NCECA

Added on by allison craver.

I've been in a frenzy for the past month or so preparing for NCECA-Milwaukee.  My dear friend and fellow artist Katie Coughlin and I are presenting a two person exhibition during the conference.  The show, Plenty, will include a collaborative installation as well as work made independently.  

The exhibition will be on view in the Marshall Building (207 E. Buffalo St.).

Tuesday 3/18 - Saturday 3/22, 9am-4pm. 

Opening Reception: Thursday 3/20 6pm-9pm.  Please join us!


In additon to preparing Plenty, I am also participating in the Process Room at NCECA.  A recent post on the NCECA blog describes the process room as "designed to allow potters to demonstrate a quick technique or process and, in many cases, to allow onlookers the opportunity to try it out."  On Friday 3/21 at 9am I will do a brief demonstration on building basket forms from wheel thrown compoments.  I am in good company!  For a complete listing of those presenting, go here.

Love Note

Ten times a day something happens to me like this - some strengthening throb of amazement - some good sweet empathic ping and swell. This is the first, the wildest and the wisest thing I know: that the soul exists and is built entirely out of attentiveness.

Handmade Madison

I am so happy to be included in the upcoming Handmade Madison: Indie Craft Marketplace 2013.  This will be my first experience selling pots at a craft show.  I have a feeling this experience will spoil me!  The organizers do an amazing job selecting contemporary, innovative vendors.  I am in good company.

Also!  Here is a sneak peak of some covered teacups I've been making....

 

In the studio.

The past few months have been very productive in the studio.  I can hardly believe it is October already!  I spent the summer very focused on several specific, engineered forms including juicers & teapots.  So, it has been a welcome change of pace to play with some forms that aren't nearly as functionally demanding.  Fruit baskets, in particular, have my attention.  They are progressing quickly; each one feels like an exaggeration of the last.

I am very pleased to be included in Archie Bray's annual "Beyond the Brickyard" juried show.  Here is an image of the lovely postcard they've designed for the event.  What wonderful company!
