I'm a bit tired. I think these photos will show why. These two events were happening simultaneously, with a 3 hour drive between them. The opening was so worthwhile. The presence of friends and family was something I never would have thought possible a few years ago. Discussing a piece of my art with my … Continue reading Nibbles and Wads (Part 2)
The two most extreme conditions of my summer plans are suddenly coinciding and I wish there were two of me so that I could fully experience both. In Fredericksburg, my solo exhibit of gas fired sculptures, vessels and a 1000 piece installation is having an opening reception on Friday August 4th...that's tomorrow! The popular First … Continue reading Nibbles and Wads

The inside of the kiln is built each time … Continue reading Glazed and Confused (or Dude Where’s My Car?)

So I hit 1000 mouth impressions at 11pm last night and celebrated with a shot of Jameson and a rendition of the Proclaimers "500 Miles" with my own words (take a minute to sound it out). It felt like a lot of work and I celebrated. 1000 is a big number, and a small number. … Continue reading Contemplating 1000
I surpassed the 800th mouth last week. Don't know what I'm talking about? Go back to this post for some vague answers. That project aside, I've been working on a group of sculptures which I am calling "History Lessons". More pictures to come of them but, I don't want to give them away at this … Continue reading Pieces falling into place… pieces falling.
