In early May, Crook's Corner was awarded The James Beard Foundation America's Classics Award!
Back in 1984 (?), Gene Hamer asked me if I wanted to have a show at Crook's. This was to be the first of many shows at the restaurant. At the time I was mainly making sculptural work. The challenge was to develop wall works, and ever since my work has been predominately wall works. Thanks Gene!

that pink color is a red glaze, unfired.
|Various cloud pieces, these are getting|
under-glazed painted and carved.
|New shapes, clouds. These rabbits are in the bisque state,|
I'm not sure how I will glaze it.
