The other end of the boardwalk held a yarn installation by @hotxtea that moves with the wind and the people. I really dug the patterned graffiti by @hellbent_ on the outer wall of the old carousel building. #asburypark #jerseyshore

First visit to the Ashbury Park boardwalk. This great old building holds the Paramount Theater and a bunch of small cafes. #asburypark #jerseyshore

Beautiful words and photo by Kim Cummings (@kimberlipottery). I often think about letting go of what I can’t control, so that I can better focus on being compassionate and responsible for what I can. Good reminder that beauty can be a positive mental reset. ・・・
“After a beautiful conversation with Stanton Storer this morning, I walk into my home and am immediately reminded why I’m attracted to the heart and soul of loving and generous human beings like Stan. Like Stanton shared about his connection/attraction to art, here is a spec of what brings me joy every time I walk inside the room; on a bar cart I rescued from Chiseler’s Market and refinished, sits a whiskey jug by @carterpottery (BenCarter), orchids from Thai Temple and (on wall) Robert Rauschenberg’s Bamboo series(USF @graphicstudiofl). While the breaking news keeps breaking my heart, I know I can wrap my eyes around pieces in our home that truly inspire, remind and lift me from the feeling of doom. “ #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #contemporaryceramics #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #contemporarycraft #handmade #poterie #homedecor #redclaylove

We took a break from unpacking this week to visit Monmouth University. It’s a beautiful campus that houses Woodrow Wilson Hall. @m_brzy starts teaching there in the fall, so I made her take pics all over campus like she’s an incoming freshman. 😂#monmouthuniversity

We saw a lot of these vertical grey inclusions in otherwise horizontally deposited sedimentary rock. Not sure how they formed with everything else having perfectly parallel striations. #badlands #badlandsnationalpark

The Badlands are as badass as you would think. Thankful for our #nationalpark system. #badlands  #getoutside

Sad to leave Helena and the @archie_bray family. This last year was a gift. Lots of hikes, new pots, and time spent with new friends. Can’t wait to come back. #archiebray #archiebrayresidency

Bray Bash 2019: Myths and Legends - I went as John Gill to celebrate the legend of John Gill (@gillpottery). Kelsie Rudolph (@kelsiekelsiekelsiekelsie) paid homage to Josh Deweese and @m_brzy went as Megan Rapinoe. It was a great night and a successful fund raiser for the Archie Bray (@archie_bray). #archiebray #braybash2019

My last batch of mugs I used as a test to learn how to use orange. It’s a tricky color. What do you guys think? #ceramics #pottery #studiopottery
