The Myth of Family (Day)

In 2019, before COVID would stop these sorts of things, I had my first solo pottery show “The Myth of Family” at Oxford Riverside Gallery.

On this Family Day holiday, I wanted to give those who were unable to attend the opportunity to have an inside look at the show. Below is a short video that highlights some of the pieces in this exhibit, and will give you a feel for the gallery.

Art Exhibit – ‘The Myth of Family‘ – A Showcase of Raku Pottery

I am pleased to be able to say that the night was a great success, and a number of these pieces have sold!

I want to take this opportunity to thank all the lovely souls who took the time to attend and view my pieces. You helped make this moment special for me!

I would also like to acknowledge the professionalism and hard work of Mathew at the Oxford Riverside Gallery for the opportunity to show my work. Your knowledge, insights and help were incredibly appreciated!

Please let me know what you think of the video and which piece was your favourite in the show in the comments below.

May your Family Day
(and every day!)
be filled with love!


  1. I’d have loved to have been there in person for this exhibit. I’ve always wanted to have my nature photography in a gallery exhibit. The closest I came was in 1998 when a local small-town museum commissioned me to photograph old barns in the county. My barn images ran concurrently with a Smithsonian exhibit on old barns of America which was showing at the museum. It was an honor and a fun commission, but not quite the same as having my own individual gallery show. You must have been so thrilled! I hope you can experience many more of these gallery exhibits, and I hope you’ll share them with your viewers who are too far away to see them in person. Beautiful work such as yours deserves attention and praise. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Mike! I appreciate it! I look forward to things being simpler covid wise which will help for future shows. I was definitely thrilled to have this one.

      Your barn images sound interesting! Do you have them posted online for viewing?

      1. I have one image up on my blog at the moment titled “Church Rock,” which is a sandstone formation with a hollowed-out area at the base that was used by the land owner to store salt licks and cattle feed decades ago. It’s the only image from that collection I have access to at the moment. There were about a dozen old barns I photographed (including the iconic Church Rock). The prints were kept by the museum. I have the original slides in storage (but no way to scan them again), otherwise I’d put some up on my blog. I was able to see a large portion of San Juan County, Utah during that commission job, areas I’d never visited before. It was a lot of fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. that does sound like a lot of fun, and what a great way to explore one’s local area ๐Ÿ™‚ very cool!
