Prepping for Haystack Cast Glass Workshop

July 19, 2015

I’ve been wanting to explore kiln-cast glass for a while, so I’m excited to attend Daniel Clayman’s Haystack workshop at the end of August. I’ve been teaching myself to create objects in wax in preparation. Here are a few:

It will be interesting to see how they translate into glass.

Ceramics Now Magazine.

February 8, 2012

Ceramics Now Magazine celebrates the creative field of ceramics by featuring profiles, works and interviews with ceramic artists across the globe. They just posted a profile of some of my works, artist statement, and CV on their website. You can read it here. While you are there, please check out some of the other artist interviews and profiles on the site. I find a tremendous amount of inspiration in the stories of other artists. This new magazine is a good resource for that. Enjoy!

Beyond the Brickyard exhibition.

February 5, 2012

I just returned from a whirlwind weekend in Montana, celebrating the opening of the 4th annual Beyond the Brickyard exhibition at the Archie Bray Foundation. The exhibition was juried by Richard Shaw this year. The show is situated in the North Gallery and runs through April 7th.

The artists and staff at the Bray were very welcoming, especially Emily Free Wilson. I spent a few hours during the day walking the grounds and taking in the sights. Ceramic art is nestled into nearly every nook and cranny, transforming a simple walk into a fun adventure. Below is a small taste of the hundreds of photos I took while exploring the grounds:

Not from around here?

August 2, 2011

This wall piece is approximately 11 wide x 11 high x 3 in deep. The materials are porcelain, a super groggy dark stoneware sculpture body and glaze. It was reduction fired in a gas kiln to cone 10. I love how the grog turned that nice toasty tan, contrasting with the dark reddish brown of the rest of the sculpture body. The Shaner White glaze in the crevices adds a nice sparkle to the raw porcelain. Yum!
