One of my all-time favourite ceramic artists recently had an exhibition at Willock & Sax Gallery in Alberta. Although I didn't get to see the exhibition in person, there are quite a few images on their web site. Have a look: http://www.willockandsaxgallery.com/
You can see why I am a fan of his work...his textural glazes are incredible!

I have been creating these hand built vessels, and am loving the results! I posted some previously, but here are some more that weren't yet completed.
I am very proud of these pieces, and I feel a renewed sense of excitement when I go in to the studio to work on them!
Let me know what you think!

Although The AGO is closed for total reconstruction, (It is going to be amazing...see above rendering) the shop, which has a nice selection of my smaller sized lidded vessels remains open online! How convenient. Visit their website http://shop.ago.net/ and choose DESIGN on the left-hand menu to see what is available of my work.

With the start of a new year, I always seem to evaluate what I have been doing, and where I have been heading in regards to my work. The latter part of last year was very much like this, as I desperately wanted to spend more time on my sculptural pieces, but found I was much too busy with orders to do this.
As a result, I have decided to take this year to work on my paintings, and more sculptural expressive pieces. I will not be supplying as many galleries for the next year. I have a major show coming up in September, and am looking forward to working on that. I have added a couple of photos of new pieces that I recently made. This week, I began working on a few more, and can already see an exciting progression. I would love to hear what you think about this new work.
