Final Friday, ReArt Opening at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center, Spring Pottery Fair

It is going to be a crazy two weeks. I have all kinds of events coming up to tell you about.

art into action logoThis coming weekend is Final Friday at the Pendleton. My studio will be open from 6-10 and I am continuing to show the sculptural work that I am making with my Cincinnati Art Ambassador Fellowship. On Saturday, April 27 from 11-3 I hope you’ll join me for the second Art In Action. It’s a community outreach art program here at the Pendleton. A select group of artists in the building are offering a variety of FREE classes, demos and lectures. I am teaching a book necklace class, there is a beginning jewelry class, a “make and take” pastel class and more. Check out our Facebook fan page at www.facebook/PendletonAIA. We also have a YouTube channel. To see a couple of fun video shorts about the Art In Action experience, just visit YouTube here.

I’d like to invite you to attend the opening of ReArt on May 3 at the Clifton Cultural Art Center. It is an exhibition showing the original and collaborative works by artists from Cincinnati, Ohio and Barbacoa, Cuba. It is a fascinating show and it’s fun and interesting to see all of the artist interpretations of eachother’s work.


The next day you can see my latest work at the Clay Alliance Spring Fair show at DeSales Corner on Saturday, May 4 from 11am to 5pm. I’ll be posting more about that later!

Upcoming Shows – Clay Alliance Spring Pottery Fair

Just a reminder that I’ll be participating in the Clay Alliance’s Spring Pottery Fair on Saturday, May 5. The show takes place at DeSales Corner in East Walnut Hills and there will be more than 60 clay artists set up, selling their works from 11am – 5pm. There will of course be a broad range of styles and several of the artists will also be doing some demonstrations.

If you’ve attended in the past you know that each year the Clay Alliance raffles off a clay piece. The exciting news is that this year the piece they are raffling off is mine, which is pretty flattering.

Here are two photos I snapped of the front and back of the vessel while it was still at my studio (pardon the mess in the second photo….).


It’s called “In the Midst,” and it is a lidded vessel. The piece was thrown on the wheel, altered to create an asymmetrical form and finished with a hand built lid in the shape of a tornado.  I used directional carving in to create movement across the surface of the piece. Many layers of underglaze are applied to create the images on the surface and give the feeling of low relief.  The image of a dragon is painted on one side and the other side shows a group of trees, surrounded by miniature, floating paintings.   The piece is finished with a high gloss glaze which brings out the subtle yet rich color palette.

If you are interested (and it’s for a good cause), raffle tickets can be purchased in advance at Core Clay or at FUNKe Fired Arts. They will of course also be selling tickets the day of the fair. Tickets are 1 for $1 or 6 for $5.

If you can make it out to Spring Pottery Fair, we’d all love to see you. With more than 60 artists selling their works, there’s bound to be something for everyone.  For more info on the show, visit
