Persistence in Clay

Julia Galloway

This weekend I had the pleasure of going to Casper, Wyoming to see the Persistence in Clay: contemporary ceramics in Montana, at the Nicolaysin Museum.  Unfortunately I missed the panel discussion on Friday, because I had to teach, but I drove up for the demos on Saturday, the demos on Saturday with Julia Galloway, Alison Rientjes, David Smith and Stephen Braun. 

These pictures are from a new app that I have called “Hipster”, it makes your pictures into postcards It automatically adds the location of where you are. 

I was delighted to catch up with with Julia Galloway on Saturday; we went to Alfred together, ooooh so long ago.  It’s been 20 plus years since Julia have seen each other.  As always it was great to sit down with old friends and hear what they have been doing.  I’m not surprised at Julia’s success; she was the hardest working person I’ve ever met.  She has really dedicated her life to ceramics.  The ceramics world is lucky to have her in it.  Julia’s work is absolutely stunning!  If you’re not familiar with her I recommend that you make the jump to her website and marvel at her prolific and amazing work. .

Take a quick tour of some of my favorites from the show.  I had so many favs I can’t post them all.

    Hi Linda
    Yes it was a great group of people. I wish Casper was a bit closer, so I could see the Casper potters. Plus the Montana potters were great fun.
