Latest News


It isn't yet, but they say that tomorrow we could get 10-15 cm's of the white stuff, and it is going to stick around too. Oh well, it's Calgary, and as we all know, the weather here is weird. You could be golfing on New Years Day, and have a blizzard in July.

Now that I have that off my chest...

I started working at Ceramics Canada a few weeks ago on Saturdays to help them out while one of their staff goes on maternity leave. It's kinda like writing a physics test when you haven't even cracked a text book or gone to a lecture. I mean, I know stuff, but not that much (I only know what I read, I don't have formal ceramics training). People have all kinds of strange questions, requests, etc. Like last week, someone wanted to build a blast furnace, and wanted to know what kind of clay he should use to insulate the walls. Good greif, I don't know...:). At least he had plans, and wasn't asking me how to actually build it.

I am sure I will learn a lot working there though

Currently, I am working towards a couple of sales. One is for the Fairview Studios Sale on May 10, the next one is in the middle of July at Centennial gallery, and then the Calgary Clay Arts Association (newly formed) is trying to put a sale together for the first part of September at Art Central to coincide with the Calgary Art Walk. Art Central has an empty gallery space where Dashwood Gallery used to be, and the management of the space is offering the space up to individuals and groups that want to show somewhere for a short period of time. It is rent free, they just take 10% of all sales.

This will be a juried show (I think, will know more after CCAA meeting on 20th), so I need to start thinking about what I want to enter. It will probably be limited to 1-2 pieces per entrant.

That's all I can think of right now, and yay, it is almost time to go home (I am writing this at work – my bad)
