Images from UWG exhibit

Natural Distortion: A view of Cultural Landscapes was a show that reunited a former resident artist in glass, Michael Hernandez, with two current residents, Sarah McClary, exhibitions, and myself, the clay resident.  The images above are a few installation shots and close ups of Sarah's and Michael's work. Industrial Evolution, copper, sterling silver, and steel is by Sarah. Michael's piece, Untitled, is made of glass and masonite.  My pieces are predominately clay with mixed media element such as coffee filter, polyfil, and dogwood petals.
I want to thank the University of West Georgia for exhibiting our work and hosting us for our gallery talk.  It was nice seeing the students and faculty attend and ask questions.  Hopefully some of what we said will find root in a few of the students.  


February Events

I will be near St. Louis the second week of February teaching a couple of workshops and having a reception. First up is the installation workshop at East Central College, February 11-12. I am assured that the students are excited, and we have a hall in which we can create/exhibit our work. The ideas are brewing. It is exciting to work with so many students on one project. I can't wait to see how it evolves. I will be posting pictures of all the events when I get back.
In conjunction with the workshops, I will have "Family Dinner" exhibited at my friend Jill's studio, JFH Studios. There will be a reception on that Friday evening. I can't wait to meet the people who attend.
Lastly, but not least in anyway, I will be doing a demo workshop at Krueger Pottery. The focus of this will be hand built functional ware. I am looking forward to sharing my techniques of slab built mugs, tumblers, bowls, and baking dishes. Maybe I'll have designed a plate and pitcher before then, and can demo that too.
