Yesterday, in the factory, under my tauerville sign that I got from a friend, years ago, to celebrate the opening of the two rooms where I spend most of my time these days, yesterday, I made today’s blog picture. Very,  very wet. An experiment really. Kind of out of control. You see how the colors […]

Today’s picture shows you some pentachords flacons,  on their way to getting the finishing touch: The white wooden pentachords top cover.

Today’s picture to the left shows you black and white take of stones on a beach at the state park “El Capitan” in Southern California. Made by nature. Smoothed by the sea and a lively contrast to the beach’s sand. Nature often works on a large timescale. We human beings tend to think in days, […]

Today’s picture shows you a quick photo that I took yesterday before giving the bunch of Levkojen aka Matthiola away. I bought them at a flower shop nearby where I stop on a regular basis. The woman owning the shop buys a lot of flowers that are fragrant and she cares for special flowers you […]
