Below: Jeff Reich’s long, functional serving trays have become a customer favorite. He has made an assortment of beautiful new ones for our holiday studio event.  Each is 17” long, 2014.

Above: Jeff has also been working on a series of new, smaller scale sculptures, such as the two pieces above, each approximately 7-8” in their largest dimension.

Below: Farraday Newsome will have an assortment of work during this holiday studio sale event,  ranging in scale from small plates, luminarias and lidded jars to larger pieces such as teapots, vases and wall sculptures.

This year we planted two kinds of snow peas, green  and yellow. The yellow snow peas (in the photo above) are new to us and sport pretty purple flowers. So far we like the color of this new variety but prefer the taste and overall plant vigor of the traditional green snow peas.

The lima beans are still producing heavily. This year we planted Pima Orange, an heirloom variety that we got from Tucson’s Native Seed Search. The large, light pinkish-orange beans inside the green pods cook up with a creamy, nutty flavor.

Winter in the Sonoran Desert has been mild so far, no frosts or freezes yet. Many of our summer vegetables, such as the peppers, cucumbers and beans, are still producing. Planted among the them are maturing winter vegetables such as kale, snow peas, lettuce, pak choi, and broccoli raab. Some of the kale, a biennial, is two years old now and producing on tall stalks. We continue to practice organic gardening techniques, the mainstay of which is applying a thick layer of homemade compost several times a year. The soil continues to improve and is now a very dark brown-black, in contrast to the pale native desert soil we began with five years ago.

Photo above: The absence of frost plus the heavy rains we received in September have resulted in many areas outside the kitchen that are also lush this year. Above is a calamondin bush (a sweet-skinned sour-fleshed citrus, much like a large kumquat) mingling with magenta bougainvillea and native yellow-flowering brittlebush.

Photo above: A visit to Indigo Street Pottery wouldn’t be complete without a walk down through our desert wildscaping for a visit to the kitchen garden!

Above: Farraday talking with workshop participants about the work Jeff Reich and she make in their studio.

Above: Farraday Newsome with local high school students participating in the Visions Teen Workshop at Indigo Street Pottery.

Farraday and Jeff hosted a one-day workshop at Indigo Street Pottery for a dozen teens participating in SMoCA’s Visions Teen Program. These kids were great, listening carefully, asking good questions and working hard on their projects! They learned Farraday’s glazing technique, creating their own designs on prepared tiles. The best thing was their wonderful enthusiasm for art ideas and for art objects.

SMoCA's Visions Teen Program, now in its sixteenth year, brings together approximately 40 high-school art students from diverse Phoenix metropolitan-area high schools for a year-long series of activities designed to cultivate artistic skills, collaboration and civic engagement. The program was founded in 1999 and is based on a strong community partnership between the Museum and participating schools, which represent economically, ethnically and culturally diverse communities.
