Weekend / Stuff

Deborah Sussman-designed pin from the '84 Olympics. 
I've complained about picking over the holidays in the past and this year is no exception.

I came up on a weed pot score.

Eugene Weston / Architecture

Eugene Weston Jr. Residence (1951) in La Canada by Eugene Weston III


 Another Weston house on StoneGlen in La Canada

A house Weston built for himself in 1955. It's been messed with a bit. 

A house in Eagle Rock Weston designed for Norman Bilderback (1953). Bilderback was the director of design at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art at the time. It is now in the safe hands with Scott, Joanna and Clay of 10 Ten.

I picked up another piece by Karl Lightfoot. This time it's a table to go with an upholstered chair I have.

This is the kind of goofy stuff I get into.

La Gardo Tackett / Architectural Pottery

It was a Tackett / AP sort of a weekend. 

From the Architectural Pottery Pro Artisan catalog: “….a pleasing sculpture, David Cressey provides a form that functions equally well for cigarettes or as a holder of clips, rubber bands and other desk-top requirements.”
It was raining Ferris Shacknove baskets this weekend. 
Designed by Andree Ferris and Reta Shacknove.
