Michael Simon: Evolution

Hey all!

I was planning on posting this in a day or so, but Michael Kline just asked the question in a comment on the previous post.

I just got off the phone with the folks at the Northern Clay Center, and the word is that they will have only 15 copies of the book for sale at NCECA. Yikes! And to make things even more worrisome, they are entirely out of stock themselves. They had been expecting a resupply of 30 books last Friday, but the shipment never showed up. The person I spoke with said they would be making a reserve list if folks want to order a copy. You can call them at:

(612) 339-8007  ext. 301

Good luck! This book is amazing!

About Carter Gillies

I am an active potter and sometime pottery instructor who is fascinated by the philosophical side of making pots, teaching these skills, and issues of the artistic life in general. I seem to have a lot to say on this blog, but I don't insist that I'm right. I'm always trying to figure stuff out, and part of that involves admitting that I am almost always wrong in important ways. If you are up for it, please help me out by steering my thoughts in new and interesting directions. I always appreciate the challenge of learning what other people think.

    I picked up a signed copy. The show was excellent. Great to see a range of work, made over the span of many years.

    I think the book’s great, too. I got my copy in the mail this week and am really glad I bought it. Most of the photography is perfect, and I mean that in the best way possible. That is exactly how I’d like to be able to shoot images of my work. I haven’t read all the essays yet — still working slowly through the portfolio of images — so I guess it’s getting a little ahead of myself to already be recommending it. But I’m very impressed by the production values of the book, and that in itself is worth a lot. I have no doubts about the quality of the rest of the content.

    Too bad only 39% of Americans believe in evolution. Ah well. Maybe we can convince the 36% who “don’t have an opinion either way”.
