Collaborations

My painter neighbor, Judy Bergerson and I are collaborating on a new series of pots. In these works I make the pots. I may decorate them or leave them undecorated. After they are then fired, Judy applies her painterly methods using acrylic paints, graphite, colored pencils and collage with a polymer medium to further decorate the surface. We hope to craft a dialogue between us and between pottery and painting . The discoveries made so far have been exciting. More of Judy’s work can be seen at www.judithbergerson.com
