I recently returned from an amazing 2 week residency session at the Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts in Newcastle, Maine. I was the inviting artist for an Artist -Invite- Artist residency session titled “Atmospheric Perspectives”. The group included invited artists Julie Crosby, Louise Harter, Kenyon Hansen, Doug Jeppesen, Trevor Dunn, Liz Lurie, Dan Murphy, and Tara Wilson. We fired the train woodfired kiln, the wood/salt kiln, and Kenyon Hansen fired the soda kiln twice. It was a hot,  busy 2 weeks! The Watershed staff did an amazing job in support so that we could focus on making and discussing work and successfully firing our production. My wife and daughter (my personal support crew) were also able to come along and enjoy the beautiful mid-coast region of Maine. Thank you Watershed, we will be back!

My participation in this project was made possible, in part, with funding from The Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes QuickARTS program, administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes. Thank you!
