Wood and Soda Fired Pottery



This little group of three tumblers went to New Orleans recently as part of an Annual Invitational Juried Exhibition held at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and titled “The Art of the Cup: Functional Comfort”.  I was very pleased to be included in this event and happy that at least my tumblers were heading to New Orleans even if it is without me. 

The exhibition is put on by The Center for Southern Craft and Design, and if you happen to be in the area it opens November 12th and closes on December 13th.

Since the organizers wanted me to send along some images of the pieces I was sending, it was a great chance to hold onto some of my favorite pieces from the last firing and try to get some images of those too.  It’s great to get the images of the pieces, but also just to keep them around for a bit for observation. 

A few of these pieces might make their way to another exhibition that has come up recently thanks to potter Ronan Peterson

He’s invited a great group of potters from the mountains around Asheville to get together for a show at Claymakers in Durham, NC. It looks like the show will be called “Asheville in the Bull City” , and will run from January 15-March 12, 2010.  The potters will include Karen Newgard, Kyle Carpenter, Lindsay Rogers, Patty Bilbro, and myself.

Each potter is sending at least 30 pieces, so it is sure to be a room full of great work!
