Beginning Saturday, October 15th, I will have a rare showing of my favorite "failed castings" from the last 6 years of creating iron skillets with friends in parking lots, ally ways and urban industrial spaces around the country.
This show is happening in the now closed Fizz Bar, where my friends and I turned a dilapidated two - story brick interior into a white and super rad looking Pop Up gallery space in Chicago's Lincoln Park Neighborhood.
I'll be showing a majority portion of the skillet map to scale behind the old bar, ( rock star location for it!), alongside a stellar lineup of fellow metal casting artists and oil painters from Chicago and New York.
If you're in Chicago-land area this Saturday, October 15th, I have the pleasure of giving a brief artist talk with my good friend and insanely talented sculptor, Marshall Svendsen. I'll be discussing my cast iron process and sharing some fun stories of how these "miscastings" came to happen, and how they informed my decision to launch American Skillet Company, my second business in cookware :}
Hope you can find the time to come! If so, see ya there!!
