Gustin Workshop

I just got back this weekend from a two day workshop with Chris Gustin at Cub Creek. Cub Creek houses about 4 to 5 resident ceramic artst in Appomattox, VA. It was only a couple hours drive and Chris Gustin work is a really big influence when I was starting out. It was a great workshop. Met new people, learn new things and overall great time. Gustin make large sculptural forms. He starts out with a thrown base, alters and then coil builds. The finish form is about 3 to 5 feet in height. Some of what I learned and saw might come into my work. I will at least play around with some ideas.

Good news

I don't update this thing as much as I should. I've been really busy in September with teaching. Making some great work too. I have some good news. In my previous posts I talked about getting into Strictly Functional. The opening was last Friday and you can check out the show online at their website. The good news is I got a purchase award. I will be in Clay Times magazine permanet collection. I was so excited when I got the news. I don't subcribe to clay times, so I checked out the website and there it was on the cover. I went to the store and picked up several copies. It's a good feeling to have your work recognize like this. I guess i'm doing something right. Go rush out and pick up a copy of the sept./oct. issue. I'll try to get some pictures up of recent work soon.
