Sunset over Egg Harbor, WI August 2015
As summer 2015 comes to an end, I wanted to post an update of news, travels, and happenings since my last post. In late spring, I had work in an very popular annual Yunomi Invitational exhibition at AKAR Gallery in Iowa City, Iowa. I still have pieces available here: AKAR Gallery. I also had pieces featured in Crafting Community: SUNY Community College Ceramics Instructors at the Mildred Washington Art Gallery at Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie, New York. It was a great group of artists to exhibit with, and it showed the quality of the SUNY art programs across the state.
In July, I traveled with the Corning Museum of Glass to teach a workshop at the Domanie de Boisbuchet in France. This year we worked with London based designer, Philippe Malouin, and a talented group of students who collaborated on woodfired ceramics, glass, and mixed media objects.
On the way home, I got to spend an amazing afternoon and evening in Paris. Each year I go, I fall more in love with that city!
The summer was filled with travel, work, and new adventures. As the fall begins, I’m looking forward to starting a new series of wok in the studio and taking on new responsibilities. In the late spring, I was named to the Board of Directors of The Studio Potter journal. This is a huge honor since I’ve been reading this important ceramics journal since I started working in clay in 1994. The organization will be starting some major initiatives (including a completely new website) soon to help secure to future of the journal. Stay tuned!
