Upcoming Workshop at Hartwick College.

For those of you in the greater Oneonta, New York area: I will be at Hartwick College this week on Wednesday the 23rd and Thursday the 24th for a Visiting Artist demo and lecture.  Actually, I'll be doing a sort of tag team demo and lecture with my friend and amazing potter Tyler Gulden....I'm not 100% sure of the exact times, but you can check the website for details.  I DO know that Wednesday's demo will begin in the Ceramics Studio around 10am......

Thanks to Prof. Stephanie Rozene for making this possible, in conjunction with the Investigating the Vessel exhibit that she recently curated.  (though I believe the show will be down before I arrive).

...Everything's free and open to the public!  C'mon by and introduce yourself, I'd love to meet you!

BUT, in case you can't make it, here are some new images of forms that I'll be focusing on:

...2 new chawan.

...brand new liquor bottle w/stand. plate and bowl set.

"The Camera Has Been Drinking......not me"

Here's some images of new work on display through December at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, LA.....I'm probably the last person I know without a smartphone, so I enlisted some help in taking a couple of quick iPhotos.  A few are a bit out of focus, but I'm still grateful and will hopefully have more to post by the end of the month.

This is the second installment of their "Artist Spotlight" series.  The first one featured ceramist Mark Derby, who really set the bar high!  I am honored and humbled to be in such company, and I think this body of work provides a good counterpoint to Mark's green lichen- glazed, terracotta sculptural vessels.

All of the pots here represent the reason for me being somewhat of a  reclusive since August, as well as a glimpse of things to come for my show at the Carol Robinson Gallery next month.

In a classic display of bad form, I overbooked myself for 2 back-to-back shows (in the same city, no less).  Actually, that's not entirely true......we originally talked about doing this show at the Ogden last January but, at the time, I was waiting for a bunch of pots to be shipped back from Tennessee.... The new work's better, I think.

And I like to stay busy.  It keeps the mind and hands active.....'less susceptible to the distractions of New Orleans.  Or, at least, that's my mantra for the next 3 weeks.....

...classic celadon.

...this one's bigger, in person.

....larger versions of my covered jars w/ pierced knobs.
