A couple months back I had a super fun experience being photographed in my backyard and studio by Alexandrea Thomsen for ArtsNowNC, this great website that covers arts events and does artist features in the Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill). Thought I would share it today because winter hasn't left the south, we actually got our first snowfall of this winter and I'm absolutely dying to get back in my studio. It's looking like I'll have to wait until at least the first week of March so today I'm just enjoying these photographs. Thanks for the lasting memories Alex!

So recently I shipped a little white cake plate all the way across the country to the amazing food blogger, Molly Yeh and she was generous enough to feature it on her instagram and blog! These are a couple of my favorite shots! All photographs by Molly of course!!

These photographs we all taken by my friend and Durham-based photographer Eleanor Mills.
Less than two months after my solo show at the Carrack I was lucky enough to receive another solo show at the Scrap Exchange, an incredible Durham re-use organization. Every year the Scrap does this great event on Black Friday called Smashfest. Everyone hangs out, drinks beer and breaks pottery in the parking lot behind the store. I proposed a show and performance in conjunction with their event. I hung an abbreviated version of my wallpaper tiles in a linear organization and then on the day of Smashfest I led my performance "When I Lose My Grip." Those who wanted to participate came into the gallery and I asked them to select a tile from the wall, blindfold themselves, and then consecutively drop their tile. It is a sound performance and so participants have to navigate the decision of when they think it is their turn to drop their tile. I was so happy with the result and I love these stills of the performance. It's funny looking at people do such a strange thing without the use of sight. I have video of the event so hopefully I'll share that soon!
