Two entries juried into "State of Clay"



A letter came yesterday from the Lexington (MA) Arts and Crafts Society that two of my three submissions to the 7th biennial "State of Clay" show will be included in the show opening April 22 at the LACS gallery. Doug Casebeer, director of the ceramics program at Anderson Ranch in Colorado, was the juror.
I've had work in the past two "State of Clay" shows, but this is the first time two pieces were selected. It's always a good show, with work from around the state and also from potters and other clay artists who once lived in the state. Total entries were 394 pieces from 139 applicants, with 81 pieces selected for the show from 72 makers.
The show will run from April 22 through Sunday, May 20. The opening reception will be May 6, at 2 p.m. Doug Casebeer will also do a one-day demo workshop the day before.
For more information and a look at pots from the past few shows, go to www.stateofclay.com.
I'll post photos of the two entries that were juried into the show.

Congrats!!! Beautiful entries, how could they NOT select them :) I'm such a fan of bottles. I love going to Meredith's house and seeing all of hers. Maybe she should add to her collection, haha!

Thanks, everyone. In a cold (but not snowy) January on quiet old Cape Cod, when the studio is cold but the pots continue to come off the wheel, it's nice to get that kind of notice.
