I’m lichen it

August 15, 2018


Ceramic artist Olivia Walker throws precise porcelain forms, then covers them in paper-thin accretions. Using porcelain, these organic, lichen-like growths speak of organisms – fungus, coral and bacteria – growing over and devouring the form beneath. Olivia Walker’s current body of work looks at the fine line between growth and decay.


Why am I saying, “crank up the jam!”

August 14, 2018

I really don’t think anyone says that anymore.

Traffic Jam has all the red fruits in it; Bear Jam is based on blackberries; and who knew frogs could taste so good?

Many thanks to Robb.

It’s Tuesday . . .

Wht am I sappy cat blogging?

Nekobusou, or “Armored Cats” in English, were essentially adorable kitty transformers that could wrap themselves with lethal killing machines.

Or maybe they were tasting the waters all along. Regardless, Armored Cats are coming.”
