Examining Denver Galleries

If you're a Denver resident or close enough where you're interested in the gallery scene, look me up on I just started writing for them as the Denver Galleries Examiner and I'll be writing about anything & everything related to galleries in & near Denver. If you're in Greeley, CO, there will be an opening reception at the UNC Art Galleries, Mariani & Oak Room, on Wednesday, March 4. Stay tuned for an article & more info.

Second, if you or anyone you know in Denver would like to be a writer for, care to use me as a reference? Let me know if you're interested & I'll give you my contact info. I'll return the favor and spread the word on your articles (yeah, we get paid for page views, and a bit for any references of course).

I'm now on Twitter in two places! Holy moley... ceramicerin & DenverGalleries. DenverGalleries is very straightforward - I update when I post an article. As for my personal Twittering, anything goes, whether it's related to galleries,, ceramics, food, cats, etc.

Now for the blogging... It's on my mind. The other night I was glazing pots at the Guild and I asked a member, "Are all of these glazes food safe?" and she replied, "Yep, they are all lead-free." Well my dear friends, we all know lead-free is a good thing, but that isn't the only quality of a glaze that makes it food-safe. I'm no expert when it comes to glazes, but I do know that there is more to food-safe glazes than lead. I plan to research and post my findings soon. If you want to read about what makes a durable glaze, Mastering Cone 6 Glazes is a good start.
