With everything that I have going on these days it’s really hard to find time to work in the studio… which is actually still how I mostly make my living. It was good to get my hands dirty today. We are way behind schedule for this cycle, so it’s going to be fast and furious for the next month.

Thanks for representing our project @potsinaction ・・・ “Baltimore Mobile Community Brick Factory” The “Baltimore Mobile Community Brick Factory” is currently happening in Baltimore, Maryland. It is a collaborative project between Josh Copus (@joshcopuspottery), Marian April Glebes (@thingsonshelves), and the people of Baltimore that seeks to create positive relationships and connections amongst people through clay and bricks. Participants and visitors are helping to produce hand-made bricks from local Maryland clay with historic water-struck methods and then personalizing and stamping their stories into the handmade bricks. The bricks will become a series of temporary public art installations around the city as the artists work to create a permanent home for the “monument”. Josh and Marian also made and fired 1300 “COMMUNITY” bricks at the Taylor Clay brick factory in North Carolina prior to opening their factory in Baltimore. All of the “COMMUNITY” bricks are being given away to the participants of the project as a reminder of the experience and to create more dialog and thought about what community means to us. The factory moves around the city to engage as diverse a group of people as possible and record their feelings and the happenings of this city in clay. It’s about making a monument in real time. A time capsule about these times and the voices of the people who live in them. #PIAguesthostSociallyEngagedCraftCollective @sociallyengagedcraftcollective via Forrest Gard and Jeni Hansen Gard of @gard_clay_studios #baltimoremcbf #buildingcommunitybaltimore #communitybrickproject #communitybrick #buildingcommunityproject #freddiegray #sociallyengagedcraft #sociallyengaged #sociallyengagedcraftcollective #SECC #ceramics #craft #clay #keramik #céramique #poterie #cerámica #keramikk #krukmakeri #potsinaction #handmade #contemporarycraft #contemporaryceramics #セラミックス #陶器 #céramique #poterie
