Parkersburg Art Center Pottery Class

I know it's been a lonnnnnnnng time since I've posted to my Blog. 
Things have really changed in the last couple of years.
Anyway, I'll save you the details for another day, and skip to the business at hand!
I'm gearing up to teach a pottery class at the Parkersburg Art Center, in Parkersburg, WV.
I was hoiping to offer the class as sort of an alternative "advanced" class
but we will certainly accept beginners and advanced students alike!

Let me know if you'd be interested in the class, and I'll get you the details!
Or you can just click on the link to the Parkersburg Art Center!

Brush Valley Artists Open House

View Larger Map
This is the map I promised. Ned Wert is located in Brush Valley, just near the post office. My place is off of Luciusboro Road between Old Mission Road and Fire Academy Road, which is closed. From the south on 119 from Blairsville, you can find Luciusboro Road right off of 119. Just follow Lucisusboro all 5-6 miles to my place. From Johnstown on 56, stop at Neds first and he can help you find me! From Indiana, South Sixth St(Route954)ends at Rt.56, where you can turn left. Just at the base of the next hill, less than a mile will be signs for to turn right onto Old Mission Rd. Follow until you come to a stop, turn right and then keep your eyes peeled for the pottery in less than 1.5 miles.

Brush Valley Artists Open House

Come on out from 10-5 both Saturday and Sunday.
I'm working hard around the studio and the property to get things ready for your visit.

10lb planters, about 12" tall with the tray on top.

In the center of the above photo is an unfinished 20lb planter.

Just above are the 5lb planters.

This is the back stack of the kiln loaded up with 10lb planters.
Looking forward to the event.

Long time gone

It's been a while since I've posted, but I have been making and firing work. I have a permanent home for the light box setup now and a new sheet of background paper, as well as a replacement for the retired cybershot.

 The above mugs will hold about 8-10oz, standing 4" tall and 4" at the lip.

These vases are certainly inspired by historic shapes.
Check out this post of mine from earlier in the year. Sure took a long time to get those pots fired. wow. 
The gold one stands about 8.5" tall

I'm gearing up for another wood fired load of earthenware planters and other gardenware.
Pictures will be forthcoming 
Thanks for looking.

Cub Creek

Just wanted to share the link to the Cub Creek Foundation where I spent a couple years making pots and firing wood kilns with John Jessiman and met some great folks along the way, including friends such as Kala Stein, Kat AntisJosh Manning, Ed Feldman and Michelle and John Williams.
We had the chance to work with Jack Troy, Donna Polseno, Sylvie Granatelli and others while I was a resident there. John has a great place in central VA for the ceramics community and I just wanted to give you all a chance to check it out!
