Topics I've Started
Posted 17 Jun 2013After years of trying to answer whether I was doing neriage, nerikome, nerikomi, canes, murrinis or just colored clay ... I find out I am on trend, doing "Ombre" work.
THANKS for putting me in the daily post Jennifer.
... now to surf Pinterest and look up other shadowy artists.
Posted 14 Jun 2013Here is a nice video showing Antoinette Badenhorst throwing a thin wide rimmed bowl with Southern Ice Porcelain.
Posted 30 May 2013I am honored to have been invited to be the juror for the 2014 Potters Council Juried Show "Transcending Materials".
During my tenure as President of Potters Council, I was one of the facilitators of the first ever Potters Council Juried Show held during the Philadelphia NCECA ... so this show is always close to my heart!
Winning entries will be exhibited on the Vendors Floor during NCECA 2014 in Milwaukee. For those who have never had the chance to attend an NCECA conference, be aware that every attendee ends up in the Vendors area many times during the week so your work will be seen by all.
The theme is "Transcending Materials"
Potters Council Members are invited to go with your own interpretation of this theme. Our material world is filled with texture and tactile experience. As artists we are often drawn to an object because of our desire to experience the way the surface feels. Oil paint on canvas, lace on a coffee table, heavy draped upholstery, honeycomb, sunflowers. How can clay allow for this same sensory experience? Call upon old. new and innovative ways to manipulate clay in our ever-changing world.
Please consider submitting a piece of your work for jurying before the September 5 deadline.
This show has always been a wonderful tribute to the talented potters who make up the core of Potters Council.

I hope to be overwhelmed with fabulous choices!!!
Posted 20 May 2013Pete Pinnell posted this lovely bowl on his facebook page. All I can say is WOW!
Best guess is that it is a result of controlled clear glaze dripping into holes of pre-made pattern. Let's just say you would have to master both your glaze knowledge and your porcelain work to reach the exact point where it drips into the holes with no visible drip lines beyond the holes and not onto the shelves.
Posted 10 May 2013Claymakers Gallery is pleased to present a five-person show, “Handbuilt,” which features the work of Chris Campbell, Cathy Kiffney, Amy Sanders, Caroly Van Duyn, and Evelyn Ward.
People's first tools are their hands, and hand building as a clay-working technique is companion to human history. Hand-coiled, pinched, molded, and rolled clay resulted in bricks, vessels, and sculptures long before the development of the potter's wheel. The five North Carolina artists highlighted in "Handbuilt" skillfully employ these timeless techniques in a present-day mode.
An opening reception will be Friday, May 17th from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm.
I will be at the reception and hope to meet any locals who can attend.
