This is Jack http://www.jaxdesignshop.com/
Jack is a Renaissance artist in my mind.
He is building our concrete countertops for our new kitchen. He has a very cool shop in Carlsbad close to the beach.
Jack's tattoos read: "Become the change you wish to see" .....Mahatma Gaundi quote.....
Jack rides his bike from his home in SD to the train station, rides up north and then bike rides to his shop. His trucks run on Bio fuels....need I say more?
The second photo shows the templates he made for our counters.He's going in include some small found stones and things in some of the sections.
My friend Al Rodriguez just came back from a fishing trip in Baja...a thousand miles south. He picked up a small very worn down shell remnant on one of the beautiful beaches and gave it to me last Friday at his studio in San Diego. http://yagottahaveart.com/bio.htm . Al's shell will be a part of the countertop....thank you Al! There are also some milagro birds and a couple of clay buttons.....more photos after the holiday...
