Fake Museums Rock

I recently went to see my friend Mary Anne Kluth's amazing show at Frey Norris Gallery in San Francisco that includes watercolors, ceramic rocks, detailed dioramas, and photographs in the style of a museum exhibit. Everything is so thoughtfully done, beautifully crafted with painstaking detail, and with a little bit of quirk. Just a few of the many, many pieces on view:

Iceland a Raindrop of Lava
C-print on aluminum

I really love these painted ceramic wood stumps!

Chunk of Wood Shaped, a Cross Section Out of a Tree, with Crystals Inside, Different Colors 1 and 2
glazed ceramic, cone 06

And this is just a really awesome looking rock!

Because of These Reaction Rings
Watercolor and graphite on paper

I really do hope you will check out the show - it is up until August 27th, so scurry yourself over there before it closes!! :)

San Diego Bicycle Fashion Showcase

The San Diego Custom Bicycle Show has come and gone - It was a fun, hectic, chaotic weekend. We set up our booth on Thursday night, with the show open through the weekend.
The bike and fashion showcase took place on Saturday.

Fittings for the models (mostly bike builders) took place in B.Spoke Tailor's booth

Penny farthing! The original fixie.

I attempted to take photos of the actual show, but my camera really doesn't do action shots, but you can check out  some show photos by Jeff Thrasher on Flickr, and photos of some of the bikes at the show on VeloCult's site (thanks to them for hosting the afterparty!).

Bike and Fashion Showcase

Sorry for the hiatus everyone! It's been a busy year and I can't believe it's already April! I've been helping organize the Bike and Fashion Showcase, taking place at the San Diego Custom Bicycle Show next weekend.
All you bike enthusiasts should definitely check it out if you're  in the area! The fashion show takes place on Friday night at 5pm and will feature a variety of custom bicycles and bike fashions by mostly independent designers. Should be a fun time!
