The pots I am currently shipping to my gallery friends are special to me because I started working on those series early in the summer. This was one year after moving to the mountains to give up teaching & curating in Atlanta in order to make work full-time.
took a break mid-summer to work on some new
illustrations and patterns of illustrations at my drawing table.
This was really the first attempt at covering pots in patterned
illustrations since I switched to earthenware, and I am excited
how the first pots turned out.
The new illustrations of instrument
players have also been very well received, and I've already
started drawing the dancers that obviously must follow them!
During the summer we also had our first vegetable garden and
started restoring our pastures, which were important first steps
in breathing life into the old farm that we bought and moved to in
GreenEville, TN. It was a busy exhausting summer but we have loads
of pottery and fresh pickles to show for it!
