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

“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

Gyeonggi, South Korea
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…

San Francisco, California
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
Le Fel, France
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.
