I've got a joint show coming up in late April at the Stove Factory Gallery in Charlestown. I'm sharing space with my friend Dara Pannebaker, who is a fine painter and one of the organizers of the Artists Group of Charlestown. I joined the AGC two years ago after selling at their September craft fair. A fine group of artists, not only talented but very nice folks. So ... though I live about 90 minutes away, I am, indeed, a Charlestown Artist.
I'm putting together work for the show, and expect to fire once or twice more between now and then. Last week's firing produced a very nice Shino- and ash-glazed slab tray (pictured at top), so I thought I'd make a few more and see how they do. I rolled them out yesterday, handled them and slashed and pressed some decorations. Now they're drying. On to other things while they dry.
