I was so pleased with how this show turned out- it felt like a real treat to be able to plan it with Krystal and Arounna- I look forward to more of these types of collaborations and special projects down the road. Thank you to everyone who has come by already, to those of you who purchased and supported the show- a special thank you too!
Until the next Kindred show... hopefully out west this time!

Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to the opening night- it was so lovely to meet you all. The work all looked so beautiful together at Bookhou! The best part was unpacking everything and both Krystal and I being so excited about each others' work. I couldn't have been more pleased with how it all came together. Since the show is all about a shared kindred spirit, we displayed it just this way- with a bit of Krystal's work, and then a bit of my work- side by side in small groupings. It all looked so pretty together- I'm really glad we were able to take the opportunity to create this show.
These photos were taken by Arounna at Bookhou. Arounna and John have such a fabulous shop and home- their work is so stunning too. I managed to bring home some pieces I had been admiring for quite some time, although it was hard to choose. They are really such a talented pair. And of course, their children are absolutely beautiful!
There was a bit of talk about some 'Kindred' work being available online, but we will be sure to post this if it is going to happen. There are a few more photos on my blog if you are interested!

From the most subtle blues to the darker blues and just about everything in between, I think I've managed to fall in love with blue in a whole new way. As is always the case when making new work, I had a few glaze issues that rose up out of the wood-work for me. It's a good reminder that after 18 years I still haven't managed to master the medium. The mere act of working in clay keeps me humble. That said, there was lots that did turn out- beautifully too!
The best part about this show will be seeing it all come together at the opening. I can't wait!
Don't forget- the opening is Thursday from 6-9pm! See you then!
