Ok, now my stuff...

Not everyone has seen my work from this summer, so here are some of the highlights. My focus was tactile functionality. I wanted to create some pieces that created interesting tactile experiences, but remained completely functional. Here are some of the pieces.

New Work

Finally have something to post up here!  I have three ceramic pieces in an art exchange show between three colleges in the Harrisonburg, VA area.  The show is called "Three" and is between Bridgewater College, Eastern Mennonite University, and my school, James Madison University.  There are a few students with work in the show from each of the three schools.    

One is a non-functional (dysfunctional?) combination between a cup and a teapot, titled "Both Ends Up." The other thrown piece is combinations of wheel-thrown vase forms attached end-to-end and glazed together in groups of three.  The wall-hanging is based upon an idea I had in a sculpture class, thinking of the idea of how things define a landscape, the way humans mark nature...and thus we have the tree that branches into telephone poles.  Let me know what you think!
