Wood Fire Exhibit at Ten 10 Gallery

In November 2013 I participated in a group show with Sara Patterson and Melissa Bieri at Ten-10 Gallery in Long Island City.  Photographer and owner, Jesse Winter also exhibited photos that he took at Peter’s Valley during the firing.  The show was a great success!

Wood Fire Preparations

Making pots for upcoming wood fire at Peter’s Valley this October.  One of the ceramic studios where I teach (Earthworks NYC)  is doing a group firing and I have been invited to participate.  Love to wood fire at Peter’s Valley.  Bruce Dehnert, the ceramics resident, is a master at firing the noborigama kiln there.  Should be a great time.

Garden Cups & Saucers

These lively cups and saucers are on view at the Peekskill Clay Studio until Oct. 30.  I’m trying to capture an essence of New Orleans and it’s tropical lushness.

Peekskill Exhibit

Lemonfish Platter, 19″x 9.5″

Yesterday we went up to Peekskill for the opening of an exhibit that I’m in.  This is a platter from my series of fish platters and I’m showing it, along with a few other pieces,  at the clay studio for the next 2 weeks.   This platter is inspired by the fact that a cobia is also known as a lemon fish.  A similar piece in the show was mentioned in the NY Times.
