Open House

Went over to the "Barns" tonight and checked in with the resident artists of Penland. The residents host an open house every session throughout the school year. Matt Kelleher and Shoko Teruyama had some really nice pots in progress and in their gallery. Here are a couple of shots from their studio. It's hard to believe they've been here three years already. Luckily for the local clay community they will be moving to nearby Madison County, about 45 minutes or so from Penland.
Matt and Shoko collaborate on a lot of the pots, heres a nice little cup thrown by Matt and decorated by Shoko.
Here is a quiet cup by Matt. Some of the spots remind me of fireflies.


Here are a few of my friends that agreed to pose for the potzarazzi...
