International Ceramic Research Center 2012

In September and October 2012 I was invited for a second residency at Guldagergaard, the International Ceramic Research Center in the charming town of Skælskør, Denmark. My focus was on transferring my illustrations to clay with silk-screening and decals.

"The Fiddler", commercial porcelain 6" trivets re-fired with my original drawings made into cobalt and pale blue decals.

"Ukrainian Cakewalk - Ukrayniksh Kek-Vok" from "The Absolutely Complete Introduction to Klezmer", played by Yale Strom and the Hot Pstromi.

Pair of Pitchers

This piece was a collaboration design with the talented ceramic artist Masako Fujii, from Japan. My illustrations are decaled on top of the cone 10 glaze and fired up to that temperature again, so they sink under the glaze.

Paul Scott

I met him 2012, while at the artist-in-residence at Guldagergaard, the International Ceramic Research Center in Denmark. I created this gift for Paul based on his recent blue and white giant tree, decaled onto porcelain tiles that now lives outside of the ceramic residency. In my portrait of him, he rides a Danish cargo bike to deliver his masterpiece.
