this is one of two of my pieces going in the Skyline Ceramics Department Show at CCACA. The other one is in the kiln, as I write. Nothing like waiting to the last minute, in clay time.
The California Conference for the advancement of Ceramic Art is a fun, if intense, collective of ceramic shows that virtually takes over the town of Davis, CA (April 28th thru May 1st). As we are nearing d-day in trying to organize and get ready; it's all about racing around getting pieces done, photographing them, building and painting new pedestals, packing and organizing or the show. The circus is going on the road! It really is a lights, camera, action situation. It's fun,,,and exhausting! but mostly fun. It's not often you can hang out with a "town" full of ceramic people, see old friends and make some new ones. We are planning a blogger happy hour on Saturday - so any bloggers out there attending, please leave a comment so we can get you in.
A lot of work goes into setting up the show. Tiffany Schmierer is the leader of the pack. And a good leader at that. Tiffany runs of the Ceramics Department at Skyline and spearhead's the massive efforts that go into making this possible - I've written about her many times. She is a pleasure to work with and I feel lucky to be a part of the team of people involved in putting on the show for Skyline. We will be sharing space this year with Foothill College and Merritt College! more on this soon...
Wish us luck!
