This stunning project by Montreal designer Endrée Villeneuve of Vision enVert uses three King Isosceles Sculptural Firebowls™ to great effect. The firebowls flank a pool on stone pillars, with gorgeous waterfalls feeding into the pool to create a soothing soundscape. Built on the shores of...

Usually my firebowls appear on TV without me. I ship them to the set and only see the show much later. For the Surf's Up with the Greens episode of My Yard Goes Disney JayTV sent Rich Brauer out to the studio to film me...

The Great Bowl O' Fire Sculptural Firebowl™ is prominently featured in the Artful Home's email newsletter this week. The Great Bowl O' Fire was included in the Artful Home Spring Catalog and will be in the upcoming summer catalog as well. Artful Home is a juried...

There's a great article in this week's Antrim County News about me… Jeff Kessler did a great job of capturing the breadth of what I'm up to lately, and I really enjoyed the couple hours that we spent sitting on the porch chatting. He was...

I knew something was up when I had 6 convos from Etsy Users in 5 minutes! That doesn't happen every day. Since I had recently done an interview with Artish about men on Etsy, I kinda figured the sudden increase in conversations was due to the...

It doesn't get much cooler than having your work featured in Craft! I'd have posted this sooner except i lost my copy of the magazine temporarily and hadn't scanned it yet. My girlfriend Marcie is usually pretty blasé about seeing my name in print (which is...

Daily Confection just posted a really fun phone interview I did with Gary Connolly. We discussed a broad set of topics including art, business, marketing, the ways that blogging and the web in general have impacted my work as an artist and 30 foot...

Felix Salmon just posted an email interview about my thoughts on investing in art. It all started with a comment I left on Felix's post contesting Todd Gibson's assertion that art is a poor long term investment. Yeah, that's an awkward sentence, isn't it? So go...

Doree Shafrir's kick-ass article on the American Guernica Project went out on the Columbia News Service wire recently. It was picked up by a small handful of papers nationally. These are the ones I've found so far… The Orlando Sentinel The Naples Daily News The Arizona Republic It's sort...

I got a really nice (unsolicited) review the other day on Rick Visser's Artrift blog… Although I was initially struck by John T. Unger's 'American Guernica idea', I soon found myself altogether captivated by the quality, depth and general aspect of his work.  There is an...

Reviews and links are heating up for the Great Bowl O' Fire™! I think the best thing about living with dial-up instead of high speed internet has gotta be the way it makes your "fifteen minutes of fame" stretch out the whole evening. heh. This almost...

One of the most frequently overheard statements at art fairs and galleries is "I could do that" or, frequently, "my kid could do that." Well, hey, most of the time it's true. You or your kid could probably do that. All you need to do is...

  Found this in my email this morning. Fun! I would guess that it's far too early to get excited about it, but it would certainly be cool if it happens. I'm glad it came in today, before sending the laptop away to be replaced. I am...

I've been reading Metaefficient for a long time, so I'm thrilled to see that they've reviewed my Dot! chairs on their site! John T. Unger makes these vibrantly colored "Dot! Quadriped" chairs using over 50% recycled material. The chairs can be used indoors or out, and are...
