As Brooklyn Museum show come to an end, CRAFT | BROOKLYN at the new Brooklyn Expo is on the near horizon, just in time for Christmas shopping. Thank you so much for all who came to my booth at the Museum, and those who gave my monsters a new home. The Museum show was gorgeous, and we said goodbye to many one-of-a-kind wood-fired pieces, but I’ll have a selection of them at the Expo, along with the new gem glazes (like this “Shell” double espresso cup) and some surprises, currently in the kiln. Keep an eye on the blog and my facebook event page for images.
If you were not able to attend the Museum show, or if you are kicking yourself for not buying something you saw, please stop by and visit me at the Brooklyn Expo- 72 Noble Street, Brooklyn, NY.
Please see the link below for a complimentary ticket. If you are out of town, please share the link with your friends and family. There’s a opening party on Friday night, with music, food and drink. I’d love to celebrate with you.
“Transverse” was accepted in a jury show- The Visions in Clay at San Joaquin Delta College. It is on exhibit at LH Horton Jr Gallery between August 20th – September 17th, 2015. Opening reception is August 27th, 5-7PM.
Transverse is a multi-day wood fire in a Naborigama style kiln. Thrown on a wheel in one single ring, cut and altered. Porcelain, with under glaze and slip.
I have been experimenting with new glazes…..What do you think?
Bringing these to the Bruce Museum this weekend and the craft fair at Lincoln Center this June. Come to see them in person!
A reminder that I will be at the Brooklyn Museum Fine Craft Show on Nov. 22nd and 23rd. I hope to see you there, and if you can’t make it but have some pottery-loving friends, please share this email. It looks like a good show overall, with music and featured sculptors and free admission to the rest of the museum.Meanwhile, take a look. To see some of the kinds of work I will be showing, you can:

Chalice and Couples pieces will be available (they have their own pages on the website), and also a kiln full of wood-fired new work that I will post pictures of…on my blog? So much to do! Or on the Facebook pages. So take a look around. Here is a peek at a couple of the new monsters, below.
GALAXY, wood-fired bottle/bud vase, shark-skin shino and violite glaze. 8 inches tall.
HAPPY BUDDHA and friends, sake set. Carafe 5″ high by 4″ wide. JIZO cups, 2.75″ wide by 2″ high.
If you don’t drink sake, the carafe doubles as a small vase and the cups can be used for tea, liquor, or as spice bowls. Wood-fired, glazed with Korean celadon, slip, with feldspar crystals.
LIP, because…well, the lip! I have five of these, all different. This one is about 12 inches in diameter, 5 inches high. Shark-skin shino glaze.
The first LIP bowl, which was also my first ever show entry, in the Tokyo-New York Friendship Ceramic Competition, was an accident. I was making a regular bowl and it started to slump so I quickly hung it upside down. Getting the hang of these, and loving the different ways they hang!
Drink This! The Workhouse International Ceramic Cup Show, Lorton, VA, January 9-February 10, 2013
