Jeff Reich and Farraday Newsome will once again be participating in the annual Gala Dinner Art Auction at the Phoenix Art Museum to be held February 16, 2013. This event is sponsored by the Contemporary Forum, an auxiliary group of the Phoenix Art Museum dedicated to raising money for museum acquisitions, contemporary exhibitions, support for artists, U.S. and foreign travel, gallery and salon events, architectural tours, and  arts lectures and films. This is a major fundraiser for this worthy group.

Let the “designated seed cucumber” get really big on the vine and go yellow. This aged lunker is an Armenian cucumber.

Cut off the ends and cut the cucumber in half.

Use a spoon to scoop the seeds into a glass dish or jar.

Pour water over the seeds and let it all sit for  several days to “ferment”. This helps dissolve the pulp that surrounds all the seeds.

Waiting for the pulp to break down. We seed-saved both Armenian and Striped Serpent Cucumbers, which grew in very different parts of the yard so as not to be cross-pollinated.

Jeff spotted this volunteer baby saguaro cactus (Carnegiea gigantea) in our back yard this month. It is already about five inches tall! Saguaros only grow from seeds and they are slow growers. This one is probably several years old, maybe more.


It is nestled in turpentine brush, downslope from two mature saguaros that fruit mightily each year. Many birds feast on the fruit, so it is a likely spot for germination, but still a wonderful surprise!

After 4 days I’m washing the seeds in a sieve, with most of the dissolved pulp washing  off.

Farraday has been working on a commission for the Rochester, Minnesota Mayo Clinic for the past couple of months.  The commission is for two platters, each approximately 26” in diameter,  with high relief imagery of native flora and fauna of Minnesota.


They are nearing completion and the finished platters will be featured in next month’s newsletter.


The photos below are of the two proposal drawings, the two drying large greenware platters, and Farraday glazing one of the platters with birch trees and Eastern Swallowtail butterflies.
