As The Crow Flies

Michael Kline

Here are a few items that will be in the Artisan Gallery show, "As the Crow Flies: NC Neighbors" that opens next week in Northampton, MA. The show features my work and the work of my "over the hill" neighbors, Michael Hunt and Naomi Dalglish. They may be over the hill as a crow flies, but far from over the hill with their pots!

La Mesa-Phoenix NCECA

3 gallon jar, 2008

local stoneware, woodfired

special wax resist brushwork

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.

Here are some pictures of the exhibit "To Have and To Hold" at the J. Michael Kohler ArtSpace Gallery. Thanks to Amy Chaloupka for sending the pictures of the show. It looks fantastic. I wish I could have gone to the opening, but Wisconsin seems so far away! Other exhibitors include my friend from the Asparagus Valley Potters Guild Francine Ozereko, as well as MN potter Jeff Oestreich, fellow blogger Diana Fayt, California research chemist and artist Katherine Dube, and NH potter Megan Bogonovich. Here is the link to the ArtSpace website with info on purchasing work from the show. If you live in the area check out the show for me.

The show will be up until April 5th. Link
