American Craft Council Show

Hello Friends! Next weekend I'll be at the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore. If you've never been to this event, and you like handmade items, then don't miss it because it is GIANT. There will be over 650 vendors selling ceramics, glass, woodwork, jewelry, textiles, etc. I'm part of the Hip Pop artists program, and I'll be in booth 733-2. Purchase your tickets HERE and learn more about the ACC HERE.

I focused in on one body of work (difficult for me!) for this show, and I'm very proud of the results. I'm especially excited to show my new rainbow porcelain pieces. I'm also participating in the Wholesale market on February 21 - 22. If you're interested in attending the wholesale market click HERE.




Here is a batch of mise en place pieces I made for A Rake's Progress.

A Rake's Progress is a new restaurant at the Line Hotel in Adams Morgan where, "James Beard Award–winning chef Spike Gjerde cooks what he sources from Mid-Atlantic farms and waters. For the last decade at his Baltimore restaurant Woodberry Kitchen, Spike has been a learner and a teacher of the terroir of the region — only using ingredients found within his food system. Now in DC, he cooks from an expanded landscape with a flavor all its own. Every night a banquet at A Rake’s — generous company, high spirits and conviviality."

This is the beautiful space. I think this chandelier is made from organ pipes, but I'm not sure. Also, this is where the Obamas celebrated Michelle's birthday:). Make your reservation HERE!

In case you're wondering what's with the name: "A Rake's Progress is a series of eight paintings by 18th-century English artist William Hogarth. The canvases were produced in 1732–34, then engraved in 1734 and published in print form in 1735. The series shows the decline and fall of Tom Rakewell, the spendthrift son and heir of a rich merchant, who comes to London, wastes all his money on luxurious living, prostitution and gambling, and as a consequence is imprisoned in the Fleet Prison and ultimately Bethlem Hospital. The original paintings are in the collection of Sir John Soane's Museum in London."

I'm having my Open Studio Sale this Sunday, December 17th 2017, from 11 - 4.  Please come by! 

In addition to a bunch of new work, I'll be clearing my studio of a year's worth of seconds. 

Seconds are pieces with minor flaws, like glaze imperfections or warping.  Seconds are also leftovers from commissions or experiments that just don't fit in with the rest of my work.  The pieces that really bug me get smashed (I'm very picky), but the pots that I feel can still have a good life out in the world and bring joy to their owners I keep and sell for a heavily discounted prices. There will be some serious deals to be had! 

I've had an amazing 2017, and I'm so thankful for all of your support!  Please come and celebrate with me. 

As always, kids are welcome :).

Hello Friends! I have 3 events coming up this month, and I also want to let you know that I'm having an OPEN STUDIO on Sunday, December 17th.

Save the date! Thanks to everyone who visited me in October, and thanks for reading!

Please visit me in booth #61 at Crafty Bastards this weekend! I'll be showcasing some fresh-out-of-the-kiln Contemplates (that I love) along with some new tableware, and a limited number of flower and DC mugs. It's at National Stadium this year and it will be HUGE! There will be 200 vendors. This is a perfect opportunity to support small businesses. This is a ticketed event but so worth it.
