Mt Salvation

Road tripping with my father-finally made it to the Mountain(= :-0) standing/walking/talking in awe, put it on the top of your CA list.

"Sometimes I wish I started the Mountain when I was 11 instead of 52!"
"well come on back and bring some friends cause the Mountain ain moving anywhere"

LA Times article on Leonard Knight's Salvation Mountain-here.
cheers Ryan.



The Art Of The Hurrays/Skeksis Head @ Harris Lieberman.
Hurray=Richard Aldrich+Josh Brand+Pete Mandradjieff+Zak Prekop.



Looking down at the Getty Villa, Malibu.


Numbers threaded & tapped with 1/2" brass tube spacers-almost ready for the house...thinking the best patina may be no patina, the bronze oxidizing/darkening naturally over time.


10 TH

From LBC-go figure.


Necklace, Santo Domingo Pueblo, New Mexico, early 60's-the turquoise/tortoise shell combination = beautiful-(*the later outlawed for use in the early 70's). Found at the LBC flea-Happy Birthday Sticks! X/O



A few pieces from a mixed bag of vintage Heath Ceramics tableware found at the LBC flea this weekend. The first plate is nuts-I've never seen any Heath pieces with patterning beyond sprayed glazes-into forming a parallel/rogue dinner set of vintage Heath, a gang of all the old discontinued glaze colors.
In house relatives here.


Broken Together

Turn of the century folky porcelain/marble assemblage vase...too many bills but beautiful @ LBC flea this morning. "It's really the handles that make this one special"
