Timothy Reed - A great stone magician

Yesterday we visited the amazing artist Timothy Reed who lives in Myrtle Creek in Oregon. His stone intarsia work is beyond impressive. I have never seen such beautiful and complicated stone art before and the artist himself is driven by pure love for the power of art. With the most amazing precision and taste of complex patterns, formations and organic honesty, he transforms the hardest materials into the most beautiful pieces of art. This man is a pure magician with stones. Picture: Timothy and his brother Mitch that makes beautiful wiring and turns Tims intarsia work into beautiful necklaces and jewelleries. Here is some pictures of his work:

Three of his books have also been optioned to movie production companies. In the morning he gave me a beautiful poem!

Some wonderful days in Spokane

The last couple of days we have been visiting friends in Spokane, glimpsing into some traditions like learning about different medicine plants, visiting a traditional brain tanning hide class, learning how to braid hair and we have of course shared music together. So good to see you all again! Thank you for sharing and for keeping old wisdom alive.
