I am fortunate to have my work included amongst so many great artists in the 2020 Alaska Biennial at the Anchorage Museum here in Alaska.  This piece is titled “Idle” and is an 8 foot long representation of a stuffed polar bear. It is made of fired ceramic, paint, stains, graphite, wood, and steel. It is intended to lay on the floor much like a toppled, discarded taxidermy mount without its base.

The work is now on view at the Anchorage Museum through Spring but if you would like to take a virtual look around the exhibition, check out the museum’s link here.

Hot Rookie Exhibition – Icheon, South Korea

I also just got back from a quick trip to Korea, to see my work in the Hot Rookie exhibition that is up in conjunction with the 2013 Gyeonggi International Ceramics Biennale in Icheon, South Korea.  I feel very fortunate to have been included in such an amazing show.  The exhibition runs until mid-November, so if you are in the area, please go check it out!


Welcome to Alaska

For those who do not know, I recently finished my residency at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana, and accepted a job opportunity at the University of Alaska, Anchorage.  I miss Helena like crazy, but Alaska so far is a great place to start new and is full of stunning scenery and wildlife!  It’s “The Last Frontier”! Come visit me- it’s not as far away as you think!  (Yes it is.)
