October 2008 Update

The past couple of months have been busy. I have recently moved my web page from Google to Google is no longer supporting google pages and their new google sites option didn't look like it would work for me. I also now have my very own domain name: My new web site is therefore, The old web site will remain online for awhile but will no longer be updated. I still plan to keep my blog right here as my pulpit for relating news about shows and anything else I might want to write about!

In September I participated in the Corvallis Fall Festival in Corvallis, Oregon as part of the Willamette Ceramics Guild booth. We had one of our best shows ever as a Guild. I did better than I have in the past also.

Shortly after the Fall Festival I participated in the 10th Annual Clayfest show at the Lane County Fairgrounds in Eugene, Oregon during the first part of October. I was greatly honored and humbled by having one of my salt-glazed pots be chosen by the other artists in the show for second place for Best of Show. Frank Gosar of Eugene won first place with a wonderful scultural piece and James Tingey of Corvallis won third place for a great teapot and tea cup set. Alyssa Clark won for best booth. This is the second year that I have participated in Clayfest. It was nice to connect once again with the Eugene artists and meet new folks this year. It was really nice to have customes from last stop by and say hi.

Wildfire Pottery Showcase is the next sales event in Bend, Oregon on November 8th and 9th. The event is held at the Seven Peaks School, 19660 Mountaineer Way (off of Washington Dr.). Wildfire features over 25 Oregon clay artists. The hours are Saturday, 10:00am to 5:00pm and Sunday 10:00am to 4:00pm. My booth is right next to the demonstration area. In fact I will be doing a demonstration on Sunday at 10:00am.

I will also be having a selection of my wood-fired pottery on display in the OSU Memorial Union Concourse gallery in Corvallis, Oregon as part of the Handmade in Oregon 5 exhibit. The exhibit runs from October 27, 2008 to December 6, 2008.

I will participating as a crew member in an anagama firing at Jay Widmer's Digger Mountain kiln west of Alsea, Oregon on October 24th, 25th, and 26th. This firing comes at a good time for me as it will give me nice new pieces to take to the Wildfire show in Bend in November.
