THE INTRODUCTION FOR THE PATRONS:

Due to Covid restrictions, in lieu of the in person gathering to receive the artwork, we were asked to create informal videos for the Zoom reveal event.

Here are some progress shots of the "Not Good Wife" Duduo based on Ling Long ceramics and the "Good Wife" Duduo based on the Chinese symbol of double happiness. These pieces are made from porcelain clay. The blue is painted with cobalt oxide which loves to smudge so I...

I'm working on a series that is more personal to me. As I look toward turning 50 next year, I've been reflecting on my life a lot. Memories drift up, sometimes blurry, nothing more than fragments of words and images. I'm letting them come and creating work out of them...

I should have been working on my Community Supported Arts Program pieces but I was itching to draw after missing last Sunday. After a pencil sketch and one with vine charcoal, I dove right back into the ink. I love drawing with a brush. The barest hint of ink with wate...

People say stupid shit, hurtful shit, and demeaning shit. Sometimes they know they're doing it and other times it's so normalized that they don't even understand the impact. Children hear this shit and a lot is said directly to them.

I'm working on teapots, taking classes from master potter, Leon Nichols to improve my craftsmanship because at the end of the day I still have a respect for doing things well. Artists today can skimp on craftsmanship. It's no longer necessary to spend forever recreatin...

This is a week of finishing things. Physically handling some of my unfinished pieces seems to have triggered inspiration. A vintage dress I bought last year in a very faded yellow informed me it could easily be dyed with turmeric. It was right and I was able to match t...
