The September issue of Ceramics Monthly magazine features an article about my ceramics practice: A Pure Visual Beauty Born From Logic” by Ting Ju Shao.

I owe this honor to ceramist and author Ting Ju Shao – many thanks for your creative and poetic writing!

Read, and listen to(!), the article here.

“Goudy has transformed the codes of cosmic mysteries and wonders into his new creations.” —Ting Ju Shao

Sending special thanks to editor and curator Randi O’Brian for her help and support…

“At a conceptual level, my current work is essentially math made physical or mathematics in porcelain.” —Mark Goudy

Februrary 1 – April 30, 2023

I’m thrilled to have been asked to show my work at the Crocker Art Museum along with six other artists from the Crocker-Kingsley Exhibition (see below.) Sending my appreciation to Curator of Ceramics, Rachel Gotlieb, and Chief Curator Scott Shields for the selection.

December 3, 2022 – January 14, 2023

The biennial Crocker-Kingsley art competition continues a tradition that began in 1926 through a collaboration between the Crocker Art Museum and the Kingsley Art Club. This year marks the 81st iteration of the competition. The exhibit is curated by Emma Saperstein, Chief Curator and Director of Education at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art.

My entry for this competition is my largest and most convoluted “Wave Form Object” to date. This particular design uses a sine wave cycle ratio of 4 against 5, which in musical terms would be a major third. The oscillations line up at the bottom, and again at the rim, but in between the ridges and valleys cast unexpected patterns of light and shadow across the curved form.

November 4 – December 17, 2022

A few years ago I spent the better part of a year experimenting and working on a series of balancing sculptural kilnformed dot-field glass objects. I’m really happy to be showing this work again, this time locally at Manna Gallery in Oakland.

“Warm Glass” is an exhibition of work by five artists working in kilnformed glass: Sylvia Chesson, Mark Lightfoot, Bruce Pizzichillo, Mark Schatz, and me.

Opens for the 1st Friday Oakland Art Murmur November 4, with the artist reception Saturday, November 5, 2022 from 2-4pm.

I am extremely honored to be awarded the Kito Prize in the JICB exhibition in Jingdezhen, China. The award comes with an invitation for a residency at the International Studio at Jingdezhen Ceramic University for up to 3 months, sometime in the next 2 years. Very exciting!

August 5 – October 29, 2022

“The word “intention” comes to mind when observing the ceramic work of Mark Goudy and Liza Riddle. While each artist’s ceramics are diametrically opposed and stylistically different, their work exudes intentionality: It is deliberate, purposeful, and highly engaging.” —Jonathan Kaplan, Plinth Gallery

I’m really gratified that my origami series work Counterpoint, received an honorable mention at the Korea International Ceramic Biennale!

I had planned to be at the Museum for the opening in October, but alas the virus had other ideas…

Origami vessels.

March 12-19, 2022

Words Without Translation – DZINE Gallery

Words Without Translation, a two-artist exhibition featuring works of photography by Davey Whitcraft and ceramic art by Mark Goudy.

“Light, space, and form are central concerns for both artists, while both of their processes incorporate technological invention in creating a visual language of new representations and forms. These artists share a unified conceptual vision of the role of the mind in experiencing a work of art: what is translated in the mind through spatial memory and what cannot be translated in naming a complex idea and emotion.” —Philip Bewley, curator.

March 7 – April 22, 2021

Liza and I were super excited to return to our favorite place, Galerie du Don, this time showing with some of our all-time heroes: Arnold Annen, Curtis Benzle , and Joan Serra!

This was my first showing of a whole new body of work from my pandemic project – the shell series, the waveform series and the origami series.

Our exhibit in the main gallery is over, but our works are still on display and available for sale at Galerie du Don.
