These are the salad days in our late spring garden, just before the big heat of the Sonoran summer descends! Our basket is holding Red Romaine, Simpson’s Black-Seeded, and Red Oak leaf lettuces, nasturtiums, Yellow Detroit beets, and few green onions. Our go-to salad dressing these days is 50% fresh orange juice, 50% balsamic vinegar and a couple tablespoons of chia seeds. We shake it all together and then wait about 15 minutes for the chia seeds to swell, which thickens the watery dressing to a more clingy consistency. Yum!

Pineapple Guava flowering.  We have yet to have any fruit set, but this shrubby tree is still only a few years old. In the meantime, the flowers are delicious!

Peppers and sweet peas growing under the desert-adapted Anna’s Apple tree.

We’ve tied the developing seedstalks of our Lacinato Kale (AKA Dragon Kale) into a bunch so they don’t flop onto the trail as we wait for the seed-filled pods to mature.

Jeff Reich will have a solo exhibition in the Nancy DryFoos Gallery, Kean University Art Galleries, Kean University, New Jersey from May 15 through the end of June, 2014.  The show, entitled Interwoven, will consist of ten wall-hanging sculptures, including a triptych, and four standing sculptures.  http://www.kean.edu/~gallery/Upcoming.html


Reich states,

The clay sculptures I create are inspired by natural formations, such as boulders fallen upon each other, or a tree’s erratic growth during drought.  Geometric forms allude to the manmade.  Leaning forms conjure images of tentative balance.


My glaze compositions consist of two-dimensional fields superimposed on the three-dimensional surface of the clay.  Windows of glaze drawings bring glimpses of repetitive plant forms.   Thorny, sometimes leafless plants, like Allthorn, adorn the surface by means of glaze sgraffitto. Textural glazes invoke thoughts of clay cracking on dry river beds.  Black reminds me of night when the desert is cooler. 


I grew up in Michigan surrounded by water.  Later, when I moved to Arizona, I was surrounded by mountains.  My choice of colors, glazes and form convey my interpretation of nature's presence around us.



Jeff’s work is stoneware, glazed and fired to cone ten in a reducing gas kiln.

We had the recent pleasure of having two oil painters set up and work en pleine aire at Indigo Street Pottery. Deborah White’s in-progress painting is on the left, Shari Jones’ is on the right. It was so fun to have them work here!
