- For those of you in central Oregon, a new gallery in Tumalo (near Bend), is now carrying my work: ArtWorks! is located at 19889 8th St in Tumalo.
- The marvelous ceramics collective that I joined relatively recently, Dirty Dishes, has moved to a sweet new space, but still in the Alberta District. The new address is 3012 NE Alberta. Kierstin Oliver, owner and operator, says “Dirty Dishes, home to Stone’s Throw Ceramics, is a space created for local potters and ceramists to show and sell their wares. Located in the heart of the Alberta Arts District, Dirty Dishes is a potters’ paradise packed with the whimsy and warmth of hand-formed clay.” Check out her website dirtydishesstudio.com for info on Kierstin and the other artists she represents.
- And the most exciting news of all…my piece which was included in this year’s Strictly Functional Pottery National (my sweet little jar you see to the left), has been featured in the Autumn 2011 issue of Clay Times. See it here (click on “View our dynamic digital edition — FREE!” and flip to pg 18), or purchase an issue and receive a studio poster insert, including my piece! It’s so exciting and such an honor to be featured on a poster. Clay Times has also decided to publish a 2012 wall calendar, which will include important “planned events for the clay community — plus eye candy from this year’s SFPN show.” I don’t see them yet, but they should be available to order very soon on the Clay Times online store, www.claytimes.com/store.html.
