gwendolyn yoppolo and Kevin Snipes

I was lucky enough to see a demonstration from Gwendolyn Yoppolo and Kevin Snipes today. I took a few photos which are currently on my flickr. I am still kicking myself for not taking more pictures especially of Gwendolyn’s work; her matte crystalline glazes are very juicy and much better in person. I especially liked her mugs; she makes great handles. Both artists explained their techniques well and gave me some food for thought.

It was an unexpected treat to meet and talk with Kevin Snipes one of my favorite functional artists. I like the light humored dialogue of his pots and his execution of drawing in relation to the form. I look forward to seeing more of his work in the future, perhaps at NCECA?

I found some images I took before the Crafty Wonderland Sale of some cups. I know more cups “whoop dee do” but I like making cups, it’s almost an obsession. I’ll post something different as soon as I can.
