Feast

I've just been up to Feast Restaurant to deliver some T Shirts that Sean printed for them, I'd been thinking about who I'd chose for my Friday friends Feature, and thought, of course James, Meagan and Richard of Feast restaurant.
I've known James from our Joe Allen days in London a long time ago, working and playing hard.
The food is fabulous at Feast , they are very creative and passionate about what they do, and I like that about them.
They've been getting lots of press recently, including a New York Times review and awarded Best New Restaurant in both Houston Chronicle and Houston Press
Check out their daily menus and the video review below


If you're in Houston and haven't been already , you need to go and have a taste. You won't be disappointed.

Photo Show at Antidote

We had the opening of our show at Antidote on Saturday, it went really well, we had lots of people,  sales, and a good party , which as far as I was concerned was the best part.
The washing line helped to have all the pieces hanging off, and it was pretty straight, Sean was helpful with that, thanks Sean !
Susan framed all her pieces and they looked great.

Robert Ellis Music






My Playlist Playlist by carole on MySpace Music - Play Playlist Songs & Download Tracks

Shared via AddThis

My Friday Friend Feature is about Robert Ellis .
 I got to know him through his girlfriend Destiny ( his No 1 promoter) 
He is such a good musician , is wise beyond  his years, and writes and sings beautiful songs.
I was instantly into listening to his music, and played it non stop . You should take a listen, click on the link above or check out his myspace
Sean printed his album covers for his record release a couple of weeks ago, the video is taken of Sean ( Throttle Tees )and Robert printing them in a very hot warehouse,  in extremely humid conditions!

I got to help lay them out and box them up!

Kiln , Tomatoes and Mock ups

picked most of the tomatoes yesterday, so the birds don't get them as they ripen, must get some of that delicious Dairy Maid feta cheese for a salad, the best feta in Houston. They look so nice in a row though, its a shame to eat them! is that weird?
Also got the mock ups done for the show at Antidote, and last night was up late hanging it, the lines are straight, (unlike the ones in the pic ),got these fantastic tensioners, now i want them all over the house!
Also got a new kiln, well, its an old one, that needs some new parts, but hopefully it will all be in working order very soon
yippeee, we're getting the studio sorted, ready for some serious ceramics and t shirt printing
