Hope to see lots of you tonight!!!!!!!!
Everyones stuff looks great, got to see some of it in person yesterday, really tops. Was there for just a minute, and only saw some of the stuff up in place, but Babs, that bowl is a standout piece of the show, i hate that my junk will even be in close proximity!!!! Christopher Sowers large piece is a powerful image, and Amber's pieces, specially the Maori ones are killer. Did not see Tobunga's piece at the time but the posted pic looks cool, i look forward to taking in all the artists work tonight!
Tobunga, that was a big build up, hopefully people dig the work. The Modern Maori bowl, which i will post pics of later, is by far technically the toughest thing i have done, though whether that is evident will be up to all of you.
Here is the other new piece i will have at the show, the Pele Wakes bowl. Sorry for the crappy pics, was in a rush to shoot her before i dropped her off at the gallery. These pics kill the intricacies of the glaze work and do not represent the colors very well. If you look close you can see the dry ice fog that comes out of the lava Pele is throwing into the air via a chamber inside of her.
Enough of my Blah Blah Blah, looking forward to hanging out with folks, and thanks to Tobunga for putting this show together!

Pele wakes and lady Phoenix rises!


Cracks and crevices in the volcanic crater to hold flame and dry ice? Cass, genius! Pure genius!

What a blast, exhausted, will post more later and pics at the bar afterward (Kelly, the Thai joint had a bouncer who would not let the four of us in) but here is a photo i did not get posted before the show, the Modern Maori bowl.
Thanks Eric and Bradley! had a blast with everybody, gotta crash out.

and a special thanks to those of you that made the drive from orange county, 2 hours in traffic, and Thomas, 4 hours, shit!!!

Sounds like you guys had a fun time. I'm bummed I had to work yesterday. Post pics when you can.

Cass, that Modern Maori is really very cool. My favorite of piece of yours. For me, you are starting to jump from craft into higher art with this direction. I would love to see a show with all of your altered bust pieces together. Killa work man!
