"Artistic Expression" --by RusticWoodArt

05-17-2007 01:45 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Artistic Expression ....skin of choice they came and asked, till in my thinking i thought to add, “give me an outer of corky dead fibrous cells, so i can be inner living with sapwood and heartwood….” —-ah yes, it doesn’t get much better than this, since from my before beginning, i have progressed in size to that of highly aged wood…. —-and so the many came as they sought me, fought over me in the playing fields of forest god’s, where i ...

"Teller of Life’ as I Now Live Wood" --by RusticWoodArt #6: "Open Slathers of...."

05-11-2007 04:20 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Open Slathers of…. ....these moments of time, are but the beginning of my processed self, where i have long ago given up the shape of being right, as i am now extolled into the more of this thing called oneness…. —-and where does my oneness spring from, if not from the heart of one who has all-ready made a master’s plan, just as this one i came to know as ‘old timer’, has also exposed my heart of longing to be an artist of some sorts…. —...

"Evergreens of Ages Now" --by RusticWoodArt

05-08-2007 01:56 PM by frank | 1 comment »

Evergreens of Ages Now ....and as i stood gazing into the heavens, i was re-minded of some whisperings that had once passed before, “is not the right to critique with gawker’s of leavens, what keeps one from entering through the door”.... —-while in the midst of hearing cloudy swirls, goes my thought-full yesterday’s of waundering walkabouts, and to my wondering eye in need of joy-full sounding purls, comes the awakened dreams within of knowing my inner-clo...

"A Kings Gathering" --by RusticWoodArt

05-07-2007 12:50 PM by frank | 2 comments »

A Kings Gathering ....and just as this morning comes in freshness rising over the land, what will my day be likened to when all my days are done, and where comes now this cup of tea with heady romantic after-thoughts, while in my bosom the knarly hands of fate have sealed my day…. —-i am the breathe of subtile golden delight, that wings it’s way over fields that are coming awake, and in my soul there still sours the after-taste of blight, which had caught me unarmed as...

"Gathering Wood Cognition" --by RusticWoodArt

05-02-2007 02:03 PM by frank | 7 comments »

Gathering Wood Cognition ....so I came to waundering forth into the breaking of a new dawn, where sunlights of dew laden drops made glad the heart felt of earthen warmth, till in my journey i breathed the golden ether of flowers starting to weather, and in this passing of time i was thank-full to start the day…. ....and as the day came close to ending dusk, i shed my tools of schedule to go and play where childhood enables, since in this walk of streams gone free of snow melt dribble...

End of April Update, with a Diversified Methodology for running an art-based business

04-30-2007 05:30 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 15 comments »

Wow, 19 days since I last blogged. What have I been doing? Working has been on the forefront of my mind this past month, with mounting medical bills from the “March from Hell” and prior commitments and deadlines, keeping me busy, but not typing much. I am starting to get a lot of personal emails, and they have been the focus of my computer time lately. I keep thinking that I’m nearing the end of my current commission work for St. Anthony’s church, and then I find another reason to keep ...

this artisan house #3: two more for the kitchen

03-17-2007 06:11 PM by scottb | 10 comments »

Now I have a pair of tongs and a pair of spurtles right next to the stove. Why do I seem to be making my own tools in pairs? At least I think I’ll get more use out of the tongs than the (so far unused) spurtles. At least they were educational when I was learning how to turn them! I won’t stop at two tongs though. I have a pair of whisk style tongs with plastic handles that have broken. I should be able to epoxy the business end of the tool into a matching oak handle. The...

this artisan house #2: more from the artisan kitchen

01-01-2007 02:42 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

The two spurtles I made last fall in a woodturning class. The top one is oak the bottom is cherry. Both are finished with walnut oil, and so far remain unused. I’ve only seen Alton Brown over on the Food Network use one to make oatmeal, or perhaps it was haggis. I just don’t seem to make enough of either to neccessitate two spurtles! The turner, my brother-in-law liberated from a broken cutting board. Maple. I posted this entry pretty much verbatim over at wordpress (oh ...

this artisan house #1: artisan household

12-30-2006 07:13 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

Back in my lumberjocks interview, I mentioned one of my lifelong goals was to fill the house with useful items made by myself, as well as other artists and artisans. (while paring down all the cheaply made, hand-me-down, and mass manufactured items) Here’s a quick first look at how things have been shaping up over the past several years. My wifes cousin, Tim made these pottery bowls as a wedding gift, even stamped them with his own chop (signature) before firing and glazing. T...
