Event Opening Invitation

And you thought I only did birthday parties.

This makes 2 down, not that many to go on my list. This is an invitation I created using photoshop and illustrator and lots and lots of emails back and forth to the museum. The American Museum of Ceramic Art that is. The have an upcoming show centered around Pre-Columbian pottery, also featuring two contemporary artists.

I feel like I really connect with all things ceramic, mostly because I had clay in my hand from infancy. My mother (director of said museum) started out as a potter (well, not started out but, well, you get the point) she threw pots for 30 years, 3 kids, a second marriage and one major hand injury. I really get a kick out of working with my mom, my most important client.

Anyway, here is the (not quite final) invitation (but close enough).
