I'm sorry, my friends, for not posting in so long. Life has taken a major series of turns. It's exciting!
Long and short, my lovely lady Luba and I decided last year it was time for a major change. The glamour and attraction of city life had faded and we had a major hankerin' for some tree time and some serious fixin' to pottery-make. You see already my language is affected.
Speaking of pots, there are two must-see pottery shows in the
Southeast this coming weekend. A good distance apart, so we'll let it
slide if you just hit one.
We are showing with a huge, gigantic, ultra-mega large group of artists at Fired Works in Macon, Georgia. A quick drive from Atlanta. Did we mention there are a lot of artists?
Also, we were tickled pink to be invited to show with a group of our pottery heroes up in North Carolina at the Madison County Potters Market.
We were actually tickled bright red, a deep purple, a glowing orange
and every other kind of tickled. This is a top notch group and we're a
little overwhelmed to be included.
OK, back to changes. Basically, we lined up an awesome group of conspirators to take the reins at MudFire, allowing us to head north into the hills real soon. We are confident that MudFire is on a newly re-energized path to even more mega-awesomeness. And we have some big plans for the future to fine tune this year.
In the meantime we'll be making pots and growing food (sans-Monsanto) up in Appalachia. Note field. Note tractor. Here we come.
Shout out to my studio mate @melissaweisspottery for being a felicitator for equality and good. She, and Elijah, have created a wonderful space, in Asheville, NC, for artists to work, that’s respectful, safe, and welcoming to all. Southside Studios. I’m thankful to be a part of it. #southsidestudios @kylecarpenterpottery #studiopottery #ncclay #828isgreat #asheville #pottery #ceramics #セラミックス #陶器 #קֵרָמִיקָה #céramique #poterie #cerámica #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #krukmakeri #handmade #craft #contemporarycraft #cultivatingcraft #shcg #functionalpottery
