The End of the Road

The End of the Road

It’s fall. Our fall in Southern California, anyways, which is not much of a fall. We know; don’t remind us.

This week’s Photo Op comes thanks to ceramist and maker of things, artist Dave Lovejoy… My son David, in Japan, just randomly sent me these pushpin figures. And they look to be the perfect size and attitude for my new escalator piece, for which I had not yet found correctly sized figures. Thanks, David!   [...]
