Great opening last night for the “Connected by Fire” exhibition at @bluespiral1
A big thank you to my man Jordan and the whole Bluespiral team for all they’re hard work and great vision.
You make us all look good… especially these @bandanapottery pieces.
We will be having a special second reception to open the Mountain PreHEAT of the @woodfirenc conference on June 1st and an artist talk with @ridgelinepottery @ericknochestudio and @bizen_kazuya on June 7th at 1pm.
If you get a chance come check it out. It really is one of the strongest woodfired shows I’ve ever seen. (Obviously I’m a little biased… but it really is)

One of the greatest compliments you can receive as an artist is when a distinguished colleague purchases one of your pieces. @akirasatake is a friend and an inspiration. And he has always been a great motivator for me when I think about stepping my work up to the next level. Thanks for coming out last night and thanks for your support Akira. It means a lot (especially since you just got back from Australia 2 days ago). And thanks to everyone who came out to the show last night. For anyone in the area who couldn’t make it, the show is up till end of June. #akirasatake #community #bluespiral1 #woodfiredpottery #apotterslife #joshcopuspottery
