                                 Ceramic Studio Tour                                

Left: Blooming native barberry (Berberis trifoliata)

Middle: Fruiting Habanero pepper that came up as a volunteer, flowering and setting fruit through the winter!

Right: Agave flowerstalk towering up through the mesquite tree canopy, with buds just getting ready to open

Above: Jeff ran the 10K Ethan’s Run, a fundraiser benefitting families through the Nick and Kelly Childrens Heart Fund, to provide financial help to children/families battling congenital heart defects. Jeff got a medal for third in his age class, with a time of 48:54.    http://ethansrunaz.com/  

Left: We both recently ran a 5K event called The Color Run, where volunteers tossed a different color (food safe powder) on the runners at each kilometer mark.  This race wasn’t timed or anything - just a fun time. Proceeds benefitted Banner Health Cardon Children’s Medical Center http://thecolorrun.com/arizona/


Below: Our beloved desert trail in the Usery Regional Park, Mesa, Arizona that we run every week.

Above, clockwise: The entry pagoda at the Japanese Sunken Gardens; Mary Irish and Farraday Newsome at the San Antonio Botanical Garden (large greenhouse in the background); the dragon bridge down in the Japanese Sunken Gardens.


Below: While we were in Texas, Jeff, his daughter Lauren, and Farraday, ran a 5K called Too Cold to Hold, sponsored by the running store Run On where Lauren  works. Lauren was an 8-time All American college runner at DePauw University, Indiana. Jeff pulled down 1st place and a medal in his age class, with Lauren happily running as his pacer. Farraday came in a respectable 5th in her age class, but alas no medal!

We had a great turn-out and perfect weather for the recent Arizona State University Art Museum’s 11th Annual Ceramic Studio Tour. Indigo Street Pottery was one of thirteen sites. It was our 10th year as a host site. This year our guest artists were Les Lawrence, Jaye Lawrence, Sherrie Zeitlin, and Jesse Armstrong. We had a wonderful time meeting so many people interested in studio ceramics!

Photos above, left to right: Jesse Armstrong demonstrating how he makes his press-molded, slip-dipped sculptural parts; Farraday Newsome demonstrated the use of pounce patterns and her method of maiolica glazing.

While we were in San Antonio, Texas recently we visited the Japanese Tea Garden (Sunken Gardens), a fantastic other-worldly space constructed down in an old quarry back in 1915.

We also visited the San Antonio Botanical Gardens. This outing was especially great since we were with our long-time friends and Southwest plant experts Mary and Gary Irish.
