Modern Landscape Masters: Brian Mackin: Counterbalance Sculpture

One of my personal design mantras is ‘go big’ and ‘design like you mean it’ – I mean really, don’t be wimpy.
Brian Mackin means it when he throws ceramic pots that are bigger than he is. Using his whole body, he shape pieces that fit into a kiln 9 ft long and 50 inches square. Used by great hotels, restaurants and retail outlets, his forms are in great demand for both indoors and outdoor garden and landscape applications.

DIY: Rope Mats

I took a class a couple weeks ago so that I could belay my husband and little people while rock climbing. It was fun to learn the knots and I found a strange attraction to learning the different ways to twist and loop the rope. I am quite sure that I need to try macrame…I…
