Jeff Reich currently has a solo exhibition in the Nancy Dryfoos Gallery, Kean University Art Galleries, Kean University, New Jersey from May 15 through August 24, 2014.  The show, entitled Interwoven, consists of ten wall-hanging sculptures, including a triptych, and four standing sculptures. Jeff’s work is stoneware, glazed and fired to cone ten in a reducing gas kiln.

Reich states,

The clay sculptures I create are inspired by natural formations, such as boulders fallen upon each other, or a tree’s erratic growth during drought.  Geometric forms allude to the manmade.  Leaning forms conjure images of tentative balance.


My glaze compositions consist of two-dimensional fields superimposed on the three-dimensional surface of the clay.  Windows of glaze drawings bring glimpses of repetitive plant forms.   Thorny, sometimes leafless plants, like Allthorn, adorn the surface by means of glaze sgraffitto. Textural glazes invoke thoughts of clay cracking on dry river beds.  Black reminds me of night when the desert is cooler. 


I grew up in Michigan surrounded by water.  Later, when I moved to Arizona, I was surrounded by mountains.  My choice of colors, glazes and form convey my interpretation of nature's presence around us.

Our Red Acre Cabbages have been growing for nine months and are just starting to form  heads! About time! We love how the silvery burnished leaves look interplanted with the feathery foliage of fennel.

The Goldkist Apricots are ripening daily now, perfect with morning coffee!

We recently harvested garlic that was grown from cloves we planted last October. After drying outside on a chair for a few days we braided them to hang and air dry for a couple more weeks.

Jeff Reich recently won 2nd place in his age group at the Tempe Hope 5K in Tempe, Arizona. Proceeds for the event went to the non-profit American Association  for Lost Children. The race was run in observance of the International/National Missing Children’s Day in May.

Farraday Newsome and Jeff Reich are included in the upcoming invitational exhibition 50 from 6: Contemporary Ceramic Art from Six Rocky Mountain States. The show was curated by Southern Utah University’s Professor Susan Harris and Assistant Professor Russell Wrankle for the  Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery, Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah.


The show will run September 25 - November 8, 2014.  https://www.suu.edu/pva/artgallery/index.html

We love these thornless Natchez Blackberries. The plants are freeze and heat tolerant, which is certainly necessary here, plus NO THORNS! They do best growing in the filtered light of the peach trees, using the trees branches as a trellis.
