2014 began with the exhibition Trial by Fire, together with colleague and good friend Robin DuPont, curated by Helen Sebelius, at the Kootenay Gallery in Castlegar, BC.

Distinguished Canadian  ceramic artist and friend Les Manning also exhibitednew work in the gallery at the same time, which was an honor indeed.

Helen Sebelius choose primarily vase and jar forms from both the soda and wood chambers of the most recent firing for this exhibition.

The vessels selected tell a magical story of current directions that I am pursuing, and include a stunning selection of Robin DuPont’s new work as well.

A few images of the 21 pieces from my last firing which were selected for this show are posted below.
