Any HST artists out there?

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Wow guys great work! I too would suspect more HST'ers to be on a creative bent, there must be more of you out there right? I have to admit i see the simple acts of life such as gardening and cooking to be creative endeavors, we are all artists in some way i like to think...Don't you all "create" something?

I was compelled by photography for some time. Lately i like to construct functional items. Here are some greenware (unfired, unglazed) teapots i made... I always love them in this stage. And a bronze beer tap of the ol' Quin Dog i made for the homebrew i like to concoct.

...Ohh yeah, and lets not forget that pure sense of spirituality and art merging whilst casting dries to a calm lake above 10,000 feet...

Wow your own home tap- system? I don't drink enough to go that route and the art work is wonderful. Where do you do the casting (the dog's head is cast right)? And what great art work everyone. Somewhat unfortunately for me, glass blowing requires a lot of energy/logistical overhead so I can't have a home studio, I have to rent time at one of Seattle's many hotshops. Plus it usually is a two-person process, point being that it requires a fair amount of scheduling and expense, in four hour rental slots. So while it should be a relaxing "hobby" it is actually a rather structured process just to get into the hot shop, and then highly focused and very intense when there.

Yeah unfortunately the dog head is attached to the kegorator in the garage and hasn't poured much of anything for some time. I used to make alot more beer and have folks over to finish it off quick. It was always more fun to get your libation from the Quin head.... Sounds tough working on limited time, i'm far too much of a perfectionist/lag ass to work under those conditions. I'm lucky enough to work in an art department at a college, so i try my best to use the wealth of facilities available to me.

You've given me an idea. My son Mike graduated from art school and was a painter (and a good one). I wonder if he has time to paint any more. I know he hasn't had any recently.

I hope you don't need an account to listen....here are some tracks I uploaded from my recorder. Rough improvised sketches hopefully someday I will shape them into something. I have hours and hours and hours on the recorder

I do draw and paint as well, nothing on the computer though

Whoa - really nice markskor - reminds me of a story of a guy catching Rooster fish with a fly down in Baja.
