As an artist, one of my favorite things to do is to totally nerd out and talk pots with someone who is equally passionate about them. Well, Ron Philbeck and I did just that this past week; we posted our conversation on YouTube so you could join in on our conversation. We're both making new work, so it's pretty exciting....(if I may say so!)
Check it out here:
For some reason, I couldn't get the video to post directly to the blog (blogger wasn't finding the video on YouTube). Hopefully I'll figure it out and get it on this page tomorrow.

For the last few months I've been testing low-fire glazes and terra sigilattas for new colors and surfaces to use on my work (I'll track back and talk more about this process at a later time). Here's the most recent result: new work headed to Houston for a show during NCECA with my pals from our Thrown Together group (Julie Wiggins, Ron Philbeck and Jen Mecca).

No, I'm not pregnant again (although based on the past few years of my life, that would be a fair guess)! I have an instructional DVD coming out! The wonderful Potter's Council invited me up to their headquarters in Columbus, OH this past summer to record some of my techniques. Over the course of a few days we prepped, filmed and laughed a lot. The gang up there is great!The DVD is organized to cover 5 different surface techniques and then 5 corresponding projects, along with multiple variations of each.
The Ceramic Arts Daily site recently featured a sample clip from the dvd. Check it out here.

March will be quite a month for there there pottery. I've been working on new work in the studio for some shows coming up:
There are some new low-fire bowls of mine being featured in a multi-media group show at Gallery Up in Rock Hill, SC called ARPA:Raw. 8 other artists will have work in clay, painting, printmaking, and installation. The show opens tomorrow (Thursday, March 10) at 7:00.
A sugar/creamer set much like the one below is being featured in the Mad Hatter's Exhibition at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach Florida. Sales from the exhibition help fund their residency program, so if you're in the area, stop by and purchase some pots for a good cause!Meanwhile, at Craftsman House Gallery in St. Petersburg, FL, I will be participating in an exciting show, The Art of Function, with many talented potters that is taking place during NCECA. So, if you're down for the conference, visiting or live in the area- check out the show (I think it's even on one of the bus tours for NCECA)!
Here are some of the pieces in the show...
I will also be delivering work at the end of the month to Lark and Key Gallery for a dual show with the glorious/magical painter Duy Huynh. The show opens April 1 and runs through the end of May. More details of this to follow...
