Some of my favorites

Beneath the Wreath

I will be selling my pottery this weekend at Beneath the Wreath, a fundraising event for the Junior League of Grand Rapids. This will be my 3rd year at the show. I look forward to seeing past customers and vendor friends. It runs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Come and take a look - get inspired for the holiday season. The information on this show can be found at the following link --

Wish you were here

So, you are wondering about my experience at Ox-Bow right? Well, two of my works from the week residency are now on display at the Holland Area Arts Council in an exhibt entitled "Wish you were here!" It is an exhibit of work from many different artists who spent residency time at Ox-Bow. The Arts Council is located at 150 East 8th Street in Holland. The show runs from November 1 till December 1. We attended the opening reception and enjoyed our time seeing all the different works created in the past summer and year.

Another show - done!

I just returned last night from Novi, Michigan where I completed yet another show....The Sugarloaf Art Fair at the Rock Financial Showplace. The weather was beautiful this weekend. That was a nice surprise, but I think it kept people away from the show, as it was inside! The link for this show is as follows --

I am back in GR now, planning and working towards the November and December shows on my agenda. Christmas time is coming!

A press release

I forgot to mention in August that a picture of me was published in the Excel Charter Academy Parent Handbook for this school year. My wife, works there as a Speech-Language Pathologist. Last spring I demonstrated the pottery wheel at the annual art fair.

Anticipating the residency

I am on my way, along with 9 others from the UICA clay studio, to a week long residency experience at Ox-Bow School of Art ! I am very excited. I have been making, and making, and making pots to be fired in the wood fire and gas fired kilns. Recently, I made some gigantic vases for my family. They have been drying outside in our driveway. My son, Elem, has been a good helper in trimming off the excess clay. I can't wait to see what the vases look like after being fired! Check out the Ox-Bow website listed on the left. You can find out more about where I will be.
