While some places are warming up, it seems others have some fresh (and final?) snow to contend with. I hope spring finds you soon wherever you are. It's shaping up to be a very full season out here:
MOVING INTO THE FIREHOUSE
I joined a group of fifteen artists at Red Dirt Studio in Mt. Rainier, MD at the beginning of 2015 and boy, are they great. We've spent the last month preparing to move into a new, permanent space (a renovated firehouse!) with the final push to get all moved in this week. I'm thrilled to have found a space I can dedicate to making my work, and it also happens composed of a stellar group of humans, which sure doesn't hurt. We'll have a couple of events coming up this season, so keep your eyes peeled.
NCECA & APPRENTICELINES
This week 5,000 ceramic artists will be descending on Providence, Rhode Island, and I will be among their number. I'm very happy to be included in the Apprenticelines Exhibition at the Pawtucket Armory as one of John Glick's disciples. Stop by for the reception on Friday, or if you can't make it then, I'll also be covering the exhibit from 3-5pm on Thursday if you'd like to swing by to say hello.
On April 11th, I'll be setting up shop in Virginia for a day at the Richmond Craft Mafia's Spring Bada-Bing, at the Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, and on May 9th &10th, I'll be participating in the 12th annual Art Star Craft Bazaar in Philadelphia at Penn's Landing Great Plaza. If you're nearby either Richmond or Philadelphia, I'd love to see some friendly faces!
Each of these three exhibits will have an online component for admirers from afar.
DOODLES FROM THE PAST
And all that doesn't include the trip Jon and I just took to Iceland, London, and Paris. We drooled over the V&A's collections, oohed and aahhed at Stonehenge and the Roman ruins in Bath, and one of my favorite moments was finding this Greek bowl at the Louvre from the 1500s that had doodles. I love that I've been imitating this in my work without even knowing about it; makes centuries past seem a little closer to us.
In the meantime, if you need a cup, bowl, set of dinnerware for a registry or something special, let's chat! I'd love to talk to you about your projects.
