Sorry for the lag between posts, but it has been a busy busy time. Between getting the Box & Flea lookbook ready for mailings and getting my fall studio students ready for their Midterm review, there hasn't been a moment to rest.
The midterm was yesterday, and I'm happy to say I couldn't be more pleased with the results of the students hard work. Also, a big thanks goes out to guest critics Soo-in Yang and Alessandro Ayuso for joining us for the day.
Truth be told, after a long last week of desk crits, I decided the best thing for me to do was to give the students their work space while I slipped off to the country for a couple of days of rehabilitation.
An and I headed off to NW Connecticut for a weekend of fresh farm veggies, paddling on the lake, and bourbon by the fire. The leaves were changing and the night temps were in the 30's, making both the fire and the bourbon even more cozy.
I thought it would be hard to leave all that behind and head back to the city on Monday morning, but the minute I stepped into the school and saw the work pinned on the wall, all was right.
