Hello Friends and happy December!  I've had good year in the studio with lots of fun projects keeping me busy. 


I want to let you know about 3 upcoming events. 

I'm having my annual Studio and Seconds Sale on Sunday 12/15 from 11-3. My seconds table will be my best yet.  I have a lot of pieces with small flaws, one offs, and items I'm ready to say goodbye to. Please come! 

As always, kids are welcome.

Don't forget I'm in the alley behind the above address - follow the arrows.

I've really been focusing in on vases and bottles, and I'm excited to show you. I will also have some new Graffiti Mugs (based on the area near Union Market), flower pieces, and the other usual suspects. 


THIS SATURDAY in BALTIMORE!

I'm participating in Charm City's Craft Mafia Holiday Heap Sale.  I've never done this one before, but it's supposed to be really fun and its inside!  And it's in Baltimore - my home town.

THIS SUNDAY 12/8

Rose Jaffe's Art Market at the STEW

(these will go fast so come early :)

A wonderful new collaboration has happened recently with a DC artist / activist I really admire.  Rose has spent some time in my studio over the last month covering some of my luckiest pots with her art.  These pieces will be for sale, along with some other amazing art and DC vendors on Sunday.

December 8th

925 Emerson Street NW

I'm opening my doors NEXT SUNDAY for my annual Open Studio and Seconds Sale. Please come by! I've made about 2000 pots in 2018 and this means that my seconds stash is extra good this year! Seconds are pieces with small flaws, experiments, class demos, and the pots I just don't want sitting around my studio anymore. They will be priced to sell, so you'll be getting some excellent deals and I'll be clearing space for the new year. I'll also be selling my usual work - pattern ware, rainbow ware, one of a kind mugs, and a nice selection of bowls, plates, and vases. Bring your friends and, as always, kids are welcome. I hope to see you!

*Please note that my studio is in the alley BEHIND this address.

Graffitea Bowls

There is a limited edition of one of a kind Graffitea Bowls done in collaboration with the Sticker Show and available only at the Fridge gallery. This exhibit is really worth seeing! HERE is a link to a great article by Brightest Young Things. 'Sticker artist and curator 'iwillnot' returns to The Fridge with the DC Street Sticker Expo 4.0 featuring the largest sticker combo wall in history as well as a series of select small and large-scale adhesive artworks from featured artists. Covering the entire gallery floor-to-ceiling (and then some), the combo wall will feature an estimated 200,000 stickers from nearly 1,000 artists based around the world. While artists based in the United States make up the largest contributing group, artists from nearly every continent in the world have sent in original street art stickers.'

I am drawn to the collaborative nature of graffiti, and I'm inspired by seeing the history of a wall in its layers while contemplating the ephemeral quality of each written name. The ‘Graffitea Bowl’ series is my way to write my name, so to speak, and to preserve an often temporary moment in a ceremonial lasting object – the teabowl. For this collaboration, I chose to reference Oribe ware pottery, which was developed and named in Japan by Lord Furuta Oribe in the early 1600s. Oribe was seeking to promote an “aesthetic of discord’ in ceramics by celebrating surface imperfections, shape distortions, and the irregular.

The show is open at The Fridge until December 31st. Don't miss it!

There's even a BOOK that I'm honored to be included in!
