How to Dispose CDs

Disposed of old data cds by scratching them up with a safety pin. Will recycle them to Best Buy this weekend.

Rare Device & Amy Ross

While in SF, I got to meet Lisa Congdon and Rena Thom and visit their shop, Rare Device. Personally, I think the bag sticker says everything about them - sweet, hand made creative, impeccable taste, and rock stars!

Also got to meet artist Amy Ross, who happen to be having her art opening at the shop. We adored and bought "Gold Finch Shroom".

San Francisco weekend

Spent several relaxing days in SF for a family event this past weekend... wandered into Berkeley's architecture department, took in a view from Grizzly Peak, ate fried smelt from Sea Salt to remind us of Spain, visited Heath Ceramics in Sausalito, and savored outdoor mornings with coffee and the paper by the water.

Documention: Figure Sculptures

In the process of getting rid of stuff, I've been documenting some items. It makes parting just a little bit easier. These are from our figure sculpture classes taught by our friend Damian almost 10 years ago. This particular brand of clay never completely hardens, so several, but not all, needed to go. Such a different dimension with photos.
