Newark, also called brick city, is exploding with art and new culture venues. Rupert Ravens Contemporary, 85 Market Street, opened last fall, bringing museum quality shows to the largest exhibition space in the region. This piece will be included in a show at NNPAC celebrating the Newark Arts Council.

spring awakening

After a long winters break, the woodfiring season is back.
Here are some pots on the table getting measured for a firing at Tony Moore's kiln in Cold Spring, NY. Drove up yesterday to deliver some ten pots. My mind and hands have been on other work this winter. Sculpture work trumped potmaking.
