I will be participating in a variety of shows this year including the Mint Museum Potters Market in Charlotte, NC. While continuing to make wood fired functional & Animalware pots, I'm also experimenting with lower temperature terracotta clay & maiolica tin glaze in my wood kiln. I spent some time painting during snowy January & having just made fresh clay, I'm preparing to begin a new pottery cycle. Our Penland Road apartment still has availability. Check out the Accommodation Page. Cheers! ps, This summer Jo & I will be celebrating our marriage in Italy.
