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:
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.
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.
An idea I’m working on–ceramic tapestries! These are just sketches… some cracks and crawling, but I’m still into it.
I’m gearing up for the Jerome show at the Northern Clay Center on January 17th! Check it out: https://www.northernclaycenter.org/exhibition/three-jerome-artists-3 Here’s one of my favorite plates to be included in the exhibition.
I’ve been searching for a beautiful handmade quilt for a long time. This one is perfect and I’m so happy. $6 at the thrift store.
Another new obsession are these japanese dusting cloths. I got several from here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/indigobluejapan?ref=l2-shopheader-name. Just look at this lovely stitching.
I have some new work up at two of my favorite online stores based out of Minneapolis. Check them out!
I’m very excited about being featured in Food & Wine magazine’s Trendspotting section along with Foundry Home Goods!
