Anonymous Potter

Miss Anonymous...
The title of "Anonymous Potter" is fitting in a number of ways - I have certainly been anonymous from this blog, and even anonymous from the US for the past two and a half months (check out www.carletoncambridge2011.blogspot.com to see what I've been up to).  I just scrolled back through my posts on this blog and was shocked to realize that the last time I wrote anything here was well over a year ago.  While my own posting withered away in the spring of 2010, I have continued to be an avid blog reader (and know I'm not the only one who struggles for time to update a blog!).  But, I have a new reason to jump back into the game - I recently received the Anonymous Potter grant at the Northern Clay Center, which will provide me with studio space for the next year (yea!).  Below is a peek into my new studio space full of boxes waiting to be unpacked...

This grant period seems like an ideal time frame to document, and I'll do my best to keep the momentum going this time.  I've been back in MN for just a few days now, but I managed to throw a few things today for an upcoming show at the Charlie Cummings Gallery - Cup: The Intimate Object VII.  

Cups patiently waiting for their surface treatments
I'm looking forward to recording the changes in my work over the next year and am excited to get some practice writing again.  So here's to my new role as the Anonymous Potter of NCC, and to my reemergence on the blogging scene!

Hi! Good to see you back and blogging! I'm looking forward to following this next phase of your ceramics work.

Great to see you again! I have not blogged much in the last couple of months as well, because of the teaching schedule I now have. High school during the day and teachers in the evenings... I'm tired.
Looks like it will be a great space for you to work in! Wish I could find a great gig like that ;-)

Welcome back to the world of ceramics blogging! Congratulations on your grant and winning emerging artist or whatever you won.
Do you have to wear the nose and glasses while you are at the studio?

Thanks for reading, I'm glad to know there are still some folks out there, despite my long dry-spell. Phipty - I'm not REQUIRED to wear the glasses, but they do make me laugh... :)
