PONSHOP Studio and Gallery is excited to announce their July exhibition featuring new ceramic work by local potter Daniel Christie. The gallery will be filled with a wide array of Christie’s signature work – from large vases to his popular “wiggle” mugs. This exhibition promises to entice pottery lovers who enjoy collecting handcrafted pieces from the region’s talent. In addition, the artist will be giving an exclusive wheel throwing demonstration to guests in front of the gallery on the opening night.
Daniel Christie received his bachelor’s degree from SUNY Plattsburgh in 2005 and participated as a work-study student at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina. Since relocating to Fredericksburg in 2006, he has worked in numerous art studios and has exhibited his work in juried art shows and festivals throughout the East Coast. Daniel now resides in King George, Virginia with his wife and two children, firing his pottery in a 100 cubic foot propane-fueled brick downdraft kiln.
PONSHOP invites the public to visit the gallery during July’s “First Friday” opening on July 3 from 6-10pm.
