Cincinnati Art Museum

Our small Still[ed] Life has made it to the Dutch Masters wing at the Cincinnati Art Museum! Insane. Could not ask for a better place, anywhere.
(please excuse the cell phone photography we took while the guard wasn't looking)

The Rookwood Fireplace and ICFF

Our finished Rookwood fireplace for ICFF 2013. Interesting fact.... Rookwood's last participation in an international exhibition was the 1893 Columbian Exposition, aka the Chicago World's Fair, where they won several awards. 
(collaboration between Guy Michael Davis, Terence Hammonds, and Katie Parker)
(above) Mike always does these amazing drawings before we start a project - I think it is time we start posting them.
