This was Caitlin’s last day on the job at the Clay Art Center as she and her husband, Cory Brown http://www.cory-brown.com, are off to Alfred University, where he starts his MFA program this fall.

After Farraday’s opening weekend in Port Chester, New York and a couple of days of R&R in the lovely, forested countryside of Pound Ridge, New York, we enjoyed a week in Manhattan!

One of the stunning unicorn tapestries at The Cloisters, part of the Metropolitan Museum and located at the north edge of Manhattan.

This dress, made of blue and white porcelain, was one of many fabulous pieces in the tremendous exhibit China: Through the Looking Glass at the Metropolitan Museum. http://www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions/listings/2015/china-through-the-looking-glass

An example of  tin-glazed earthenware (maiolica) that Henri Matisse glazed in Andre Metthey’s studio in Paris, 1904-07. Matisse often included his dishes in paintings: this dish is depicted in the lower left corner of the painting.

On the rooftop of the Met with a view of Central Park. Left to right: Farraday Newsome, Jeff Reich, Chris Kuehne and Linda Kuehne.

We saw this David Smith sculpture at the new Whitney Museum, which relocated to Chelsea and opened few weeks ago. The new building is beautiful, full of light. There is an outside balcony on each floor, each  with great views of the city.

Indigo Street Pottery Kitchen Garden

Jeff with a bowl of apricots, Swiss Chard and a green bell pepper - a nice morning’s haul!

Photos above, left to right: Our jalapeno peppers are starting to turn from green to red; Thornless Natchez Blackberries are ripening in great and delicious profusion; the Arctic Star White Nectarines are also starting to ripen .

We tie organza bags over each ripening fig on our Texas Blue Giant Fig to keep ants from getting in the slightly open “eye” at the end of each fruit and spoiling it.

Farraday, along the Hudson River in Chelsea with New York-based ceramic artist Neil Tetkowski. Neil is describing how he was riding his bike along the river in this area on September 11, 2001 and witnessed the attack on the Twin Towers. He had his camera with him and the photos he took that day are on his website. http://www.tetkowski.com/artwork/september.11.html

Jeff enjoying a forest training run in beautiful, rural Pound Ridge, New York. Jeff also ran the Brooklyn Half Marathon with Neil Tetkowski and 25,000 other registered runners (!).

A view of midtown Manhattan from the north edge of Central Park’s large Reservoir.

Our trip to New York was terrific, but it is always good to come home! Tomatoes are ripening, greens are burgeoning and the fruit trees are laden with ripe fruit. May is usually hot and dry, but we came home to an unusually lush garden after an unseasonable full inch of rain while we were gone.

Farraday talking with Martha Vida, Founder and Executive Director of The Marks Project. The Marks Project is the first searchable database of studio ceramic artists working in America from 1946 to the present. The Project is working with curators, gallerists, collectors and art historians across the country to create and maintain a reliable research and identification tool to attribute ceramic works to the correct maker. All ceramic artists are encouraged to register their marks, free of charge, at the project’s website.  http://themarksproject.org

A wonderful Joel Shapiro sculpture that we saw at the  Museum of Modern Art  (MOMA) in NY.
