La Mesa, Santa Fe Clay, NCECA 2016

Kansas City, MO

Gallery statement:

This bowl is glazed in the colors of moonlight. A desert hawkmoth, its head buried in the pollen-laden, beautiful white flower of a Queen of the Night cactus, gathers nectar as it concurrently pollinates the flower. This occurs amidst intertwining cactus branches and egg clusters. The drifting watch alludes to biological time, the playing card to chance and random odds, while the eggs, flower and pollination refer directly to fertility and regeneration.

Farraday Newsome and Jeff Reich, Queen of the Night, glazed terra cotta, 3.5 x 11.5 x 11.5”, 2007

This bowl, made collaboratively by Jeff Reich (wet clay) and Farraday Newsome (glazing), is on display at Tohono Chul Park Gallery’s current exhibition In Full Bloom.


The show runs February 19 through April 24, 2016.  http://tohonochulpark.org/exhibits/

Indigo Street Pottery Native Landscaping Note

This was Indigo Street Pottery’s fourteenth year as a host site for the Arizona State University Art Museum’s annual, free, self-guided Ceramic Studio Tour. Studio ceramists across the Valley opened their studios to hundreds of visitors for the two-day tour, February 20 & 21, 2016.


Indigo Street Pottery featured artwork and demonstrations by hosts Farraday Newsome and Jeff Reich, former Director of Ceramics at the Mesa Arts Center, along with guest artists Tiffany Bailey, Director of Ceramics at Phoenix College, and Jesse Armstrong, Director of Ceramics at the Mesa Arts Center.


Arts writer Lynn Trimble wrote a comprehensive guide to all fourteen sites  for the Phoenix New Times newspaper before the event:  http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/arts/asu-art-museum-ceramic-studio-tour-2016-a-field-guide-to-the-metro-phoenix-event-8008060  


and, after visiting all fourteen sites, compiled a terrific slide show, also for the Phoenix New Times:
