Heavy Rains....

We have had massive rains for ages now and I almost forgot that before it all got started we had a neat looking twister on the horizon. I saw it as I was getting in the car out front of the house. Please excuse the quality of the video, but it was taken quickly as I didn't know how long it would appear. I think it just went up the coast and a week of bucketing rain followed.

One of the Items I Most Treasure By an Artist

Ever since College, I have always had a soft spot for a jeweler/sculptor turned industrial designer. The fact that he attended the same college probably plays a part in it. I must say, his designs were all outstanding. He did some work for alessi for a while. His name is Marc Newson.
My most favorite piece of his is the sleek aluminium Lockheed lounge. He has done so many interesting pieces that it is always difficult to choose only one.

I would love to have it in the studio! I gather that a collector already owns it...


It was one of the early pieces. I have always treasured this "lounge" and have always wanted it for my studio.
