Upcoming Shows and Events:
HOLIDAY POTTERY POP-UP
Friday and Saturday, December 11th and 12th, 10 am to 4 pm each day
1530 Randolph Road, Alfred Station, NY 14803
I will have a display of my mugs, bowls, vases, leaf dishes, ornaments, and pins in our van at the top of the driveway for socially safe shopping. If you are avoiding the mall and would like to buy something real that is more personal and meaningful, rather than ordering online, here is your chance! Self serve! For convenience the sales tax will be included in the prices so that you will get a discount and not have to do the 8.5% calculation. I will leave a small box for cash or checks. (Sorry, no credit cards this time.) Directions from the stoplight in Alfred: Go .7 miles through the center of Alfred. Turn right on Randolph Road (sign also says "Lighthouse Ministries"). Go 1.2 miles. At the top of the hill, look for a wood house on the right with a deck and a silver van display parked near the road. If you can’t make it, please contact me at 607.587.9877 for other arrangements. There is also a display of my work at the Canacadea Country Store in Alfred Station.
My teaching philosophy involves helping people feel inspired and connected to their creative imaginations. I encourage them in a non-judgmental way, try to expose them to as many influences as possible, help them with specific techniques that apply to their ideas, and emphasize that mistakes can be very productive.
I teach occasional one or two day workshops from my Boston studio. Each has a different theme or project. I also teach workshops outside my studio at various places such as art centers, clay studios, or schools. These usually are more related to my personal work, with discussion of how I follow a path of ideas, how my personal philosophy and motivations have evolved over many years of working in clay, demonstrations of techniques I use in my own work, and a PowerPoint presentation showing work by other artists who approach the subject of nature in a different way than I do.
Please contact me if you are interested in taking a workshop, or if you have a venue where I could present a workshop. Here's a video of me working in the studio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvbWoOWIWUE
