News from around the studio

jar
January 2018
We've been getting a good, old fashioned winter this year, with lots of snow, and very cold temperatures. I don't think I'll be doing a firing this month in my old kiln — there will be a bit of snow clearing to do first!

I enjoy the winter season here, and usually go for at least a couple of walks during the day whether it is stormy or not. It's also a good time of year to plan ahead, and work on some longer term pieces in the studio, so there is still lots to do.



A lot of the pieces I'll be working on this month will be put aside for a solo exhibition I'll be having in November at the Jonathon Bancroft-Snell Gallery in London, Ontario.

I'm pleased to have several photographs included in a new book on contemporary photography, PhotoViz, by the Berlin based publisher, Gestalten. From the book description, "PhotoViz explores the intersection of photography, infographics, and data visualization. Combining cutting-edge technologies and classic photographic techniques enables us to tell stories and visualize information more powerfully and compactly than ever."

  • Upcoming Events:
    • Art in the Garden The not to be missed annual art sale at the remarkable Keppel Croft Gardens, this year held on July 14th
    • Fifty Years in Clay Jonathon Bancroft-Snell Gallery London ON opening November 7, 2018. This exhibition will mark my fifty years of working with clay as a potter.
  • Happy New Year and all the best for 2018!
