Good fortune has come my way, examples of the newest work have been accepted for exhibition and sale in the upcoming show The Slip Cast Object Revisited at Denver’s prestigious Plinth Gallery. The affirmation of the acceptance reenforces my efforts to push the boundaries of ceramic casting past rote reproduction toward one-off objects. Thank yous to curator Jonathan Kaplan for mounting the show, and to juror Heather Mae Erickson for the thumbs up.
The work in The Slip Cast Object Revisited:
Two of the pieces are created from hand-layered strands of porcelain slip that are formed into open-walled vessels that have similar lower sections. They differ in form after separately cast elements are attached in the glaze firing.

The third Revisited entry is comprised of three teapots titled, 3 Tea Pots 3 Ways. The three tea pots all begin at the spigot of the same slip tank. They are created from the same porcelain slip and are formed in the same mold, and they also have distinctly different outcomes, ranging from the totally functional, to the purely contemplative, and one a half step in between the other two.
I’ll be attending The Slip Cast Object Revisited opening Friday June 5, please stop by and say hello if you are able to make it. I will be back at Plinth Gallery again on Saturday June 6th, giving a talk on my claywork, it’s free an open to the public, check the Plinth Facebook page for details.
