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.)
