Another pottery thing that I’m proud of is me being a part of the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum in Kansas City. It’s been three years now and I still have work for sale in the gift shop there. I have work that is under the same roof as Degas, Monet, Van Gogh, Renoir, Jackson Pollock…the list keeps going on and on! I’m so grateful that the curator of the gift shop saw my work in the Best of Missouri Hands website. A big thanks to Kory!!
And occasionally, the Nelson will invite artists to demonstrate their talents in front of the gift shop. I’ve done textured trays one time and painted my under glazes for my Mishima decorated bowls whilst I was demonstrating my work. It’s so much fun getting to interact with their patrons from little kids to retired artists and from all over the world, too!
