When I was little I used to play with all my mom’s spools of thread. Lining them up. Building castles. I have really vivid memories of this.
Polly likes to open the drawer that has all my gouache in it and play with them. These days she wants to like them all up on my table. “Put them in a line” she says.

Jonas Wood- Interiors.
So thrilled about this. I love how he makes flat and deep space at the same time. And lines, so many beautiful lines.

Christine was one of the first artists I knew in real life who was a regular (super awesome) person living life. I was a rising high school senior. She instilled in me a life-long love of wood grain and opened my eyes to a much wider understanding of what art is.

This piece too. GAH! The scale! The drapey quality! The thing-ness!

My old grad school pal Josh Huyser posted a pic of it on his Instagram (I have a secret one that is technically Polly’s) since he went to the Walker to visit. A trip to Minneapolis -while it SHOULD be happening (this show- and an old friend about to move to France) isn’t in the cards this spring. So instead I’m adding the catalog to my amazon cart.

Great interview with Olga Viso on the link.

Sometimes you see things and wish you had made them.
That’s how I feel about most everything Jim Hodges has made. How have I not seen these scarf pieces before?

My mom brought a bunch of books from my childhood this visit. They’re all for Polly but this one is going to live in the studio.

Ceramic collaboration with Polly two weeks before she turns two.
Still need to fire it. Then it’s off to DC for a benefit.

I might have to do more of these.
