I was delighted to be asked to not only curate, but to contribute two pieces to this fabulous show of book themed ceramic sculpture. It was a national call for entry and we had some fabulous entries. I was also asked to invite artists as well and they all rose to the challenge with great verve and creativity.
I have always been a great lover of books. My home is filled to the eaves with them, bursting forth from beneath beds and inside closets and everywhere there is a spare nook. The invitation from Mary Cloonan, the Exhibitions Director at Baltimore Clayworks,
to curate a show which melded books and ceramics
was a dream come true.
