I’m looking forward to being back on Mockernut Road between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro, NC. I’ll be there for a long weekend, the first in August, to join my friends Doug Dotson and Ronan Peterson for this festive sale in Doug’s Studio.
I shared this studio with Doug in 2001 and 2002 and we took the first steps in figuring out how to fire his newly built soda kiln. It was a great place to work amidst the tall trees and boulders of granite.

I’ll be teaching a couple of workshops this spring and summer.
The first will be in May at the New Hampshire League of Craftsmen.
Alteration and Decals
This will be a 2-day hands-on class covering altering thrown forms and designing, printing, applying, and firing laser jet decals.
New Hampshire League of Craftsmen
May 19 & 20
The July workshop is at Claymakers in Durham, NC. This was the studio where I taught my first class ever back in 1999. I’m excited be back!
Juxtaposition: Earthenware Form and Surface
This will be 5 days of hands-on throwing, altering, making lids, spout, and handles, applying terra sigiallata, and glazing.
When Naomi Cleary and Co. at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia dreamed up this show they didn’t just how perfectly it fits my lifestyle. Not only is it a cup show with coffee in the title, they served freshly roasted (and brewed) coffee in the aforementioned cups at the opening. AND each cup purchased comes with a complimentary 1/4 pound of coffee from Old City Coffee.
Coffee has often been an impetus for my work, not only a stimulant. In addition to mugs, I am currently working on the next generation of the Stoveside Coffee Pot that I’ve made in the past. The next version will be a stack of cubes to brew coffee through and into. Look for photos in the coming weeks. Enjoy a browse of Cups and Coffee. By the way, the announcement above was made by The Clay Studio, it appears that they made a personalized invitation for each artist in the show. Pretty classy. Be sure to enlarge the announcement to read the description of the show.
