I-Thou: Recent Ceramic Work at PTS Museum

Hey Folks -- My first post...

The most recent manifestation of my artwork is an exhibit of about 25 pots at the Kelso Museum at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, where I am finishing my Master's degree. The work went on display beginning in March, but the exhibit has been extended through the end of April. So, for those of you who've missed it so far, you still have a few weeks to check it out.

The exhibit includes predominantly wood-fired and majolica-glazed pieces. And they are all for sale.

This has been a great exhibition opportunity for me for several reasons. First, it's my first solo exhibition ever. Second, it has been a nice way to compliment my academic work, which focuses on intersections between theology, art-making and aesthetics. Finally, this museum is an archeological museum that is chock-full of ancient, beautiful pots -- which I think is a compelling context for my very recent ceramic work. There are nice juxtapositions as well as compliments between the artifacts -- some as much as several thousand years old -- and my new work.

If you want to check it out, you can get museum information at: http://www.pts.edu/museum7.html.
