From Jamie Wade
The second Lark Ceramics book this year to show my work came out this summer. This one is an instructional book called "Making Faces: A Guide to Modeling the Head & Face with Clay." I am also the Texas Clay Arts Association's Featured Artist for July and August. As Featured Artist, there is a solo show of my work and an interview style article that has been published on the T.C.A.A.'s website texasclay.org. It includes mentions of the books and links to my website, Canopy's website and more.
