The Birth of Phanes
The Birth of the Japanese House
On November 19, 2009 I rescued – from destruction-bent developers – a Japanese house that was hand-built in the 1960s by noted potter Teruo Hara. Last August I wrote a bit about the place in my 8-8 newsletter.
Now The Washington Post has just done a feature article about the Japanese House, with ten photos you can click on to view different shots of the interior. Reporter: Christine Macdonald, photographer: John Mcdonnell, “green”architect: John Spears president of Sustainable Design Group; woodworkers: Old Town Woodworking in Virginia, Acorn Designs in Pennsylvania, Sequoia in Santa Fe New Mexico.
I plan to create a writers-artists retreat here in coming years. Right now I am writing here, like crazy, on my book about painters!
