sunday funny blues






back home i n Carbondale following a mesmerizing Artstream tour thru Texas.  The all too brief stop in  Austin was a delight and the art in both Houston and Dallas (ceramic and otherwise) was transcendant.

I sat for an hour in the Rothko Chapel and then got to stand right where my man Cy is standing in this photograph.

the painting,”1994 Untitled (Say Goodbye Catullus, to the Shores of Asia Minor),” is the best painting i’ve had the fortune to spend time with.

more to come…perhaps…

one to grow on…




a bundle of great pots are packed and loaded into the artstream.

the road crew takes off today and it’s Texas by nitefall.  i’m sure i’ll see a great deal of folks down in Houston.  should you happen to stop by the Artstream Gallery – take a moment to say hello. . .


see you in Houston

i can get 1o…

sunday funny blues…




new for Spring…


trying to freshin things up at this funky joint

so i’ve gotten around to adding new(ish) images up there in the ‘my pots 2o10-2o12’ gallery tab.  i’ve consolidated the old stuff into ‘pots from the past’, started a gallery of process stuff dba ‘wet pots‘ and organized a reference gallery under ‘things i look at’.

it’s all a bit buggy and both my brain and my mac are beginning to smoke – so more tweaks to come…
