March 26 - May 11, 2017:
Galerie du Don
Le Don du Fel

"Mark and Liza are internationally recognized as pioneers in the utilization of metallic soluble salts, a technique relatively unexplored until now. Their creations are clad in exquisite surfaces of delicate and rare shades of color.

Liza, inspired by the parched earth of California, erects totemic sculptures exploring the unexpected poetry of the arid ground, while Mark presents a whole gallery of highly tactile forms, sometimes closed, sometimes open, but always with intriguing and seductive surfaces."

Galerie du Don


This past spring Liza Riddle and I had an exhibition featuring 80 of our works at the beautiful and ethereal Le Don du Fel in south-central France! The gallery located near the village of le Fel in the department of Aveyron, Midi-Pyrénées,France. Le Don du Fel offers "two different panoramas, one on the outstanding landscape of the Lot Valley, and the other on the best of contemporary ceramics."


There are still some of our works available for sale at both Galerie du Don in Le Fel, and also Vitrine du Don in nearby Aurillac.

September 23, 2016 - February, 2017:

Keramikmuseum Westerwald - Höhr-Grenzhausen, Germany


Delighted to discover my equipoise vessels had received juror Thomas Hirschler's commendation award at the 8th Naspa competition!


"My gaze repeatedly returns to the soft, balloon-like forms. The pastel-coloured shapes seem to float. With the pale bubbles on the surface spreading over the entire form with slight variations in size and colour outline, they have a magical attraction. The surface is delicate and light-hearted but in their form with its innate, mysterious power, they seem to breathe.

There is the small, dark aperture, that only looks like one from a distance. It attracts and disconcerts. From close up, the aperture becomes a plane. The black of the interior is so complete that the gaze is unable to penetrate the depths of the vessel, almost as if what is encompassed by the interior space were larger than what can be grasped by the naked eye. Only by testing with a finger does the space open up inwards, a fascinating moment of astonishment. Mark Goudy’s vessels impress with their powerful, warm presence. "

July 15, 2016 - January 2, 2017:

I am so honored to be selected to participate in the 2016 Taiwan Ceramics Biennale competition!


"The construction of the New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum was first proposed in 1988 and opened to the public on November 2000. It has become the leading county museum in Taiwan and the first professional museum wholly dedicated to ceramics. The first modern ceramics museum in the nation combines the essence of the wisdom of the industries, government, and scholars. It raises the signal that the fire in Yingge's kilns will never be extinguished."
