Clay Cowgirl Sculptures on their Way to Town

Washboard player in KilnSpring is in the air and as our ski season has come to a close, it’s time to get ready for spring wood firings, and get in a good position for the summer season, building inventory, getting work out there, and reaching out to galleries.

I’ve gotten a lot of great feedback about the cowgirl sculptures, the stories they tell, and the women they celebrate.  With a few commissions in the works, making pots, and providing donations for organizations like Empty Bowls, and Dos Manos, it’s been a really busy time.

One of the newest projects is building a grouping of cowgirls to display in the Logan Wannamaker Gallery in downtown Taos, New Mexico.  I’m working on a “Stand Off” scene and hoping to get the washtub band on display as well.  I’ll be sitting the gallery on Thursdays from 10am to 6pm throughout the summer and eventually encouraging visitors to come by my studio in Arroyo Seco as well.

The challenges of trying to make a living as an artist are fully under way.  I’m really lucky to have such a powerful support system of friends, family, and community, and of course, an army of inspiring women!
