Holiday Show 2019 + Open House

Well, it was a longer slog than expected...but the new (home and) studio are DONE. (More or less. There's always something.) Although I'm still in the process of setting up my studio, I plan to be open during the KC holiday ceramic sales. Tara Dawley and I will have work at my new home studio on Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 10am-5pm. I hope you can come by and see us!

DIRECTIONS: If you use Apple Maps, type in "3120 Holly, KCMO". If you use Google Maps, type in "Rafter E Studio" (it will take you to the wrong place if you use the address).

Sign up for emails here (I only send a couple per year). 




Update 2017

I've moved my studio! Well, I'm in the process, and work goes on in the meantime. If you'd like to contact me about a project, or ceramics, my contact info is in the menu adjacent.

Thanks to all those who came to visit my old studio. A few photos to remember it by below. I'll be updating this blog now and then but, well, Facebook is a little more expeditious. You can find me there at http://www.facebook.com/rafter.e.studio.

Art by Architects! Call for Submissions.

Are you an architect, landscape architect, interior architect or interior designer?

Do you make beautiful things outside the office, too?

Do you wish you had someplace to show them?

If you answered "yes" to all three of those questions, we'd like to hear from you.

We'd like to develop a list of people who meet the above description to show their work at Rafter E. We host (generally) three shows a year. In the broadest sense, we're looking for two-dimensional work, but if you work three-dimensionally, send us pics, anyway! Who knows where this will go? The only requirements are that it be for sale, and if two-dimensional, be self-supporting (i.e. framed, stretched on a frame, mounted, etc.)

When you contact us, please send jpgs of your work, with the files labeled with your name and size of work (i.e. "Robert Smith_24x36"). Tell us a little about the medium, the price point you're thinking of--and anything else you'd like to say. Ideally, the slides are of the actual piece(s) you'd like to show. Send to john@johneck.com.

 April 1: 

Deadline for email submissions.

April 8: 

We plan to sort the work (so shows look cohesive), so we'll email you about how your work could fit in the overall year's show schedule.

April 19: 

Work for the Spring Show needs to be delivered to 4501 Fairmount, KCMO (no later than this date).

April 25-27: 

Spring Show of Work.

Sales tax will be added to whatever price you assign, and we're happy to help you determine price, if you like. A 10% commission will defray our costs of mounting the show, advertising, wrapping materials, credit card fees, etc. 


PorchfestKC 2014

Music, art, food . . . and a walk around our West Plaza neighborhood! Saturday, June 14. Visit www.porchfestkc.com to learn more about it (and how you can be a part of it). The snow should probably be gone by then.


Valentine's Day 2014

(Sign up for our emails and get nice pictures like this from us. Only occasionally. You won't get sick of us. Let me know at john@johneck.com.)
