lidded jar
January 2019
This is one of the pieces from my recent solo exhibition, Trusting My Intuition, at the Jonathon Bancroft-Snell Gallery in London, Ontario.

The jar is stoneware, fired to cone ten reduction, with a post firing addition of 23K gold leaf, and aluminum leaf. It stands about 34 cm tall.

During the winter months I like to spend time on some longer term projects. It's a good time to do glaze research, for instance, or to work on some new forms or ideas. One thing I'm seriously considering for 2019 is to switch from cone ten reduction firings in my propane kiln to cone six oxidation firing in an electric kiln. Lots to consider!

I currently have work on exhibit in two different group shows at the Tom Thomson Art Gallery, in Owen Sound, ON. There is a photograph in Media, and a large ceramic work in the exhibition, Snowed In: Selections from the Gallery's Collection.

  • Upcoming Events:
    • Art in the Garden July 13th, 10:00 am to 4 pm at Keppel Croft Gardens in Georgian Bluffs, ON. The once a year, not to be missed art event at the remarkable Keppel Croft Gardens.
  • All the best for 2019!
