East Coast Traveling

Well, it's been a busy few months at Nine Toes Pottery.  NCECA in Providence, RI back in March was an awesome affair with lots of enthusiastic clay heads descending on the northeastern town.  Had a great workshop with the Ceramic Designers Association in Virginia Beach, VA on the way back to Chapel Hill and headed up to Wooster, OH for the Functional Ceramics Workshop in April.  I presented alongside Gay Smith and Dan Finnegan, which was quite an honor and also a whole lot of fun!  

Now, tomorrow I head to Nashville, TN to present alongside some more ceramic luminaries, Linda Arbuckle, Birdie Boone, and Jason Bige Burnett, and I am very excited and still wondering how I got invited.  This presentation will be at the Clay Lady's Campus, sponsored by Mid-South Ceramics and organized by the Potter's Council.  Hoping to see some of you there, say howdy!   Next weekend I head to Atlanta for a repeat appearance at Mudfire Studio and Gallery.  I think there may be a few spots left if anyone is interested in a weekend of Slippin' and Siggin'.  I'll have pots for sale and an online show that goes up after the workshop.  Check out the link below:

Also, coming up this weekend is the AKAR Gallery annual Yunomi invitational.  The sneak peeks look fabulous and I am extremely grateful to have five cups, with some new decorations, in this perenially stellar show.   Upcoming shows at the Kiln Gallery in Fairhope, with a late June workshop, and the final workshop, i think, of 2015, at Pocosin Arts in Columbia, NC, mid July.  Hope to see some of yall at one of these events!  Enjoy Spring into Summer and have wonderfilled days!   

P.S.  See you Charlotteans again this year at the Mint Museum's Potter's Market!  I'm back in the least for this year...
