I fired some work here in Massachusetts just a few days before I flew home for the holidays. I was able to photograph some of the pots back here in Massachusetts a few days ago. I’m really excited about how my new work is turning out. The colors are vibrant and happy, the drawing design is simple and textural, and the glaze is satisfyingly satiny. I’m trying to gear up to have a busy year of selling and exhibiting my work. I’ve amped up my Etsy shop so that I have more than double the items available for sale (www.Etsy.com/shop/KiraCallCeramics).
Just today, I entered some work for a print on clay exhibition in Baltimore. My fingers are crossed that I will get in. I entered for the undergraduate student showcase in Ceramics Monthly last summer and wasn’t one of the lucky chosen ones, but I guess that just means I have to be more aggressive about applying for other opportunities. I have a really great feeling about my newest work, and I am confident that it will find its place somewhere in the ceramic art world.
