I just had the best visiting artist experience at Concord University in Athens, West Virginia. First of all, really wonderful professors and students. Thanks to you all for making me feel so welcome! Second, gorgeous campus and breathtaking drive out there from Richmond. The campus is about 6 miles from Pipestem National Park. I nearly drove off the highway two times just looking at the sedimentary rocks exposed by road cuts.
Jamie Biggs invited me to show at Concord University. He is making awesomely ambitious and outrageously good ceramic sculptures.
This is his work, titled "The Hay Wain or Big Wheel with Radio Flyer"pictured below:and "Lidded Jar with Targets Containing the Legend of Brock's Bridge".

It's great to see someone having some damn good fun with ceramic for a change! If you are in Staunton, VA, go see Jamie's work at the Staunton Arts Center in the Amazing Clay III show, curated by Michael Hough. (I'm in it too, thank you Michael.)
