Gallery statement:

This bowl is glazed in the colors of moonlight. A desert hawkmoth, its head buried in the pollen-laden, beautiful white flower of a Queen of the Night cactus, gathers nectar as it concurrently pollinates the flower. This occurs amidst intertwining cactus branches and egg clusters. The drifting watch alludes to biological time, the playing card to chance and random odds, while the eggs, flower and pollination refer directly to fertility and regeneration.

Farraday Newsome and Jeff Reich, Queen of the Night, glazed terra cotta, 3.5 x 11.5 x 11.5”, 2007

This bowl, made collaboratively by Jeff Reich (wet clay) and Farraday Newsome (glazing), is on display at Tohono Chul Park Gallery’s current exhibition In Full Bloom.


The show runs February 19 through April 24, 2016.  http://tohonochulpark.org/exhibits/

Indigo Street Pottery Kitchen Garden Note

A mass of flowering Baja Spurge (Euphorbia xanti), a succulent shrub native to Baja California.

March is our favorite time in the kitchen garden. Winter vegetables like lettuce, chard and kale are still going strong, while summer crops like tomatoes and peppers are gaining a foothold. It is still pleasant to be outside with mornings cool and daytime temperatures mildly warm.

Desert Running

A Recent Commission by Farraday Newsome

Jeff (with Skye, our dog, behind him ready to run!) and Farraday at Usery Mountain Regional Park at sunrise before a five mile run. After over two years of dealing with a major ruptured ligament in her foot, Farraday is once again joining Jeff for desert trail runs! An initial incorrect diagnosis was followed by many months of misguided therapy and worsening symptoms. A second diagnosis and MRI resulted in immediate surgery. Happily, after the predicted full year of (slow!) post-op recovery, here we are!

Farraday Newsome helping to unwrap the bottom section of Jeff Reich’s sculpture for installation in a private Paradise Valley, Arizona residence.

The sculpture fully installed.

A second Jeff Reich stoneware sculpture, Winter Thorns, placed in the same residence.

This piece was made this spring for a private collector in Tempe, Arizona.

Arugula, green onions, lettuce, kale, and Swiss Chard. Yellow freesia for cut flowers is growing under a nectarine tree.

Collard greens and Swiss Chard.

Rainbow Swiss Chard - beautiful and a “super-food”!

Fragrant sweet peas trellised in front of the flowering Anna’s Apple tree. Many people are surprised to find us growing apples in the desert, but varieties like this one are desert adapted, delicious and very productive!

Our towering saguaros catching the low evening light. They will develop large flower buds soon for late spring/early summer flowering.

A mix of flowering yellow and red native chuparosas (Justicia californica) are a favorite natural nectar source for Anna’s and Black-chinned Hummingbirds.

This verdin nest is tightly woven into one of our Palo Verde trees, its small round entrance hole evident but protected.

Farraday, trail running.
