Pottery intensive June – recap

At the beginning of June, I decided to make June a ‘pottery intensive’ month in the studio. Looking back at the month, it was a lot of fun, and I made some really nice pots. I fired the kiln twice. After each firing, i put the pots on the porch, where they sold out in a matter of days.

Pottery Intensive June was a success! You can see a gallery of each kiln load by clicking the thumbnails below:

July is going to be a little bit different. I am going to keep making pottery. But i’ll also take brakes to do some more printmaking and painting too. The big thing for July is that I am participating in the facebook boycot #stopHateForProfit by not logging into facebook or instagram for the month of July.

I am a frequent facebook user, so this is going to be a challenging month for me. One of the bright sides of this boycott is that I plan to give my personal website and email newsletter some TLC, so stay tuned for more art and updates!

  1. Hi Ken- Totally enjoyed seeing this collection as it was revealed on social media. Beautiful work and it’s always a treat to be privy to the process. I’ve used you as an example and shown several artists how you maintain a presence on social media; conversing with friends, family, and customers and pointing out that you also sell your work very well that way too! Just because we’re all stuck at home doesn’t mean we need to become isolated and I really respect your decision to boycott during the month of July. It drove me over to your website, which I have never before visited, so it’s a win/win! Enjoy your time away. I subscribed, so will still get to see your updates. Stay safe. Create. Inspire!

    1. Hi Angela! I’m glad you found me! Sorry to drop off social media for July. I’ll be back, but the break has been kind of refreshing so far. With the pandemic (I am doing my part to flatten the curve: staying home, masks, etc) I have had to move most of my business online, where Facebook was my primary way to communicate with friends + patrons. Now that I’m off Facebook, I’m brainstorming new ways to use my website to share my art and connect with others…I like trying new things, so it’s been a good experience so far. Thanks for checking in and subscribing!
