2Frogs Ceramic Arts will be one of over 300 artists showing works at the 9th Annual Ravenswood ArtWalk along the Ravenswood Corridor in the North Center and Ravenswood Neighborhoods.
This show will feature the Carved Series (more photos to come), Pebbles and the yet to be named series of pots featured below (naming suggestions welcome!).
The ArtWalk is free, thanks to support from dozens of neighborhood businesses and a strong donor base. Besides featuring the work of more than 300 visual artists, it also includes music, food vendors, kids activities and a live graffiti wall.
I will post updated location information as soon as it is available.
Save the Date!
Miki Shim/2Frogs Ceramic Arts showing at Mayslake Peabody Estate Fine Arts Fair, July 23-24, 2011 10 am – 4pm.
This Egg series pots will lead the way at the 4th Annual Mayslake Peabody Estate Fine Art Fair!
I should have named them Pebbles. These are special vases with bulbous body and super glossy glaze that oozes down to a satin red finish to the bottom. A unique coloring that range from a very deep chocolate breaking to varying degrees of greens, reds and orange. It’s hard to describe. You have to see it and touch it to really appreciate its beauty. Wheel-thrown, white stoneware is glazed red on the inside so it is water tight. Hand wash recommended. All of my pieces are glazed with lead-free materials and is food-safe.
Special thanks to my husband Lance Rutter for a great job on the photograph!
You can find me in the ClaySpace Booth along with 3 other ClaySpace artists: Marge Couden, Susan Delaney, & Sharon Spitzer.
Still to come: Plan ahead to visit me in August at the Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest, August 19-21. I will be sharing my booth with fellow potter, Sharon Spitzer and together will be showing a wide range of functional tableware and tea pots & cups.
Spring is trying its best to wake up the flowers with its rain. As eager as I am to see spring succeed, anxiety takes over to start my own spring cleaning.
While my home is still smothered under its winter’s weight, my studio is overflowing with pots and mugs and muses. They need to fill shelves and cabinets of others to be admired and loved.
