The times they are a-changin'

 For about 20 years I have sent out postcard invitations to my open studio shows, and now my mailing list is so large it has become cost prohibitive to mail out so many cards.  And now with email and online connections it seems silly to continue. My problem is I don't want to loose track of all the people on my mailing list so I am asking everyone if they are interested in keeping in touch with me to please sign up for my email newsletter with I will use to invite people to my shows. I promise, your contact information is kept private, and you can remove your name at anytime.

So sign up for my email notices and you will have a chance of winning this Cedar Waxwing Tile!  If you are already subscribed to my email newsletter, just email me and I will enter your name into the drawing!


It is with some reluctance I am giving up on postcards (except for very special shows).  People have told me that they have a collection of my cards because they love the pictures of my work, and it is like having a piece.  So  I looking into getting images of my work printed on greeting cards and hope to have some available soon!

Introducing Pottery: The Complete Guide

I just got the word from Dan Rhode that his new book is on its way to the UK (he lives there now), and will be available November, 2010. He is  not sure when it will be available in the US, hopefully soon.The book is titled Introducing Pottery: The Complete Guide.

It's really funny because the pottery book in every clay persons library is by Daniel Roades, Clay and Glazes for the Potter.  This is considered the potters bible, first published in 1957 and still the go-to-book for all thing clay.

Dan Rhode and Dan Roades, sounds the same but diffident spellings and generations--who knows maybe the new book will become the next go to book for all things clay. I hope so!

My section in the book will be on my process for making large carved and molded wall platters. I can't wait to see it, I'm really excited and honored to be in his book!  Thanks Dan!

Here is a cute picture of Dan with his new book.
