“The purely esthetic observer has for the moment forgotten his own soul.” ~ Bob Marshall
Welcome back! If you follow along, I apologize for the hiatus in content as of late. We took a week off last September and made a trip to bum around northern New Mexico, and while there, I came across a book on Mimbres Pottery. I’ve been struck by the simplicity and beauty of their designs ever since. As a challenge to myself and as a way to step out of the “Fly Fishing” only art. I’ve decided to commit myself to create 12 pieces inspired by this new found style. The combination of learning the history of these people, the natural aesthetics of the region, and using the latest technology to reimagine their work has given me much pleasure in last few months. These are the first 4 of what will be the 12 piece commitment. Enjoy.

This is a new piece, but if you’re a motorcycle aficionado, you might recognize this as a take on the old Indian Motorcycle, war bonnet logo. I came across a vintage sign of the design a while back and just had to put my spin on it as a new start for the new year!
