My sculpture, Keeping Up Appearances, is now in Houston for the national conference of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts.  The theme of this year’s conference is Earth and Energy.

Fellow artist and curator, Cindy Billingsley is setting up our exhibit, entitled (in keeping with the theme) Dynamic Narratives.  Cindy has gathered an amazing group of artists from all over the country, including Hawaii, to show in this exhibit.  She has worked tirelessly for a year, maybe more.  I am thrilled and honored to be included in this group.

A couple of images from behind the scenes here in North Carolina:

 It’s great to be the center of attention!


Figuring out the correct box size to ship the piece to Houston:

 Gaak!  Don’t fence me in!

Perhaps I have an overactive imagination, but sometimes the work takes on a life of its own!

Just read on the Dynamic Narratives Facebook site that everyone’s art arrived safely.  Cindy and Amber (who traveled all the way from Hawaii) are setting up the exhibit.
