 My piece got accepted to the Skutt Kiln Peep Show! It's going to on display at NCECA!
My non ceramic artist friends keep asking "What's a peep?" When you're firing a kiln, there is a row of peep holes in the side that you can look thru to check on your stuff and make sure the firing is going ok. You keep these removable peep plugs in the holes when you're not looking so the heat doesn't escape. This show is an exhibition of functional peep plug sculptures - that is, they are made to fit into standard kiln peep holes.

NCECA is the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, and they hold an enormous conference in a different city each year. This year it will be in Tampa, FL at the end of March. So I'm pretty excited - this piece will get seen by thousands of people. It's my first time being accepted to a national show. Maybe next year I'll take the big leap and apply to NCECA's emerging artist exhibit. That would be HUGE!
