I’ll try to post more than once a year! I’ve been busy putting together a solo-show at Nebraska Wesleyan (April 2016), preparing our house to be sold, and moving cross-country.
In May, we relocated to Virginia to be closer to my wife’s family and old friends.
Since the move, I’ve gotten representation with a gallery in Williamsburg, Virginia, about half an hour from my new studio.
Check out coverage of the show in the Virginia Gazette by Heather Bridges.
It’s been quiet on the blog because it’s been so very busy these last few months.
Highlights include a trip to Utah to visit the family and attend the Clay Crewe reunion (my high school ceramics program).
I have a few collaborations and commissions coming up; I’ve been traveling for those, too, and I look forward to sharing more with you about the collaboration in the coming months.
For now, here’s a teaser: today I delivered a few pieces to Kiechel Fine Art here in Lincoln.
Most people take shots of their family loaded up in the car.
Me? I’ve got my new (to me) kiln in the back of the mini-van.
I’m looking forward to seeing how the kiln fires and the work that will come out of it!
The past few months have been a whirlwind Finishing work
Packing it up
Loading it onto a pallet and shipping it off.
A week later, here it is, installed:
This is my show at the Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven, CT. Now through April 3, you can see the works I’ve been working on at the Bemis and over the last few months.
I was fortunate enough to extend my residency at the Bemis. This week, it’s coming to an end.
While I’m sad to have that time end, I’m excited to move into my new space in Lincoln:
Big spaces call for big works. I’m very excited to share with you what will be coming out of this space in the next few weeks and months.
The best part of moving studios?
More time with this guy:
A few shots of my work in progress at the Bemis.
A few weeks ago, this was published on CFile. In the article, Justin Crowe offers a thoughtful review of my work.
Last night I took part in a happening at the Bemis. Six diners were present, and they in turn invited six who were absent.
Here are some initial shots from that meal; I contributed the dishes.
Looking past the set table, onto the windows of the installation space in the Bemis.
Every element for the dinner was made by a Bemis resident.

No, I’m not making the move toward installation works.
This is what I call my “Kill Room,” a set up for grinding my works. The plastic sheet keeps the water in, and the basin collects the water so I can recycle as I work.
Now if I could only find a way to make a Kill Room (and a piece) as large as the entire Okada Sculpture Facility….
This little guy visited me this past weekend (he visits me every weekend).
I wonder what he’s dreaming about?
