The Pleasures Of Recombination

Having just completed one major show, and gearing up for another this weekend, you'd think I'd have some process photos to post, but I don't. Or rather, I do, but right now the process is boring. Pour plate. De-mold. Repeat.Also, since my contribution to the show at Tyler is going to be a big installation, there's really nothing to show until it's up.

If you didn't see the plates in New York, here's a sense of the direction they're moving in.

I'm in love with these split plates. First of all, they free me from the tyranny of polka dot installation schemes. Second, I think that combining plates makes a decisive move away from utility and decoration, and into sculpture. And third, I like the possibilities.

Come down to Tyler on Saturday and see what you think.

Many Thanks

Thanks to everyone who made the Artist Project show in New York such a great success! I gave out a ton of card, talked to a bunch of interesting people, and made a few significant sales.

No time to rest on my laurels, though. The Patterns Of Consumptions show at Tyler School of Art is coming up in about two weeks, and I've still got a lot of plates to make.

I'll try to post some process photos in the next week or two, but the reality is that getting all this work together, teaching, and managing a new baby (5 weeks now), is proving to be just about as much as I can handle.
