A Winter Hike in Mesa, Arizona

We’ve had good winter rains in the Sonoran Desert and are now hoping for a great wildflower season. Maybe it’s already begun! While out with a hiking group, Farraday (black cap, rear middle) spotted a lovely Shrubby Deervetch (Lotus rigidus) in bloom, AKA Bush Trefoil or Desert Rock Pea. This shrubby legume grows to approx. 3’ in diameter, blooming February through May.

That’s Mt. McDowell (commonly known as Red Mountain) in the rear, located on Salt River Pima-Maricopa tribal land. It was named after General Irvin McDowell, a union officer in the Civil War, and not to be confused with a different mountain, McDowell Peak, eleven miles away.

Studio Work in Progress

This group of Jeff Reich‘s faceted vases are drying and awaiting a bisque firing.

Photo to right: Taken during our hike, which was in east Mesa on the Maricopa Trail system in the hills south of the Salt River.

Jeff has been making a series of smaller works, including dinnerware and the faceted pots below. Cool winter days are the best time here in the Sonoran desert to work with wet clay. Keeping the clay uniformly moist during the making process becomes increasingly difficult as we head towards summer.

Farraday has been finishing some glazing this month, but will be turning to wet clay soon!
