Personal Work.

Starting back in August I began remodeling a room in my house and have finally almost finished it. The room is full of personal work ideas that I’ve had for the last few years that until now have lived on only in my sketch books or the back of my mind. It’s been really great getting to finally start some of them and bring them to life. Above is ‘Color Study #3’ which is from a larger body of color studies I’ve been working on that are about movement and color.

Kokeshi for Herman Miller.

Over the last few months I’ve been working on making a couple large custom sets of my kokeshi for Herman Miller. They are going in their stories in Manhattan and Dallas. Super excited to have made these for them.

Image 109.

‘The Face of the Past’ seems to be the side less seen of Taro Okamoto’s Tower of the Sun from the Expo70 fairgrounds. When I finally got to visit it in Osaka two years ago I had never seen the back side of the tower. It was pretty magical when I did. I entered the park from the central entrance by cab and had to walk over to the Tower of the Sun through the park. All I could see as I approached was the backside of the head to the Face of the Future over the surrounding trees. Then I came to the open grounds where people where hanging out and playing as the huge tower loomed over everyone.

Busy, busy, busy.

The past few months have been busy ones, full of outside projects and studio time. Things are going well and I should have new things in the Store this Fall.
