It has been several months since I have posted here! Since the end of the holiday rush I have been busy making pottery for a new gallery where I am selling my pottery in Brooklyn, NY called MOCIUN. I have been making new pottery for spring shows and the Artists Market here in VT as well. Here are a few photos taken from Instagram of recent work, both finished and in progress.

This group of recent teapots are defined by hard and soft lines. I’m working on making sharp and soft lines in both form and texture. There are two different aqua glazes here. One is a transparent green aqua with a fine crackle – that is often hard to see in photos – the other is a more opaque blue aqua; both are on white clay.
These glazes are gorgeous in person, but very hard to photograph, there is much reflection going on in the surface of the pots. I think the angular forms hide the light reflection better than the curved forms. Still working on it. My white and yellow glazes are much easier to photograph.

I’m catching up on posting new pottery that I made before the holiday rush of December. This first group are oval faceted ice cream dishes.

These are some November 2012 pots – I’m working on cutting down the reflections on the photos of shiny green pots. I’ll be photographing some more recent pots this week. I just unloaded my final kiln of 2012 readying for the Holiday Artist Market in Burlington next weekend.

My studio is open to the public this weekend from 10-5 on Saturday and Sunday. Artists from all over the state open their studios twice a year in late May and early October. Feel free to come by and see what I’ve been working on. I cleaned the place and everything.
We are at 18 Elm Street in Waterbury. Look for the yellow signs directing you to our house.
