Gravy boat

Awhile back I got invited to be part of the 50 Gravy boats show
As soon as I got invited I made 4 different gravy boats. And only these two made it to my final list.
This shows have many artist that I really look up to so I was really exited,
Hopefully I can get some good responds.
also this is a really good exercise for me to make a form that I never worked before, 
really open up different possibility for my work.
so I made a couple more after the first batch and it's totally different from the first batch, 
so from two gravy boat Jason and other friends pick the first one (yellow glaze)
everyone think the yellow glaze looks better, even though I like the second gravy boat better 
but I have to agree with my friends...
Anyway, I can't wait to see all the awesome gravy boats,
and if you want more info you can visit DVC's website here.

The show will be at DVC and online from 11/1-11/23

Once upon a time: teacher and student

I was surprised to notice that I haven't update my blog for awhile...
so I thought just to share what I saw last week in Trax gallery
last week was the opening for their show "Once upon a time: teacher and student"
it is John Neely from Logan, Utah and Forrest Lesch-Middelton from Petaluma, CA
I always admire John Neely's work and his skill making such a well function teapot with simple form but with strong present. I was so happy to be able to see his work in person, too bad I couldn't afford it...
And Forrest Lesch-Middelton's work is so well done, you can also see he have a strong influence by John Neely but still be able to put his own idea and evolve the form. 
I was not able to take many photos because the room was so packed...
the show still up till Nov,7 if you miss it. you should go!!!
