The ritual quietude
hangs heavily in the air

Crickets chirping,
and the scent 
of cedar smoke.

2013 ICMEA Emerging Artist Competition - Fuping, China

I'm thrilled to announce that I've been selected as a participant for the ICMEA (International Ceramic Magazine Editors Association) 2013 Emerging Artist Competition to be hosted this fall in Fuping, China. I will be participating along with two other US artists and many more from other countries. Jurors will select a group of ten finalists for Awards.

More information on the exhibition can be found here

I will be sending an Ember Buried Tea Bowl from my February firing.
