A Calculated Risk Turns 25!
November, 2017, marks the 25th anniversary of the hardback publication of A Calculated Risk! In celebration, starting this month, I’ll be giving away 25 autographed copies of the original first-edition paperback, with a beautiful cover that opens to a vault of gold bricks. We’ll be using my traditional method of tossing darts to select the 25 winners!

The Japanese House turns 52!
As part of the restoration of the Japanese House, a team of professional potters is dismantling Teruo Hara’s historic, hand-built kilns, which will be reassembled at a pre-designed location in Maryland for continued use. We are documenting the complete deconstruction/reconstruction process, and will have celebrations at various landmarks along the way.
Teruo Hara was a famous potter serving at the Corcoran School (now part of George Washington University) in Washington, DC. In the 1960s-1980s, the Japanese House had served as his pottery and kilns. I have a sizable collection of Mr Hara’s pottery, donated by many, during the (still-ongoing) restoration of the house. For more info about the influence of Japanese culture upon Western art and architecture, please see my latest Japanese ruminations.
