This month Reich’s piece was successfully bisque fired, taking several days to candle and then slowly fired to temperature. This photo was taken just after the kiln was lit.

Studio Work in Progress

This recently commissioned sculpture by Jeff Reich has been slowly drying for the past month. Its construction was featured in our February 2019 Newsletter.

Jeff Reich, accompanied by our dog Skye, came in 1st in his age group and 9th overall in the half marathon at the recent 11th Annual Brian Mickelsen Memorial Walk/Run in Cottonwood, Arizona.


The event honors Brian Mickelsen, the beloved former Cottonwood city manager who died tragically and mysteriously in 2007 while out on a typical morning run. Brian's wife has overseen every year of the race, making sure the event lives up to her late husband's standards.


During this year’s event we saw many city workers racing and volunteering at the event. Funds have gone to various causes over the years, including the Search Dog Unit of the Yavapai County Sheriff's Response Team.

Farraday Newsome will be included in the upcoming summer show Roadside USA at the i.d.e.a. Museum in Mesa, Arizona. Twenty-one artists from across the country, including Arizona, will be represented in this exhibition. Museum art-making activities and interactives will focus on exploring the five regions of the United States. Newsome’s work, featuring imagery of aspens and their leaves, will be among works with a Rocky Mountain and Northern Arizona theme.

Another recent commission for Farraday was a set of tiles and bowl in a poppy motif. Above is a behind-the-scenes peek of the testing often involved in developing a new idea. In this case, a preliminary line-blend test tile of orange to red glaze (with a brushed yellow glaze overlay) to determine the poppy colors, then a preliminary poppies test tile. This photo also shows the commissioned tiles and bowls with charcoal drawing and initial glazing.

A fired, completed set!

After we published this photo of in-progress greenware by Farraday Newsome in the February 2019 Newsletter, some of our readers asked for “after” photos when the works were finished. Thank-you for asking and here they are!

The teapot in the upper left greenware (wet clay) photo was a commission with a request for a sunflower motif. Here is the finished teapot!

These two lidded jars are, respectively, in the  lower left and lower center of the greenware photo. They were recently shown with ARC Contemporary Fine Art during NCECA in Minneapolis, MN (an event featured in our April 2019  and May 2019 Newsletters).

Photos above: Two of our younger trees (top: grapefruit; bottom: lemon) with a fresh ring of wood chips. We have a wire cage cylinder around the base of each tree to prevent chips and moisture from rotting the trunks. This was a good gardening chore to do before the summer heat set in!

We recently ordered a load of wood chips (free!) from a local tree trimmer and piled them around many of our fruit trees. Not only do the wood chips act as a moisture-retaining mulch, but they enrich the soil with slowly released nitrogen as they break down. The tree trimmers were happy to oblige since it saves them a pricey trip to the dump where the chips would end up in the landfill.

The spring bloom season of colorful desert annuals is over, but now it’s time for a second show: desert perennials! 

Photos, clockwise from above left: Beavertail Prickly Pear (Opuntia basilaris), native to the American southwest and northern Mexico; Tecoma alata, (formerly known as Tecoma stans ‘Orange Jubilee’, origin Peru; Bougainvillea ‘Barbara Karst’, origin South America.
