I wanted to give you all a heads-up on something I’m participating in in October.
I will be a featured presenter in the From the Ground Up Conference in Zanesville from October 10-12, 2014. The conference is presented by Zanesville Ohio Ceramic Arts (ZOCA), the Muskingum County Community Foundation(MCCF), and the Artist Colony of Zanesville (ART COZ). My presentation will focus on surface decoration, such as underglaze, matte, and specialty glazes, and I will also touch on some of the hand building techniques that I use when making sculptural pieces, including my miniature clay books and clay pencils. Other presenters include John Balistreri, Ken McCollum, Tom Radca, Jeremy Randall, and Gail Russell.
If this conference sounds like it would appeal to any of you, there are still spots available! The conference is open to artists of all skill levels from amateur to master. All that is required is an openness to learning and connecting with other ceramic artists!
The Conference occurs in conjunction with the Zanesville Prize for Contemporary Ceramics, now taking entries. I’m sending in pieces for the clay competition, though acceptance notifications don’t come out till August.
Visit their website (zanesvilleprize.org) for more information and stay tuned as the event gets closer!

Come and enjoy this casual, one day ceramics show. This select group of ceramic artists including Dick Aerni, Louise Jenks, Pam Korte, and Brenda Tarbell approaches ceramics from a different perspective. There is a variety of functional work including mugs, bowls, plates and serving platters, bud vases, lidded jars, butter dishes and bottles.
Sculptural and one of a kind art pottery will also be available. Ceramic jewelry and other pieces to grace your wall will also be exhibited. Price points to fit every budget, the friendly front yard atmosphere and being able to visit with the artists make this show a must see
I’m making miniature flat pencils and necklaces in all colors of the rainbow. Stop by if you can and say hi!
The 14th Annual Clay Alliance Spring Pottery Fair is returns May 3 and I hope you will come by and see me! I’ve been working in the studio quite a bit and cant wait to share it with you.

Thank you to everyone who came out for Cliftonfest this weekend. The weekend was a great success. If you weren’t able to make it down , try to head over to see the ArtCarpets before they wash away. My mural is on Ludlow, in front of the Clifton Library book drop. I’m excited I was able to be a part of the weekend.
Today is Final Friday at Pendleton Art Center, and I am excited to share that joining me in my studio will be guest artist Jeb Brack. I met Jeb, who recently moved to Cincinnati with his family, when he came with his family to several of the Pendleton’s Art in Action programs. We got to talking and I found out he was a self-taught artist who did pencil and pen and ink drawings of buildings and houses. He does commission drawings of homes too, for those of you who might be interested. In addition to his art, Jeb is a professional magician, writer, proofreader, and podcaster.
I’ll be in the studio with Jeb on Friday and on Saturday you’ll be able to find me at Cliftonfest drawing a pastel ArtCarpet on the sidewalk in front of the library on Ludlow. There are going to be some wonderful artists and performers out all weekend celebrating Clifton.
I am really excited to announce the opening weekend of my solo exhibition, “BALANCE” on Friday, September 6th and Saturday, September 7th at Humler & Nolan in Downtown Cincinnati! The opening reception will be held on Friday, September 6th from 5 – 8 pm. For anyone who is unable to make the Friday opening, Humler & Nolan will be open the next day, Saturday, September 7th from 10 am to 2 pm, during which time I will be present to greet you and discuss my latest work. Humler & Nolan is located at 225 E. Sixth Street, 4th floor, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202.
The exhibition will showcase the sculptural pieces that I created as a Cincinnati Art Ambassador Fellow, as well as some of my hand painted vessels.
Along with viewing my work, you will be able to look at selections of Rookwood, Keramics and Art Glass that will be available for purchase at Humler & Nolan’s Holiday Sale 2013. To learn more about Humler & Nolan, their history and upcoming auction, visit their website, humlernolan.com.
Casey Riordan Millard, one of the 2013 Cincinnati Art Ambassador Fellows, has placed her life size sculpture, Shark Girl, at Yeatman’s Cove.
There will be a gathering to celebrate on Friday, August 9, at 5:30. Come to the Eastern most flag pole at Yeatman’s Cove and celebrate with us! Be sure to bring your camera. Shark Girl sits on a large rock and there is room for you to sit beside her for a photograph. Hope to see you there!
