Overview

As an artist and educator I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to teach and promote ceramic arts and ceramic arts education while continuing to grow and learn from my mentors, contemporaries, and students.

This Kickstarter campaign will allow me to travel to Australia & New Zealand to:

  • Promote community ceramic arts education, both local and abroad, by presenting a paper and demonstrating at an international conference in Canberra, AU (July 2015).
  • Conduct primary research for a new series of biomorphic sculptures.
  • Work with Australian artists, sharing ideas and techniques.
  • Develop a new line of porcelain jewelry.
  • Exhibit this new body of work and present a lecture at AMOCA, the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, CA (June 2016).

I’m honored to have been invited to be a presenter at Stepping Up: The 14th Australian Ceramics Triennale. I’m passionate about the important role community ceramic studios fill in providing quality education to our communities, particularly as ceramics programs continue to face reductions in many educational institutions. In addition to presenting my paper, I’m looking forward to demonstrating my ceramic methods while learning and gathering inspiration from ceramic artists from around the world. While this invitation is non-funded, it provides an important career experience on many levels.

After the conference I’ll travel throughout Australia and New Zealand to conduct research for my next body of work. This includes photographing intricate parts of exotic plants to refer back to while sculpting. These abstracted plant forms are the visual elements that are seen throughout my entire body of work. My individual sculptures are a methodical study of form and surface whereas my paired sculptures provide opportunities to play with the relationship and tension between forms.

I plan to photo document botanical specimens at the Australian National Botanical Gardens (Canberra), Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens (Brisbane), and Auckland Botanical Gardens (Aukland, NZ). Of particular interest on this trip I’ll be looking for the Bat Flower Tacca chantrieri (Black) and Tacca integrifolia (White).

During my travels I’m looking forward to the opportunity to share and demonstrate my techniques while working with Australian artists; learning about their processes, traditions and conceptual concerns.

Support

Funds from this campaign will be used to cover travel expenses and to purchase a high quality digital SLR camera. The camera will be used to document the conference and botanical research. Upon my return, the camera will be instrumental in documenting and marketing my ceramic works from the sculptures to a new jewelry line. To keep food and lodging costs to a minimum I plan to stay with fellow artists as often as possible.

I’ve budgeted $5600 to cover transportation (ground and air), a digital SLR camera (body, lenses, accessories), conference fees, visa, food, lodging and incidentals for this 6-week project (July 4 - Aug 10, 2015).

Any funds raised above and beyond the campaign goal will go towards additional travel costs in Australia and New Zealand to conduct further research for my next body of work.

Appreciation & Reciprocation

I’m very excited about this opportunity and have been working diligently to insure its success. My students, both past and present, can attest to my dedication to furthering education in the field of ceramics. It will now be an honor to share my thoughts abroad about the opportunities that community studios afford us by providing quality ceramics education.

For the conference, I’ve submitted my paper for publication and prepared materials for my demonstration. Travel has been organized to maximize botanical research and create a rich photo portfolio from which to draw from and stimulate studio work. A venue and date have been confirmed and I look forward to sharing my experiences with local ceramics communities culminating in a show and lecture at AMOCA.

Last, but certainly not least, I’ve created a new line of porcelain jewelry which I’m excited to offer here first as reward options to further encourage your kind support.

Please take a look at the rewards images below. From prints of my botanical research to sipping cups and biomorphic sculptures I hope you’ll find something to share in my journey. Whatever you can do, including passing info about this project on to a friend, would be greatly appreciated!

This project has already received enthusiastic support and has notable momentum. I would like to take a moment to send my immeasurable thanks to Heidi Kreitchet, Mandy Stigant, Nikolay Maslov (Video Production), Michael Kotzen and the AMOCA community. 

Most of all, my heartfelt thanks to everyone for helping to make this project come to life!

Risks and challenges

The risks are quite low as I feel a lot of legwork has been done up front to mitigate mishaps. The conference is solid as my paper has been accepted and is being published.

Travel challenges in Australia are low as I studied there in 2008 and was fortunate to build a strong network.

If I am lucky enough to get overwhelming support please be patient as I craft each piece individually. It takes time to poke all those holes! In preparation I am starting now to be ready for the future.
