People have been asking me if I am retired. Nope. Never.
This is what my friend Shelagh Rogers had to say about my retirement…
What a ride it’s been. You are an amazing artist with the best support team in the world.
In your art, you have provoked in the most mischievous and strongest terms.
You have extended ancient processes and forms and brought them into the 20th and 21st centuries. And you have created such beauty.Shelagh Rogers
So retire. No. Making Art yes, and writing yes. Playing pool yes.
For the past two and a half years, I have been working on a book. It is a history of 50 years as a studio potter. My work, my way. My intention is to use this history as encouragement for young aspiring potters. It will be on-line and free at my website, and we are working out the details on printing hard copies for those that love to have something in their hands. All this should happen soon, and I will let you know when it is up and running.
When I get this finished, I will once again head into the studio and make some new work. I will let you know when new pieces are in our gallery. Think fall. This is retirement!
