So,being a connoisseur of kitsch I decided to photographically visit my collection of plastic pink flamingos that populate my deck, potted plants and flower beds around my yard. Also, being it is the dead of winter here in PA, I thought it would be fun to see how they were weathering the bitter cold and snow....

"THE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF POSTMODERN CERAMICS 2009 - "The exhibition CERAMICA MULTIPLEX"...with a possible subtitle, "Nature as Adventure"...ok, its something like that...I think I am missing something in translation but anyways there are a bunch of countries participating in this event..."The greatest and most important ceramic manifestation in Croatia will take place from April 18 till May 17 2009 in the City Museum of Varazdin and other places in the town.It will be held under the patronage of the Croatian Ministry of Culture and the Varazdin City Council"...uh huh, uh huh...straight from their website...anyways I am one of 14 Americans involved, maybe only 15 applied to be in, I don't know...Funny thing is that a colleague, the ceramics professor, Kevin Turner, here at IUP also got two of his pieces juried into the show...go figure, 14 people out of this entire country and one works with me.
So here are 2 more shots of Got Milk Rock Machine...this piece is comprised of two parts, both are mid range stoneware...hand built and thrown parts...translucent green glaze, gumball like surface-opaque white, commercial decals and black,rubbery tool dip... about 12"x10"x8".

Free market economics has triggered the onset of The Great Depression 2.0. The planet is getting so hot you could light a cigarette just by holding it outside your car window. The Large Hadron Collideris on the verge of creating a Black Hole that could swallow up the Earth. As we dive headlong into the Apocalypse, let's take a moment to breathe, relax and engage in contemporary Art!
