"Transcendent", an exhibition curated by Kathleen Hanna will highlight new work by Don Reitz, David Kuraoka and myself.  The show opens on Friday April 29th, 2011 and runs through June 12th at the wonderful Pence Gallery in Davis.
I met Don Reitz recently at NCECA.  He is 81 years old and a real dynamo not to mention a world-renowned artist.  I told him I was out of my league exhibiting with him and David Kuraoka.  
Within the world of ceramics it isn't unusual to meet ones Heros and even to know them.  A community of generosity and great spirit exists within the artform. 

With delivery date fast approaching, my creative process is at an accelerated pace  The cycle of making, firing, glazing and finally showing the works is coming to a resolution.  The range of emotions and states of mind that go into creating a new body of work are so vast.  It is quite a journey.
