new teapot

Here is a teapot I made on commission just before Christmas. It is 16" long, c/5 oxidation stoneware, all handbuilt except for the "filler pot" on the rump. Pours nicely. I have been making small works since the Fall. I will be showing at Art of the Pot in Austin, Texas in May, so most of this work will be there.

I'll be a visiting artist at Anderson Ranch Art Center ( ) in Snowmass, CO January 15-18, 2010 during the January Studio Intensive. Over the course of the intensive period, two to three visiting artists will be available for studio visits. These artists, who are well known and respected in their fields, add a valuable element of critical insight into an individual's work.
Artists Joe Bova, Hung Liu and Rebeca Mendez will conduct studio visits during the 2010 intensive. Previous visiting artists/critics include Judy Pfaff, Stephan Westfall, Polly Apfelbaum, Brian Toll, Mala Iqbal and Sanford Biggers.
