March is shaping up to be a busy month. Several events are happening now, recently passed, or coming soon. These are some of the pieces of mine in the shows listed below.

New Instructional DVD Pre-Order


Ceramic Arts Daily  just announced the upcoming release of the Hybrid Pottery: Throwing, Altering, Assembling. It was a great experience spending a few days in Columbus, OH last spring and shooting this video with the CAD editorial staff their video guru, Kevin Davison.

I demonstrated a pitcher, a box, a teapot, an oil bottle, and a serving dish for the camera. I also show mixing, decanting, and applying terra sigillata as well as underglaze and glaze.

A clip of throwing and assembling a diamond shaped trivet for an oil bottle can be viewed here. I hope you enjoy watching.

The DVD can be pre-ordered now for shipment later in March.


A New Magazine Article Coming Next Week

This is the first page of an article I wrote for the July/August issue of Pottery Making Illustrated. The magazine should hit mailboxes in a week. Until then (and after), the rest of the article can be viewed on the Publications page of this website. It is a step-by-step explanation of the techniques I use in making boxes.

I’d like to thank my good friends Niel Hora for his honest and very helpful proofreading skills and Fred Lower for photographing the process.
