Cheers to new adventures!

Hello out there!
In case anyone was wondering, I will not be starting up classes this week and I am not sure when I will be starting up classes again.
There are many opportunities that have been presenting themselves so teaching in my studio is taking a back seat right now.
I will keep you informed with how things progress.
Check back for updates.
Cheers to new adventures and embracing change.

Multiples-Process-Pattern at Brick Ceamic and Design Studio update.

It is July and the last correspondence I sent out was possibly last November in 2017.  The summer garden is planted the wood kiln is cooling, the electric bisque kiln is heating up and I am getting ready for a show at Brick Ceramic and Design Studio.

I have spent the past 6 months developing new work, reorganizing the studio and exploring wood firing.  The new work will be exhibited at Brick Ceramic and Design Studio and the opening is August 3rd.  In addition to the opening reception, there will be a workshop, artist talk and a closing date reception (see image below for dates).  There will be an opening at the coffee shop on the closing date of Multiples-Process-Pattern.  Ryan Laganson will be talking about Yixing teapots and showing work inspired by the teapots.  I hope you can make it to one if not all of the events.  If you come please do not hesitate to say hello and tell me how we met.  I need help remembering due to the over stimulation at art events.

Brick is run by Valerie Grossman.  Val founded brick to serve the community of Waterloo and bring a ceramic space to the area.  There is a gallery, communal studio, a few apartments and coffee shop in the complex at 16021 Waterloo Rd. and E.161st St.

On the opening date of the show, Multiples-Process-Pattern, there will also be a pop up show in the studio of Brick.  Both Matthew Pritchard and I will have work in the studio for sale.  This is a link to Matthew's website and believe it or not I still do not have a website.  I am on FB, Instagram and have a Blog You can search my name on FB and Instagram to find my page.

I am very excited about the new work I am making.  Brinsley Tyrrell, retired sculpture professor K.S.U., never plans on really retiring.  We go to Brinsley's property in Freedom Ohio and call ourselves Fired in Freedom.  You will see some of this work at Brick.

I hope you can come to visit and see the new work at Brick Ceramic and Design Studio.

A few other things.
* "An exhibit spotlighting the unique beauty and techniques of wood-fired ceramics, featuring artists hand-selected from the NE Ohio-area wood-firing community", curated by Judith Salomon, will be at the Valley Art Center.  I am honored to be included in this exhibition opening Tuesday September 4th.  The opening reception date is September 14th 6-8 and the end date is Wednesday October 10th.

* An exhibition titled MADE of CLAY, curated by Mary Urbas, will be at The Gallery at Lakeland.  I am honored to be invited to participate in this exhibition.  Opening and artist reception Thursday, September 20th, 7-9.  This community college is where I began working with clay with George Somogyi.  A most amazing and dear teacher who I will always hold dear in my heart.  The exhibition dates are September 20 - November 2, 2018.

* Teaching, yes I would like to get back to teaching in the studio.
Mark your calendars for a target date.  How about September 26th.  Please contact me if you are interested and I will begin to promote the class.

Best Regards

Hearts and Lotus Pods

We had another wood firing in Freedom, Ohio (6.1.2018)
Ryan spraying soda in the kiln chamber.
Nicolin spraying soda in the kiln chamber.
The firing was a good one and of course exhausting.
Susan restacking the wood.

The kiln fired for about 52 hours and we unloaded last Wednesday (6.6.2018).  I had some hearts and lotus pods in the kiln.
This heart went home with Michele.

And this heart went home with Jenifer.
The lotus pods at first were a bit uncomfortable to make.  Often, when I begin a new series of work it is not until I see the completed work that I can breathe a bit easier.  Sticking with the vision and making it happen can be exhausting and worth it when I see all the completed work.
