I’m off tomorrow to the American Pottery Festival at Northern Clay Center, Minneapolis. I’ll talk with MN potter Kip O’Krongley about her use of a die cutter for stencils on clay. The clay people, shop talk, and good pottery at APF will be wonderful. My die cutter work slowedwhile I finished the APF works, photographed, inventoried, and shipped. The home page on my web site has links to the gallery of works for that and the upcoming Charlie Cummings Cup show. All majolica works. There’s info about my cheap-and-dirty photo setup used to take the images on the Handouts page of my web site.
I finished the cups for the Craft Emergency Relief Fund/Crimson Laurel Gallery cup show later this fall, curated by educator and low-fire potter, Martina Lantin. I was very excited about using die-cut stencils, and LOVE my Zing die cutter. More when I get back from Minnesota. Natural Disaster: Fire below. See the gallery of all cups for the Disaster, Relief, and Resiliency show at Crimson Laurel (11/1-12/25/13) here:
