New Things: Welcome to the Family

I just brought this mug home to meet the family. It was made by Maria Dondero and holds a latte and a half. Maria had a show of new work at TCS last year and was an absolute delight to work with.  I will enjoy using this mug.

Travel: Skipping Town

While we have two new shows opening this Friday at The Clay Studio, I will be in Kansas City at Red Star Studios. Ceramic Arts Daily wishes they were gonna be there too.
I will be there for Daniels show but also will be hanging out with pals Meredith Host, Rain Harris and Paul Donnelly. Stay tuned for sneak peaks of their studios and latest work as well as pictures from Daniels opening and general Kansas City tourist shots. 

Discovery: Makoto Kagoshima

I just discovered Japanese artist Makoto Kagoshima thanks to a plate a day and I am kinda in love. I think I connect with the floral imagery as it is sort of make-believe like the flowers and berries I draw. 
The images are from an exhibition at biotape in Japan. Thanks to Jollygoo for the instal images.

Work: Flora At Schaller Gallery

Check out the work in this show. Schaller Gallery is a relatively new online ceramics gallery that has already had shows of many really good artists, some of whom I have been trying to get at TCS for a while. Let me know who you like best in this exhibition.
