Bits of clay and found objects and mirrors everywhere, and day glow paint! I don't know the artists name who did this, I will have to look it up later. But I guess there are several works around the city by the same artist.
The Clay Studio was huge! The gallery recently doubled in size and they had an excellent exhibit/silent auction going on, with really incredible ceramic works by leading artists.
We got to tour the whole place, meet up with Jeff, the artistic director, who is originally from Michigan, and who I knew a little from our local clay scene.Here is Jeremy and me in his studio, a well organized little space with a window overlooking the oldest street in the country, he told me, and the Ben Franklin bridge, I think. Here he is showing me some new mold experiments he is working on for a new series of work.
I don't know if this link will work, but here is the song I am thinking of today. "Bow Down" by the Housemartins. When I go to a city, I usually sing the first verse:
Mother, father, I think that I would rather
Stay at home with you for another year
That buildings so tall and it makes me feel so small
That I might get lost and simply disappear
