Show at Bottle Rocket Gallery

It was a wonderful past week in Fayetteville, Arkansas. My great friends, Kat Wilson and Sarah Leflar, run the Bottle Rocket gallery, a lovely space that brings in artists from outside of Northwestern Arkansas that residents of that area may otherwise not see. Being invited to Bottle Rocket is in some ways like a tiny residency. Artists are invited to have an exhibition, talk with the students of the University and folks around town, and hang around the lovely grounds of Finger Road. You can read more about Bottle Rocket on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/bottlerocketartgallery Here are some images of my show:

Dosha Kitchen does Northern Spark

I’m a little late in posting but it was an exciting summer for Powderhorn Kitchen. Jess and I collaborated on Dosha Kitchen, an interactive installation within a trailer where participants learned about their Ayurvedic dosha through food sampling, objecthood, and a simple quiz.  trailer

Residency at Grand Marais Art Colony

For the past 2 weeks I’ve been sketching large scale for bigger 3-D works. I have a beautiful, well-lit space in an old church hall to work in right up the street from the majestic Lake Superior.

Ceramic Tapestries

An idea I’m working on–ceramic tapestries! These are just sketches… some cracks and crawling, but I’m still into it.
