"Wood-firing is arguably the most revered and evocative of all pottery traditions. This show pays homage to North Carolina’s rich centuries-old tradition of wood-fired pottery. The exhibition showcases some great historic pieces from different regions and traditions within the state and places them in proximity to wonderful examples of more recent and contemporary pieces being made today. This juxtaposition allows the viewer to visually explore sometimes their similarities, sometimes their differences, and sometimes the similarities in their differences.
This is a broad survey of NC wood-fired pottery. A list of participating contemporary artists will be shared sometime prior to the exhibition opening on January 24 from 6:00-7:30 pm.
This exhibition will run through June 20, 2020, and some contemporary pieces will be available for purchase. Purchased pieces must remain in the show until it ends."
This is a two person exhibition in the main gallery at Blue Spiral 1 in downtown Asheville, NC. It features my newest woodfired ceramics paired with the landscape paintings of John Cleveland, Jr. and is on view through May 1, 2020.
This exhibition brings together a selection of contemporary North Carolina ceramics and work from the guest presenters at the Conference. This will be a unique opportunity for conference attendees to experience the wood firing community in a wider context. The exhibit will take place at the main conference site at STARworks in Star, NC.
