An elk herd we came across during a walk on our first evening in beautiful Banff, Canada.

After our workshops were over, we hit the road to see the Canadian Rockies. FIrst stop: Banff!


Above left and right: The Banff Centre, an internationally renowned arts facility. The centre offers accommodations and studio space for musicians, visual artists, gallerists, and more. There are galleries, restaurants and even a large indoor swimming pool for residents. From arts-related conferences to solitary residencies, from music huts and artist studios to communal work spaces, this facility has it all.  http://www.banffcentre.ca

Below, clockwise from upper left: One of the catenary-arched salt kiln chambers in the ceramics area of the Banff Centre; a larger view of the double-chambered catenary-arched kiln; metal sculpture at Banff Center; patio view from above the Banff Centre kiln area.

Below left: The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, historic and gorgeous. Our portobello mushroom burger lunch included a garnish of a fruited sprig of fresh native gooseberry!

Below right: The turquoise-green Bow River runs through Banff and below the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.

Below: Here we are in front of lovely Lake Louise. We were spellbound by the milky, light blue-green water of so many of the glacier-fed lakes and rivers in the high Rockies. So beautiful!


We learned that the color and milkiness is due to rock flour (or glacial flour), which consists of fine-grained particles of rock, generated by mechanical grinding of bedrock by glacial erosion. Because the material is very small, it becomes suspended in river water making the water appear cloudy, which is sometimes known as glacial milk. When the sediments enter a river, it turns the river's color gray, light brown, iridescent blue-green, or milky white. If the river flows into a  glacial lake (like Lake Louise, photo below) the lake may appear  a milky turquoise in  as a result.

                                 New Lark Book:

     The Best Of 500 Ceramics, Celebrating A Decade In Clay

Jeff and Farraday are thrilled and honored to be both invited jurors and contributors in this newest of the Lark 500 Books series: The Best of 500 Ceramics, Celebrating a A Decade in Clay. It has just been released and is hardcover.  The book is full of gorgeous photographs of studio ceramics and commentary throughout by the various jurors.

Jeff Reich and Farraday Newsome recently conducted a two day hands-on workshop for the St. Albert Potter’s Guild of Alberta, Canada.


Photos below, clockwise from upper left: Jeff constructing one of his sculptures, delighting onlooking workshop participants; Jeff adding the third section of his sculpture; workshop participants building sculptures; Farraday (lower left in photo) teaching techniques of her version of maiolica, which uses glazes on the white maiolica glaze rather than washes.

It is the annual monsoon season, which is the hot, humid, rainy season here in the Sonoran Desert.

While we were gone the garden was on a drip watering timer, so with that and some additional rain the cucumbers went wild! The dark green striped ones are Striped Serpent Cucumbers and the light green ones are Armenian Cucumbers.

There was also a heavy load of eggplants (which we roasted on the gas stove top and froze to make future batches of babaganoush) and red, ripe jalapenos that are now picked and smoked to make chipotles (we used mesquite chips in the smoker).
