Les Orenstein Ceramics
Also, from Laguna a happy holiday to Les Orenstein. I worked as an apprentice to Les at Lill Street Studios in Chicago in 1995. Loading kilns, trimming vessels, waxing and glazing, were all in a days work with Les watching Bulls games on a black and white television. The images here are from a few pieces at my Mothers place, that I must have toted back from the 1995 production. It was quite the education in work ethic, and commitment for an 18-19 year old kid.
