspired, a truly great feeling. @troybungart and @sadiemisiukceramics you are good teachers and I am thankful! Broke in my welding gloves and the Pupper wants to know the source of all these new smells.
Not my president? Not A President. Partisan politics aside, our current person in power needs checks and balances. Vote and get out the vote. Democracy depends on your vote, voice and action. Find it where you may and don’t be afraid.
#mugshotmonday shout out to two quality potters and people from an influential workshop last year #arrowmont #claysweatshop still appreciating your role in my own clay journey @christylculp @carterpottery
Alley walks inspiring some cups. Enjoying heavily textured surfaces these days.
wine country weekend bliss
I like to think of my clay goals as mile markers...this recent dinnerware set helps me mark my path on the larger clay journey.
Ravenswood Art Walk open studio, Lillstreet 209, today and tomorrow from 10-5...I have small sets, serving pieces and cup pairs,here are just a few of the goodies. Stop by or DM me to hold something back for you. Hope to see you!
Dinner plate, salad plate, bowl and mug (in five different pairs), two sets of altered serving dishes, large serving bowl and platter...with carbon trapping up the ying! Feels right on.
Dinner plate, salad plate, bowl and mugs (in five pairs of two) for 10. Two sets of altered serving bowls, large bowl and platter, all with carbon trapping up the ying. Some of my best work to date and I am happy.
