All I See Is No-Junk In my world, (and not as the lines where some see, when the plane of time is split as between earth and heaven….what those jokester’s of wordy word explanations first told us, to limit us into seeing their definitions of linear horizons….hmmm, quite a word spread there//here) means; there is no-junk! How can one see junk, when the world is filled with the beauty of creative genus and we as workers of wood are part of this process? And so it was tha...
Looking at Jonke ....and so i went walking in search of some jonke,that there word of middle age time frame of mind,and what i found was not some more latin names for juncus,but what i searched for was before mine eyes all-ready as ‘junk art’.... —-one can get so lost in the definitions that are imposed upon us,till it seems that our mind just can-not shake free and see,those boxes are ever around to drown the imagination of mind,while other’s pray to keep th...
Jubilant Glory-Be ....detritus wood fiber,as i shift through these un-sorted images,that have a way of re-minding me of my topographic with beauty,where out here i am caught between two worlds….—by flp ———————————————————————————————————————...
My wife, Penny, and I recently finished our first marathon. At least that’s what it felt like after attending the giant Artropolis Art Fair at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago.More… Giant doesn’t begin to describe it. 5 separate shows on 3 full floors of the Mart. 4 contemporary art shows and one antiques fair. The centerpiece is Art Chicago, featuring 180 galleries from around the world showing over 2000 artists. NEXT is almost as large and is focused on cutting edge and ...
This is a wonderfully casual interview with two renowned designers. Even if their designs disagree with your own thoughts on the subject, they offer some very insightful views on why and how they design. Also, a brief description of how the design for their sofa evolved through discussions with their manufacturer. There is a section in the middle where they are preparing a meal and their cats are running around….. try to push through because there are some great moments all the way t...
Known mainly for their kitchens, Henry Built produces some stunning modern wood furniture.
Polyporus betulinus ....just thought I would post a shot of one of my keepers of the ideas that fungi around inside my head, before manifesting their molds of desire in the mind-full beauty of ‘wood art’…. And so if any want to follow, then here’s a short course in General Mycology….or as some may say,....WHO-ology and WHAT-ology….! Walking the woods and gathering wood is not the only thing I gather, since what good is wood unless ones starts to un...
Wordy Wooder ....being born this way with a head filled full of words, and then next came the realization that my hands were created, to give expression to the images that swirled around within, while playing the part of verbal misfit, until the day my morning opened up and I saw wood…. One ought to ask them-selves first of all, who-what-where-when and how do I fit in? Without asking these questions that same one will fall prey, to all the other’s coming along and across one...
When last we met, the level of clutter in my basement shop area had hindered my desire to be there. But a recent disaster quickly disposed of the clutter. My shop space is cleaner and more comfortable than it ever was, and the clutter is GONE! You can see more pictures of the newly cleared shop space in my Workshop section here at LumberJocks. It’s good to be back.
Screeching Laughter of Owly Wood ....wherefore comes this walking waunderer of zenith’s quest, with feet planted firmly bearing azimuth’s best, north was my starting till i touched 90 degree at east, and then i finished by coming full circle with accumulated zest…. —-if i should ever stop, in this well-full driven purpose of eating frenzy, as to what i have be-come, then pay no-attention to what i might have been, and know that for sure my spirit has taken flight...
