so a few days ago i finished casting the work for my show.
ten minutes ago i was carting the very
last two pieces to bisque for my show down to the kiln room. and wouldn't you know it... i slipped on a push pin that was lying on the ground, whacked my ankle on the side of the cart something rotten . As i fell towards the floor in the cartoonish "i just stepped on a banana peel" style i caught my balance by crushing the very last piece i had cast. damn it all!

so i guess it is back to casting that one last piece.

ps. my computer just ate my website and also is playng hide and seek with practically all my files. i love life

Friday the 13th

The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia.
It's a specialized form of triskaidekaphobia, a phobia of the number thirteen.

You haven't truly lived until you've seen Crispin Glover's amazing dance sequence in
Friday the 13th : The Final Chapter (Part 4). Trust me on this one.

Ceramic mustache mania

This is from Garth Clark's website. I guess mustaches are so new they are old.

Richard Slee

Winner of the 2001 Jerwood Applied Arts Prize, Richard Slee (b.1946) is one of the most interesting and significant ceramicists working today. Richard Slee is the most consistently innovative ceramic artist of his generation, a restless neo-Pop artist in the genre of Jeff Koons and Paul McCarthy, although, to put this in context, he evolved and refined his highly witty style and satiric vocabulary in the early 1970's long before either of these two artists arrived on the scene. His work is influencing the new generation of makers with his sleek, sly and meticulous objects that play in the cracks between function, design, decorative art and domestic tools. This exhibition, following a critically acclaimed book and retrospective exhibition, reveals the artist at the height of his expression.

At this point I have deciced to refer to this project as the" canopy" I think we should be expanding on our titles. I have another version where the canopy is being invaded by the gar fish. What do you think?

How the West was Won

Here's a piece for a plate show - do you think they will notice that it is mostly plastic? - I am becoming a big fan of epoxy.
