Recent Work, New Series and Show!

A large exhibition of my work (over 50 pieces) will be on display from Friday March 5 (opening reception 5 – 8pm) to April 15th at the Strecker Nelson Gallery in Manhattan, Kansas.  The show, Richly Pigmented, also features a nice group of painters and pastel artists.  See more work online at www.strecker-nelsongallery.com or in person at 406 1/2 Poyntz Manhattan Kansas.

Here is an image of my most recent teapot.  I really enjoy the interaction of the blue slip and the toasty orange of the soda brick.

I began a new series in early 2010.  It builds directly on the success of my teapot series while increasing the scale.  This new series is a departure from my previous concentration on the vessel, focusing on linear and planar interactions and the effects of soda firing.

Here is the second piece from this series.  It features a simple red art slip that responds wonderfully to soda and slow cooling.  This one has also been sandblasted.

Here is a CAD sketch and the subsequent piece created from the digital sketch.

In the actual piece I used one less unit than is pictured. It features my new favorite slip!
