..which happened on Thursday and is being posted on Friday!
Wednesday, I went into that "vortex" of art, of working in the studio on two pieces being gifted to special people in my life for Yuletide.
But Thursday I got out and headed to the River Arts District to see Matt Tommey and his spectacular baskets. Spent some time just talking art and creativity with Matt. He gathers all his materials, and has so much "stock" neatly organized in his studio. There are sticks, kudzu, twigs, copper tubing, all waiting for the artist's vision and touch. Nice to watch him working on hard clay pot, patiently painted those piece. Matt's studio is at 191 Lyman Street....stop by an see in work. And check out his website: http://www.matttommey.com
