Packing up for CraftBoston 2017

Packing up for CraftBoston 2017

My last show for 2017. Silver Rain (featured image above) is one of the last pieces to be packed up in the bins for the 2017 CraftBoston. It’s one of the “Broken Platter” wall pieces I premiered last year, and will be on display and for sale.  This year’s pieces feature gold leafing, silver and pearl scenes against a woodfired background.  They look great in any room, alone or in clusters.

Hope to see you at Boston Convention center sometime this weekend.

My last show of the year, CraftBoston, is around the corner. I will be previewing a new cup – “Belle” – inspired by the original CHALICE series, an interactive installation of 100 vessels which was on display at the NARS Gallery in New York as part of the 2012 Locating the Sacred Festival.  The audience was encouraged to take the vessels off their pedestals, feel them and even drink tea out of them. This series is porcelain and celadon, with a Chinese-style under-painting.  These will be part of the member preview as well.
Belle, and a selection of new woodfired pieces, will be on display and for sale at CraftBoston, Dec. 15-17, at Hynes Convention Center. If you are in or near Boston area, stop by Hynes convention center booth 210 to say hi and do some holiday shopping. If you have friends in the area who you think would enjoy my work, please do share the information.

A few images of some of the woodfired pieces that will be there are below.

Happy holidays, everyone.

Brooklyn Museum Fine Craft Show

Brooklyn Museum Fine Craft Show

It’s that time of year again. I will be participating in the Brooklyn Museum Fine Craft Show for the fourth year, coming up this weekend, on November 18th and 19th. This year, I am honored to be selected as the featured artist in this little article on the show:  https://patch.com/new-york/fortgreene/potter-ming-yuen-schat-exhibit-american-fine-craft-show.

I will be bringing all wood-fired work that was recently fired, including some new gold-foil Broken Platters (wall pieces) and this showcase vase, which is 19″ high and 15″ wide (obviously doesn’t look that big in the picture).  I’m hoping that you will be in the mood to venture out, see some beautiful things (you can visit the new Rodin exhibit and other Brooklyn museum exhibits with your ticket) and support a local small business (me). I would be very happy to see you.

Please mark your calendars, and if you are out of town or not able to stop by to say hi, please forward the information to any friends who might enjoy the work.  I will also be finishing out the year in Boston at Craft Boston Holiday, at the Hynes Convention Center on December 15th-17th. This is my second year at Craft Boston.  In case you are in that area or have friends who are, I would be very happy to see you and your friends in Boston.

We had a good turnout at our two craft shows in Brooklyn.  Thank you to all who showed up.  Since many of these pieces are new, I’m posting pictures so you can see what you missed. A few of these monsters are still available.  If you are interested, drop me a line.
