This Memorial Day weekend I’ll be at the Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood for the annual Art Outside event.  Friday 5-10pm, Saturday 10-10pm, and Sunday 12-4pm.  I can’t wait to showcase fresh work from my kilns and chat about it with you.

Making teapots can be a lot of fun.  This is what I discovered after ending an unintentional teapot hiatus.  Some of my students at Krueger Pottery were curious about teapots, so I started all of these in class.  After realizing they could be more than just demonstration work, I carefully took them home to the studio and just finished them up today.  They are made from red, mid-fire clay, and are coated with a couple different types of porcelain slip.  To be fired soon…

I had the pleasure of working with the Dean of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley to create a series of five, 6x6x6″ sculptures to be awarded to distinguished alumni.  All of the compositions use cast concrete, polished brass, glazed ceramic, hardwoods and plywoods.
