Share a Pot and a Memory
My friend Andrew Linderman shares a memory behind his S. C. Rolf cup.
"I can remember at least one story that accompanies each of the handmade pots that we own. Whether it’s a story about the artist, what I was doing when I got the piece, or a memory of a time that I’ve used the piece. These fond memories slowly add layers of sentiment and attachment to the pots. As a craftsperson and artist, I hope that my work is also used on a regular basis, so it too can become a thread woven into the tapestry of its user’s life." -Andrew Linderman

As an artist, one of the reasons I am drawn to this medium is for the community who often
gather to share their ideas, support, and nourishment. To represent these attributes of the
ceramic family I have named the exhibition “Potluck”. I would like to thank all of the
invited artists for setting the overall tone for this exhibition. Each of the submissions to this
call had merit and showed great ability making these decisions difficult. Though the
decisions were not easy, I think it is the juror’s responsibility to curate a cohesive exhibition
to the best of their ability. I hope you enjoy the work of all of these wonderful artists as one

Go to Lake Michigan at least once a month.
While I was at Lake Michigan yesterday, I was reminded of how much nature feeds my soul, and so far Lake Michigan is the best place to escape to in Milwaukee. Ps. I am more than open to suggestions for your favorite places to explore nature in the greater Milwaukee area.
Keep making those goals for 2020. I know I am.
