Big O Bowl at Mudfire

Man oh man, thangs are gettin busy! I delivered a body of work to Mudfire Gallery in Atlanta, and my solo show there opens to the public on Saturday, March 2nd. All work will be for sale at the gallery there, and online! I will be there from 2-6 on Saturday in case anybody wants to stop by!

I have also been in production mode, trying to stock up on mugs, bud vases, bowls, and some new cream & sugars for this spring. I have started using a new clay and will have all new glazes as well, so I still have a lot of work to do regarding my surfaces. I am going to incorporate more color and texture, but still keep  somewhat simple aesthetic. I am excited and very nervous to see what comes!

Greeware, about ready for the bisque!

ALSO in progress is a boat-load of slip-cast work that Jessie and I have been working on. We are still refining our vision as to what this first line of work will look like. We have tested several colored slips and 20 different glazes, and are leaning more and more towards using primarily colored slips as the basis for our palette.

We hope to launch this work by the spring, though I tell you what, I never imagined that juggling two completely different processes and bodies of work would be this hectic! At least I can do it all in the same kiln now. I was previously packing everything up and driving 2.5 hours to fire with the very generous Lee Marshall and John Sellberg.

The rest of the studio has been nice and busy, check out details about that at teamartifact.com
