Mixed Media titled Countdown reconfigured plans


      A new mixed media piece this one is 17" x 20"  incorporates drawing and a bit of collage.  I used some old blueprints for the foundation and then layered pen, pencil, color markers and colored pencils, thinking a lot about the fragility of life and how generally we take for granted our health and mobility.

New bowls and small teapots out of the high fire kiln


A bunch of new bowls and teapots out of the high fire kiln the other day. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. I had a few duds and had the lids of two tea pots fused onto the body! I tried to remove the lids but to no avail. Had to break one of the lids and saved the teapot body and i'll make a lid later. 
Most of these small bowls i'm using Black mountain clay and glazing with tenmoku, carbon trap shino and . I really enjoy the subtle changes in color and distressed look to these bowls.















      This small teapot has an iron oxide wash on the lower part of the form and the top is glazed with carbon trap shino and then a white glaze in the interior of the teapot.

This small teapot  has iron oxide wash and left raw on the top half with a white glaze dipped halfway  and on the inside of the pot. I like how the white glaze and iron oxide worked together to produce that spotted grey distressed look.

 Got to witness a blistering, powerful, polished performance by these guys the other evening at the Echoplex.  More like a ritual than a rock n roll show!

Found this X-ray of mine in the garage the other day.. I can't believe its been 6 years since my neck injury in the ocean. I am grateful for everything and everyone, especially Ed Dimik and larry for dragging my ass back to shore when i couldn't move and saving my life, and my wife and kids for putting up with me when I couldn't drive, ride a bike or get around very well.

PSYCHOBUD photographs Waiting For The Accident

I took these photos of Psychobud at Radio City I believe around 1984/5. Saw them a bunch back then they were killer live, all great musicians. Their self titled LP is still great to listen to after all these years and I believe that back then they were ahead of their time, Waiting for the Accident and Sighs are my favorite songs on that album.

mixed media collage

A new one I've been working on part of a triptych this is one panel of the piece. This one side is 9'x7" the total size of the triptych is 27"'x21"  It is titled -  In and Out of Consciousness. I'm using as the foundation the covers of hardback books and then I glue paper that is sourced from various old books, maps, typewritten paper, transparent paper and finish up with water color and pencil.
