November 26th, 2008 · 7 Comments

Calexico last night

November 18th, 2008 · Comments Off on Calexico last night

Cut and Paste Ceramics

November 11th, 2008 · 1 Comment

As some of you know, there was a time in my life when I made a whole lot of pottery (mainly earthen and stoneware thrown on a wheel). I saw this and it blew my mind… Each item here has been individually thrown (in at least 2 parts), trimmed, and then cut apart and reassembled […]
