More Than Mud

The “More Than Mud” exhibit at Studio 1219 will feature Jason Stier, John Henry and myself. The show runs from August 16 to October 2, 2011. The Opening Reception for “More Than Mud” is August 19 from 6-9 pm. Studio 1219 is located in downtown Port Huron.

The pieces on exhibit will feature my new “Loft Art” series which captures textures and layers that resemble the noise of our lives. Some of the industrial pieces have been fired four to six times. Firings range from oxidation, reduction, Raku and pit firing.

You will be surprised with the range and the mixed media of the work. I have reached back to my college days and started to paint canvas using oil pastels, watercolors and chalks. Interesting fibers, ceramic disgards and a little bit of “junk” are incorporated into these pieces. Experiments with low fire glazes, stains and metallics create a unique body of work.

I hope you can join me at the Opening Reception on August 19 from 6 – 9 pm. All guests will receive a tiny treasure while supplies last.
