NC Ceramics inviatational

I an happy to be included in this show, NC Ceramics Invitational currently in the Touchable Gallery at the Duke Eye Center. I have a particular interest in this because my father was an ophthalmologist and started at the McPherson Hospital in Durham.  Some of you have seen this piece before, I've had this triptych for a while now. It's been in our house for a couple of years, although it is still for sale and now it is in this show along with two bird platters.

Summer Dream, triptych. 20" high x 30" wide, (aprox.) Cathy Kiffney

First part of Mayo Commission

I've been working on these panels for a couple of weeks. This is just the start of the under-glaze. I am just a tad nervous about these 3 panels...the possibility of cracks when fired. They are large-- 24" high. OK . I am petrified. Please send good wishes!

Coincidence, you decide

working on large bowl/platter, 20" diam. Cathy Kiffney

I'm not claiming I knew, but is is just a coincidence that I started painting this hawk in a super big bowl yesterday? This is one of four large 20" platters for the Mayo Clinic project.
