Herb & Dorothy

I recently watched a documentary call "Herb & Dorothy"
it was really inspiring to watch.

Chronicling the story of unlikely art collectors Herb Vogel and Dorothy Vogel, filmmaker Megumi Sasaki demonstrates that it's not necessary to be wealthy in order to build a significant collection in this fascinating documentary. A postal clerk and a librarian, the Vogels share a passion for art, which they pursued over decades, becoming two of the most important collectors of minimalist and conceptual art with more than 4,000 pieces.

It really open up my mind of collect the work that I thought I can't afford it.
Now most of Jason and mine collection are mostly smaller pottery functionalware 
maybe... it will start to change soon....
anyway, if you want to see this film you can find in on Netflix, and you can watch it online.

playing with new app...

I LOVE my iphone,
because I love taking photo of random stuff all the time
and it's not so great to carry camera with me the whole time (because of the weight)
so iphone fix that problem for me :-)
anyway, I just want to test out the picture quality of the iphone
so I just want to post it and see it!
and these are my last batch before I took a break 
(because of the crazy summer camp, so can't make anything right now)
If they looks okay online, I might just use my iphone for all my etsy photos.
so... what do you think?

half way summer report

well....after all the craft show and summer camp, really tired me up
but after two weeks of watching endless youtube taiwanese TV and getting a iphone
I am all feeling better and ready to make more work :-) 
Last week whole week I was helping Jason setting up his show in college of Marin
It was a lot of hard work, we paint the pedestal, sanding pieces, touch up wall and many more.
but in the end it is totally worth it!!

well...while I was there, I took many photos with my new toy(iphone)
but still have to organize it before I put them on :-)
and sorry for not posting any Jason's work, 
because he don't want people to see his work till the artist reception
(Which is Sep,1 Wednesday from 7-9pm)
hope to see you there!!!

and I meet some more people, and one of them put me on their blog

also many friends came by and check out my stuff. 

and my booth is really close to the back exit, so I keep want to check out the view outside.

It was a really beautiful weekend.
