Wood Spirit Gallery.

I'm just finishing the editing on a new batch of photos I shot for Wood Spirit Gallery a couple weeks ago. April and Jarrod are making some really beautiful things using some very traditional methods. As always, the really fun part of this job is talking to people and learning about what they do. I learned a ton during this shoot just by watching them work. For example, Jarrod uses a pole lathe to make bowls. It's an ancient technique that dates back to the 9th century (maybe earlier) when the Vikings were using it to make ale bowls. I understood the basic concept of this tool before this shoot, but this was the first time I'd actually seen one in use. And let me say it's a cool system. Very simple, but effective, especially with an artisan like Jarrod at the treadle. Check out their site for more info about what they make. And stay tuned for some more interesting photos in the next couple weeks.

Ochre Ghost Gallery, Duluth.

The {Body} series is getting hauled out of storage and polished up this week to make another public appearance (Thanks to Noah at StageNorth for some behind the scenes help). This time the show is going to hang at Ochre Ghost Gallery in Duluth, Minnnesota. I'll be there getting it all up ont he walls Thursday evening this week and the show will be up pretty much through the end of June (the 29th, I think). Everyone should stop in for the opening reception on Saturday, June 18 from 7-10 p.m. I'll be there and I might even get cleaned up for the occassion. We'll see, no promises. I'm pretty excited to get it in front of some more new eyes and see what people think. Duluth, here we come.

Just a reminder the whole show is also available as a print magazine here:
