Something new is always happening.

Balancing sculpture / drawing / pottery / teaching / odd jobs creates intense and interesting days in and out of the studio. This journal will provide a forum for sharing both news and experiments. 

The image above, Remember when, is a small wall sculpture (6" x 6") that I made for last night's Whodunnit? event at the Art Association of Jackson Hole. This anonymous show and fundraiser presents the frustrating challenge (for me) of working on the wall in a small square format. However, I often find limitations beneficial in the process of working out new ideas. While incorporating drawing into my pottery I've also been puzzling over a method to layer drawings into wall sculpture to increase depth. This project allowed me to sketch out these thoughts, I think something new may come from this.

Meanwhile, this journal will be updated at least weekly with news from Dowd House Studios: places to find our pottery, exhibitions, classes & workshops, new forms and exciting projects.

So it's time for something new, let's see where it takes us!
