OCTOBER 17,2015

I have just returned from a really great vacation. I went to France and Spain visiting my friend Sarah Kay (furniture designer) and her wonderful husband Pep. I saw many incredible things and ate a lot of great food. I got to help Sarah a little with some turning technicalities for her new chair design. What an experience it was! I ended my trip in Paris visiting my old friend David Sackrider and his family. I realize how many people my woodworking career has allowed me to meet over the years, and am grateful.  Although I travel quite a bit for work, I had not actually been on a vacation for over a year. It was a rich experience that has rejuvenated my thinking, and will have an impact on my art work. Here is a pictorial journal of my journey.

    Looks like you had a great time! The food and the architecture were fantastic!

    There is a guy in the Venice, FL weekly farmers market that cooks a paella each week and sells it in dishes to eat there or in boxes to take home. He has a pan like the one that you show. I’d never seen it done outdoors, only in restaurants. Very cool…
