Graduation

John Gill; 2oo1

I just brought this mug home last evening from the Harvey/Meadows Gallery.  A kind gift from Alleghany – i’m considering it a graduation present.

We had a fantastic opening last nite for Betty and George Woodman – visit the exhibition if you can.

I’m ticking down my final Artstream Market Days and finishing up in the studio before packing up and shipping off to Penn State University for graduate study.

    Grad studies? I would have bet that you had already done your penance. From where I’m looking from, you are already succeeding magnificently. Your personal work is top notch and your community projects are really changing how a lot of us are engaging our local markets… are you looking to teach, or is this the next step towards making “it” official?

    Thanks for your kind words Zygote.

    I’m really looking forward to the upcoming two years of graduate work. I do entertain the possibility of teaching in a more formal setting at some point – and there are certainly other doors that open with the backing of a masters degree. Mostly I am interested in a concentrated time of risk and exploration outside of the demands of the marketplace – for awhile.

    And while I love making $50 mugs – and intend to continue and push my functional pots in school – I have some long form – less accessible objects in mind that I’m going to get after with the help of the fine tax payers of Pennsylvania.
