Earth Disguised…

The best news that I got over the holidays, at least ceramics-wise, came from my buddy Jeff Campana. He was invited to do a visiting artist workshop at Terra Incognito Gallery in Chicago and there was to be a two-person show that coincides with this workshop. Jeff and I had been talking over the last months about doing a show together… the concept centering around our propensity to execute very tedious decorative processes. Anyway, I believe Jeff’s part was a done deal and he emailed me one day and said that if I was interested, he would like to propose that the other person in the two-person show be me. I was absolutely interested and he suggested it and Terra Incognito said yes. So we will have a show together from April 3 – May 8. Needless to say, I’m very excited and have very much work to do to get ready… glad my wheel is fixed! Here’s a bowl that I’ve committed to the show…

    Congrats Jim! That is going to be a really excellent show. It should be called something like ‘all in a million hours work’ 🙂

    Congratulations Jim! How exciting, and hoping you will share the other pieces you ultimately create for the show.

    Jim– I just wanted to say congratulations on the show prospect! I’ve been following your blog –starting in the new year– and have wanted to say how interesting the patterning is on your forms. Now I’ve gotten around to it!

    It’s sure to be interesting how the two bodies of work look together. Good luck!

    Pretty sweet. You both have rather kick ass work. Maybe I can talk the wife into a quick train ride to the north end of the state.

    awesome news! congrats and most definitely post more pics please!

    Absolutely fabulous opportunity; to promote your work and to get some valuable sales and hopefully commissions. Then there is the chance that some museum will buy a work. That always inspires me to make even better work – you never know who may visit the exhibition – hopefully you will get a local review published on the work. All part of the game and the will to move forward in the public domain (extend the comfort zone). Scary but nice – one always has to be a wee bit nervous; it ensures one is not caught wanting. Best of luck Jim.

  22. John Bauman Says:

    Congrats on the exhibit. I’d like to make it up there to see it.

    That’s great news. Now you just need to find a venue in Houston for the same show… but I’ll probably have to be satisfied with the coffee table book.
