Containment and Contextures Sneak-Peek

I was able to shoot some images this weekend of some new work with my friends and fellow potters Doug Dotson and Teresa Pietsch. Doug has a great set-up in the living space above his studio and I think we got some great images this last go around. It's great having this space dedicated for image taking and Doug has played around a lot with his camera and the backdrop, lighting, etc., all of which I so greedily take advantage of. Check out Mr. Dotson's website at for some examples of his images/pots. I'm not sure if Teresa has put her new images up yet, but check out her website at

These images of some of my boxes are very similar to boxes I have in the "Containment" show at Crimson Laurel Gallery, which opens in 3 days I believe. I'm very excited to see all the pots and really applaude the CLG guys for getting the word out and building some buzz about the show. These images are of pots I'm almost completely positive that I will have in my show "Contextures" with Gillian Parke which opens May 1 at Crimson Laurel Gallery.

More words later, hope everyone is enjoying the inevitable Spring.

I'm honored to have been invited to be part of this star-studded ensemble cast of Box makers. This show will be online at but stop by and see the show in person if you are around Bakersville, NC in April and May.

Crimson Laurel Gallery will also host a two-person show featuring my work and Gillian Parke's very unique porcelain vessels May-June 2010. The opening reception for our show is set for Mother's Day weekend, Saturday, May 8. More info later, but put it on your calendar and come join us for the opening celebration!

Last Second Reminder

So, the days got away from me. Just wanted to send out a last second reminder about my solo showing opening tonight at the Nature Art Gallery in Raleigh, NC. The reception lasts from 5-9pm and is part of Raleigh's First Fridays celebration. Hope to see some peeps there!

Also, very excited to be heading to the NC Potter's Conference this weekend. Bruce Cochrane and Sarah Jaeger are my 2 highlights for the weekend, and I'm interested in hearing Ayumie Horie's presentation on ceramics and the interweb. Now, if only the Heels could roll over Dook on Saturday...that would be nice.
