10th Annual Simple Cup Invitational Show

Kobo Gallery, Seattle OR

Fall is a wonderful time in a Sonoran desert vegetable garden. The little lettuce, arugula and bok choy transplants that we showed in last month’s newsletter gave grown large enough to no longer need their protective plastic collars. Better yet, they already supply us with daily salads! Summer vegetables that survived the summer heat have renewed vigor, such as the fruiting bell pepper in the center photo.

Chicago Marathon and Visit

Marsden Hartley, The Last of New England - The Beginning of New Mexico, oil on cardboard, 1918/19

Georgia O’Keeffe, Red and Pink Rocks and Teeth, oil on canvas, 1938

Jeff Reich recently ran the 2016 Chicago Marathon, which started and finished near Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park.

We also visited the Chicago Field Museum to see the China’s First Emperor and HisTerra Cotta Warriors show featuring full-size clay warriors and numerous metal objects found at the ongoing archaeological dig in China’s state of Qin. The site is the elaborate tomb complex of Ying Zheng, who became King of  Qin in 246 BCE and Emperor  of China in 221 BCE. The first terra cotta warrior was found here in 1974 by a farmer tilling his field. The actual tomb itself has not yet been excavated. It is currently a large earthen mound standing 250 feet high and covered in forest.

Although actual soldiers of the time wore lacquered leather armor constructed as in the photo above, the 87 suits of armor found at this tomb site were made of pieces of stone, appropriate for an eternal army.

Jeff Reich catching a photo op with the Emperor’s Army!

Many of the full-scale terra cotta figures stand before a wall-sized video that documents the excavation of the vast site.

We saw “W” flags hanging all over Chicago one day that were celebrating the Chicago Cubs’ previous night’s win in the baseball playoffs. At the Field Museum a pterodactyl flys high above the crowds proudly displaying its “W” flag, while a carved marble child sports a Cubs’ uniform top.

In Grant Park we walked past a series of large, beautiful kitchen gardens near the Buckingham Fountain. These gorgeous organic gardens have over 150 heritage and heirloom vegetables, edible flowers, and herbs from all over the world. The garden is managed by Growing Power, a nonprofit organization and land trust.  www.growingpower.org

There will be new birds-on-a-wire. These popular items are glazed terra cotta birds epoxied to solid copper wire &  meant for putting in the yard or a planter or whatever you dream up! $30 each, as always.

This month we are busily working on new items for the 2016 holiday sale. Below are photos of work and set-ups from past holiday studio sales.

This year’s Indigo Street Pottery Holiday Studio Sale will once again be held the first two weekends of December:

Saturday, December 3 10am - 4pm

Our Holiday Studio Sale will be set up in our studio workspace as well as in our showroom. We hope you can come by to enjoy the art display, as well as our large garden, hot coffee and snacks. We will have beautiful work in a wide price range, with items from under $50 on up to collector range. We  are  delighted  that you make time to visit and give us a chance to  catch up with how you’ve been this past year. Garden tours for the asking!

There is always a mixture of work by Farraday Newsome and by Jeff Reich in our year-around showroom.

There will also be plenty of cups to choose from!

In addition to using our showroom for the sale, we put cloths over our studio work tables and transform our work area into more display space. There will be a large selection of various-sized plates, bowls, cups, tiles, small and large sculptures, as well as oil and acrylic paintings by both of us. We hope you can come by and check it all out!

Jeff  Reich ran the 2016 Chicago Marathon. We stayed a few extra days to see the sights and visit nearby family.

When we visited the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art there was a wonderful farmer’s market in front of the museum. We learned that it takes place every Tuesday during the summer and fall.


We also  visited the Chicago Art Institute. The photos below are a few favorites from that visit.

This metal sculpture by Joel Shapiro is also in Grant Park. It is sited near the Lake Michigan shoreline path.
