So my internet connection was down and the gallery has been taking up a bunch of time.
Now that I’m settled back in Carbondale I get to gear up for my solo show at SAW. I’ve decided not to go nuts trying to push a fresh kiln load out for the show and instead have a good look at the body of work that I’ve produced over the last couple months.
I’d sure like to see all my local readers come out to the show a week from tomorrow.
as I’m just getting my mailing list together please let me know if you’d like to be added. send me an e-mail thru the contact page on this blog with your info and i’ll pop a card in the mail to you.
details on the show as follows:
and a big thanks to Elizabeth Robinson for getting this card together while i was on the road. She is a great potter and great to work with thru her side business – Postcards for Artists – check her out for your postcard needs.

Spending the nite in Lincoln, NE with some dear friends. I’ll be making my way home to Carbondale tomorrow. I need a bumpersticker that says ‘Ziggy Stardust is my co-pilot’.
I’m looking forward to filling you in on the trip – lots of things to share.
And the image galleries will be updated soon as well – god willing.

i’ve found my way to the Northern Clay Center and all systems -GO- for tonights opening of the American Pottery Festival.
It’s an impressive room of pots and i’m sure to return home with my bins as full as they came – one way or another. I’ve picked out more pots than I should have and I can only hope that other folks snap some of them up before i get to them. I’ve shot lots of images and will share when I get home – no use spending vacation on the computer.
Big thanks to all the folks at the Northern Clay Center and especially to my hosts – Dominique and David for sharing their lovely home.
I’m off to walk to the Walker.

The pot’s are packed and ready to head off to Minneapolis. I’ll gather my personals in a windstorm as i try to blow out of here bright and early – which is just ’round the bend.
I took the time to shoot the work as it rolled out of kilns , and i’m glad i did.- I had a great session last nite and another this morning. Thanks to the guys at Harvey/Meadows for letting me use their gear – good friends are the best thing to have. I snapped multiple hundreds of images – here are a few that caught my eye from this morning’s shoot:
Perhaps I’ll get the chance to post from the APF and perhaps no. Either way I’ll give you a rundown upon my return.
