There will be many new and different pieces in my booth at the show, but they almost all have faces.  The miniatures are a brand new and very affordable item, which invite you to make up your own story about just what might be going on behind these countenances.  $25-$45

Look for me in Booth 106!

David Bales, photographer

David loves to work with artists and is offering generous, affordable rates. He is a pleasure to do business with and to yak with!  Check him out and support a local artisan, Benton County folks.

He recently shot a few of my favs from the last firing of the Alsea Anagama

It’s a wrap

Another Showcase has come and gone. It was a great show as always, and I am honored to have shown my work with so many fantastic artists.

Courtney Frisse really knows how to photograph pottery. Her pics show off some of my favorites in a whole new light.  You’ve seen these, but here they are looking their best!
