The Pottery Shack

Now converted into restaurants etc, the original Pottery Shack in Laguna as witnessed in the 1950's and 60's. It was finally converted in 2004. I believe in it's original incarnation, wares were made on site. I can still remember playing little league baseball, and battling it out with the shack. Only in Laguna would the matchup be Bill Thomas Camera vs. the Pottery Shack, followed by VFW (Veterans of Foreign War) vs. Hobie. I miss seeing all that pottery from PCH. Vessels are from 1960's over at 1st Dibs. The statue is of the Greeter Eiler Larsen, short story HERE.

Now that RBG is installed, I am on the build up for Play Mountain in June. I am thinking about some old projects of stacked separates, each object functioning on it's own, or together, both as single objects or arrangements. Depends on your mood. This one is from 2004.
