First, I have to show you some pics of my recent show here in St. Louis. St. Louis Community College's Meramec Art Gallery is a wonderful 43' x 43' square space.
I filled the gallery with 110 pieces which is at the limit for the gallery's lighting. It was a wonderful show and everyone had great things to say about it.
The show was set up with very rigid symmetry.
Here is my infamous "Ham" pot. Few people have seen this piece and boy do they love it!
This "Snow on Spring Blossoms" is one of my most beautiful pots.
This is a relatively recent piece. Perhaps I should say it is a "recently finished" piece. These Horseshoe Crab tiles have been floating about the studio for 15 years. I recently refired the tiles and was finally happy with them and I immediately made the frame. I ask you; have you ever seen a frame- any frame- to equal this one?
Love the gourds...
and the tiles..
I am going to make more tiles like these.
These two "Oak Tree" pots will one day become lamps. It takes me years to get around to finishing things.
One shot of the opening of the show. This is Mr. Ric Ege. He has perhaps the best antique shop I have ever seen- R.Ege Antiques. He knows something about everything!
These three guys are collectively known as Parkside Productions shot a video of the show for me. The video is on YouTube.
Once again, my buddy Ray Hunter, took some still pictures for me.
As long as I have your eyes, look at these three expressionist woodblock prints. I would love to identify these prints and have been trying to do so for thirty years.
The certainly look German.
And these photos of this wonderful pot were in my update folder so I am showing them to you. I tried to ID this pot for twenty years and two people ID'ed it for me on the same day when I put a request for identification notice on the web a few years ago.
1920s made in the Basque village of Cibourne by three men, Etienne Vilotte, Louis Floutier and Lukas- first name unknown. Bottom is stamped "V E Cibourne". The stamp on this one is indistinct- that is why I had a hard time IDing it. Killer decoration. Hitler would have loved the classical revival look.
Oh baby am I inspired to make wisteria pots!
This is the first year of blooms on my Greek Temple trellis in my backyard. I am going to train that vine! (No small feat with wisteria!)
Lately, I have taken a serious interest in figurative sculpture and I made the aquaintance of Harry Weber who has been providing me with guidance and resources.
Here is Harry working on a piece of Tony DeMarco in his prime.
Here is a piece I am working on my wife as "The Teacher at 6:30". More pictures of the full piece next time.
