It features work by Sam Chung, Kevin Snipes, and me!
the photos were taken quickly by me, so they are not the best, but you get the picture.
here's a grouping of some of my work as well as Sam's cup & saucer trays.

Potter's Council: Surface & Form

i'm pleased to announce that i will be one of the presenters at the Potter's Council Conference in January 2011 at Funke Fired Arts in Cincinnati.
Learn How to Add Depth of Pattern to Your Work
Meredith will focus on her surface decorating process. Most all of her decoration happens before the bisque firing. This includes underglazes and slip for trailing, thermofax screen printing, and stencils. After the glaze firing, Meredith fires a third time with homemade iron oxide decals for one last layer. This process of adding multiple layers allow the work to have a depth of pattern and an intricate, complex surface. This method of multiple firing allows the work to be less precious and gives one an opportunity to play around with layering. It also provides an opportunity to reclaim or save a piece that is not to your liking by adding another layer of visual information.

summer update part 4: the final chapter

ok ok, so it's not really summer's most definitely fall now but i think i have to do one final summer recap.

foldedpigs across the nation. the indie craft fair circuit is over. phew...a ton of miles were put on the car. austin, brooklyn, philly, kansas city & chicago. done and done.
rain & i selling at renegade austin. look at all the pattern!

me shopping in the CircaCeramics booth at renegade chicago. i bought a sweet orange zombie mug designed by matty8080.
caught on film by danny of renegade.

i had a week vacation in between craft fairs and was able to hang out with my philly friends and eat as much water ice as possible. one evening we made homemade fireworks (actually safer than you'd think!)
check out the video below...i posted ryan's firework spin because it was one of the better ones.

now i'm working working working in the stu stu studio...lotsa upcoming deadlines. the summer heat was brutal - working in a 90 degree studio was a bit draining.
stay tuned for more...and a taxidermy update
(i know it's what you've been waiting for).
