Hi de ho Art lovers. I’m getting real excited about my upcoming show at the Oakland Museum of Ceramics. I thought that I would share some images of smaller work that will be included to pique your interest in the show.
I hope that you can make the opening on Sunday, October 15th from 5pm-8pm.
The museum is located at 4401 San Leandro Street, Oakland, CA 94601. (Please call, text or email if you plan to visit before or after the opening reception.) My email address is my first name @ my first name last name dot com. (e.g. email@example.com)
The Smaart Gallery and Studio has been around since 2012. Steve Allen, the driving force behind the studio and the gallery, has been a huge boon to the ceramic art community in San Francisco. Be sure to check out his other shows and if you have the inclination to get your hands dirty and want to learn more about clay, his studio and classes are great place to learn and grow.
After months of procrastination deliberation, I have finally decided on the winner in the name-the-totem contest. The winning title is: Making Sense.
The winner is being notified and will soon be the proud owner of original artwork of his choice.
I want to thank everyone who participated in my contest. All who entered will receive an email that will entitle them to a big discount on bottles. (If you entered, check your inbox in the next couple of days.)
I received over 50 entries in my Name That Totem contest. It’s been a couple of weeks, and I still cannot decide on my favorite entry. I certainly have learned a lot of things (Otolaryngoloists are specialists in in ear, nose and throat and shy guys are timid troublemakers in various video games are among other useful facts that I acquired from this contest.) But I am torn because there are so many good names to choose from.
If you entered, you should be getting an email from me in the next week or so announcing the winner of the contest. If you didn’t win the grand prize, don’t worry. Everyone who entered is a winner. I will offer anyone who entered, a discounted price on my bottles.
All of the entries are listed below. (If a title appears more than once, it was submitted by more than one person.)
I have posted my latest totem below, with the very unsexy title of, “Totem #5”
If you can come up with a better title and I choose it, I will happily give you a smaller piece of my work. Please submit any title suggestions in the comments below, in an email directly to me or better yet, come see the totem in person and drop off your title suggestion at my studio.
I want to invite anyone interested in seeing my work to come by my studio this weekend, November 5-6. Open studio hours are noon to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday. Our address is 3265 17th Street, we’re on the third floor. There should be a doorman in front of the building to let you in.
