Have you heard of Michael Keene? He's a contemporary ceramic sculptor who creates human and animal characters with graphic elements using texture, crisp black lines, and bright colors. For those in the Denver area, you can see his work at the Zip 37 Gallery on Navajo Street now through May 24. Here's more info: Denver Galleries.
Look for me on Twitter if you want to hear about other random bits I find that might interest you (I promise not to tweet about my lunch unless it's something so delicious that you should know about and try).
