A New Kiln

Thanks to a hot tip from Tim Ayers, I found this car kiln near our place in Orange County. It took Chris and I about 3 days to dismantle and then put on pallets in one of our sheds. It will take a bit to pour a concrete pad and re-assemble, but I will try to keep updates on here.

Inspirations at a Thrift Store in Homosassa Fl

Thanks to Hannah for taking these pictures.
I love the forms, I think my next long term project is going to be a still life photo series taken in thrift stores across the country.

New Years Day, Swimming with Manatees

Yes, this happened.

On Dec. 31st, Hannah, Nick, Matt and Sita went swimming with the manatee residents of 3 Sisters Springs in Crystal River, FL. We all piled into Matt's mini van, drove to Homosassa, slept in an RV park, woke up at 5am, put on wet suits, met the coolest captain ever (he looked EXACTLY like the Dude in Big Lebowski), and then swam with Florida's most benevolent megafauna, the manatee. Thank you to Captain Glenn (aka the Dude) for taking these amazing pictures!
