Harrison McIntosh @ AMOCA

I went to see the Harrison McIntosh exibition, " A Timeless Legacy" at the American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA). I encourage everyone to go and check out this exhibition if you get a chance. Don't forget to pick up a copy of Harrison McIntosh retrospective book, A Timeless Legacy. There will be a personal appearance and book signing on October 10, 6-7pm @ AMOCA. Thank you to Catherine McIntosh & AMOCA for putting this wonderful exhibition together, as well as Harrison McIntosh for introducing such wonderful pottery into the world.

Richard Neutra House SOLD in San Bernardino, Ca

Ok...I was quite shocked when I saw this. The Gillen house designed by Richard Neutra located on the foothills of the San Bernardino National Forest sits on a 2 acre lot and was built in 1955. The asking price of this gem was $299,000. On the market for 2 months and is now pending. This would have been a fun project to take on. One problem though, the property is astride the San Andreas Earthquake Fault, but I would chance the "BIG" one to hit, to be able to live in a Neutra for $299,000!!

Criley & McDowell Ontario, Ca

I'm 99.9% sure this is a Criley & McDowell designed home because of this drawing here done by Fred McDowell. The house is located in Ontario, Ca. I always admire it when passing by. Classic post and beam construction, the carport design really stands out to me. I love the way architects from this period incorporated the carports with the design of the house.
