Solo Show At The Clay Studio, Philadelphia

Just getting back from the sprint to Philly to set up this show. Click here for more images of the white branch forms. I flew in, arriving at 8 a.m., and got right to work with the installation of the Lithonomy Projects, and crashed with some old friends, Ryan Kelley and Amy Santoferraro, who helped me hang the work, then returned to Columbus the following morning.I am excited to debut my new rat form that is already getting attention.
