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.

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!
