i’ve got a nice little body of work available at the Schulman Project. Benji has done a great job putting this gallery together in Baltimore – and i’m pleased to have some pots there for sale. so if you’d like to support a working potter and a new gallery commited to cutting edge ceramic art – pay a visit to The Schulman Project and poke around a bit.
my first pots of 2o14 are coming together. while i’ve resolved to make more large pots this year -(big covered jars in particular)- show invites have conspired to keep me attached to the cup – for this 1st round. mugs for hot adult beverages are cooking as we speak en route to the Clay Studio in Philadelphia for a fun little upcoming show called ‘Warm&Fuzzy’ – for which , in conjunction with old SAWmate Andi Korber, and a bottle of excellent Rum received from my brother for the christmas, i have developed the ‘Nasty Corsair‘ & ‘the ‘Stiff Willie‘. and the annual yunomi show at Akar has an oddly early deadline – so i’ll be turning and trimming sencha tea cups directly. i’ve also vowed to get a kiln load of flower pots made for the springtime – which is closer than appears. and my final resolution is to work on a precept called ‘devotion’ which has always puzzled me – though i’m coming around with the help of Glorious Manjushri.
i’m sure hoping that the New Year is finding you all well.
today is the day to break a bit of a dry spell in my studio. it has been a fertile few weeks of thinking, feeling, writing and sharing good time with good people. now that i have places to make art from – it’s high time to get back to the making. so you can expect some wet pot pics up here in the near future.
enjoy the 1/2hr of Joni…
May all beings everywhere be safe, be happy, be healthy, and live with ease.
