I currently have a two-person exhibition with my wife Kristen Martincic at Turman Larison Contemporary in Helena, Montana. Cold Plunge is our third show together at TLC since I was a resident at the Archie Bray. It features a series of collaborative ceramic pieces that bring together our shared interests in minimal, reduced shape and the idea of containment. Kristen's woodcut "leisure pool" series was the starting point for the brick pools that we made out of clay. Click here to see more images from that show.

In March, the 50th annual NCECA conference will take place in Kansas City, Missouri. I will have work at the following venues: Santa Fe Clay’s La Mesa, The Clay Studio’s 100 Cups, as well as with Lillstreet Art Center.

I am excited to take part in a McKnight Artist Residency at the Northern Clay Center in Minneapolis for June through mid July.

In September, I will have a solo show at Signature Contemporary Craft in Atlanta and teach a two-day hands-on workshop at nearby Mudfire Clayworks
