Studio Update

I've moved my studio! Well, I'm in the process, and work goes on in the meantime. If you'd like to contact me about a project, or ceramics, my contact info is in the menu adjacent.

Thanks to all those who came to visit my old studio. A few photos to remember it by below. I'll be updating this blog now and then but, well, Facebook is a little more expeditious. You can find me there at http://www.facebook.com/rafter.e.studio.

Architecture Break: Arrow Rock II

In case you were wondering why the previous post described the house as Arrow Rock I . . . here's an early peek at Arrow Rock II, right across the street! I'll post more as it finishes up. A bigger place, for a retired couple, who spend more time down in AR. Giant back acreage looking out onto horse stables. And horses, of course. A little different look to this one--it needed to meld with a couple of existing structures on the property.

This is the street side/south side of the house. The garage to the right was existing. Like the first house, this one has laminated asphalt shingles, Hardie-plank lap siding and brick-veneer foundations (this is nearly a building standard in AR). More photos to come!

Architecture Break: Arrow Rock I

If  you read this blog from time to time, you probably saw a post a year or two ago about this weekend house under construction. Because of the town's status on the historic register, all new construction must be designed in a fitting, traditional style. Although from the outside it has a Shaker-meets-Queen Anne kind of look, the interior is actually quite contemporary. The centerpiece is a large, vaulted living/kitchen area. The kitchen has a BIG wood-topped island that can seat up to eight, in lieu of a dining table. The higher seating lets you see over the living room furniture and out to the beautiful view.

It's all done now, and the owners are spending happy weekends in historic Arrow Rock, Missouri. Maybe they'll have you over for dinner? I'll put a good word in for you. (But only if you like us on Facebook! Hey, pots don't sell themselves.)
