Well, I'm on the home stretch. Almost finished the work I had planned to - for the upcoming shows at Corban Estate Arts Centre in September/ October, and Page Blackie Gallery in November. Which means I have a little time at the end for play in the studio. Looking forward to working with a local blacksmith learning how to forge steel, and starting on a set of drawings with the intent to loose control. Playing with ash, and wish I could start on some of the new ceramics ideas I have (but alas shipping porcelain home from here just isn't practical).

New group of residents arrived this month and with it a whole heap of new influences, conversations and curiosities. Visiting artist and writer highlights this month include Sam Lipsyte, Jessica J. Hutchins, Dawn Clements. Lucky me.

So this being my last three weeks here I'm now also ensuring I complete a few more Vermont classic Summer adventures. To do this week: hike Mount Laraway.
