SoFlo Ceramics Show at the Armory Art Center

Just got home from delivering artwork to the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach and noticed one of my pieces on the postcard for the SoFlo Ceramic Show. Opening Reception July 22 6-8pm. Very cool indeed. The images accompanying this entry are the pieces I brought to the Armory for the show. They are approximately 13" x 8 x 7". I am having a lot of fun exploring the idea of the bed in my pieces lately. The bed plays such a large part in our lives. I remember as a kid getting sent to dad's house with my sisters and the three of us having to share a single bed. We'd pile onto the mattress utilizing every square inch. Also, the fact that I deal with migraines and these hateful headaches dictate that I am confined to a darkened room in bed several days out of a month. So for now I am exploring figures in bed and I really hope you can make it to the Armory to check out the show, remember they also have fantastic classes and studio space.

Podcast Interview with Ricë Freeman Zachary

Ricë Freeman Zachary interviewed me last week for a podcast that is now posted on her website. Please feel free to listen. Let me start by saying that I have been a long time fan of Ricë's. If you are familiar with craft books and magazines hers will be a name you will recognize. I know you'll find her interesting.

It was a fun conversation about making art, how to market yourself and your art. Do yourself a favor and download all of her podcasts. I have listened to every single one of them. It's like sitting back and listening to pals chatting about everything from art, crafts, publishing, you name it. Hope you enjoy it.
