We all went to Albert and Tina’s for dinner after community day. Everyone was a little punchy after our long day, and it was nice to relax together. In truth, I was focused on dinner and hadn’t even thought about the collection we would be seeing. Doh. Of course, they would have their pick of work from practically any wood artist in the world. It’s a good thing I downloaded photos from community day and recharged my camera in between, or I would have been kicking myself and begging for a return visit.
Albert tried to get us to guess what artist made the print above the mantel, and we came up dry. Can any of you guess? Robyn Horn. Yes, that Robyn Horn.
I think the name of this ceramic artist is Siminski, but I’ll have to verify it. And the piece of furniture it’s displayed on is by some guy I just recently heard of—Peter Harrison, I think his name is—back in the days when he still occasionally turned.
We had a finger-lickin’ dinner of barbecued ribs and chicken, libations, and good cheer.
And then we went upstairs and looked at more work. These are the two “Japanese” bowls Albert and Tina brought back from AAW this year. The bowl on the left is by Michael Werner; the one on the right, by Merryll Saylan.
I so want a television stand like this one . . .
Albert modeled this collapsible helmet for us.
And when we went down to dessert, we slipped gifts onto their plates: a necklace and a bolo tie, both made by Peter and Jean-François.
