La Mesa @ NCECA pt 1

Michael Kline

Here is the first in a series of videos I shot of Santa Fe Clay's wonderful La Mesa exhibit. It is short. For those of you who haven't seen this show before with your own eyes, it's about a 50 foot long table (maybe longer)full of tableware! This video is a little choppy from where I sit, maybe it will flow better on your computer.

I filmed the whole table as I walked around. There are more videos to come. With my time limited I have chosen to just upload the videos one at a time. They are available in HD and take a while for me to upload. You can watch in HD by clicking the video and going to youTube.

More to follow!

Here is the piece I shipped to Phoenix, AZ for Santa Fe Clay's annual La Mesa show at the 43rd NCECA conference. Another bag wall pot, with fairly heavy [for my kiln] ash deposit near the top shoulder. The handles seem a little small, now that I look at it in this photo, but still ample, I guess, to lift this 3 gallon jar. It has a little incised daisy in there somewhere. Be on the lookout for the show if you're going to Phoenix. I'm sorry that I won't be there this year, but next year I'm planning on heading up to Philadelphia.
