Mud Hen East

We have sold our mud house here in Cerrillos N.M. and are heading back to New York's Hudson Valley. It is a bitter sweet choice that has brought up all sorts of storms of the heart. But alas for me, aging parents beckons me home.
There will be lots to do to feel settled in our home in Tivoli. Lots of weed pulling, grass cutting and for me the ritual cleaning that washes away unfamiliar smells and allows our family smells to settle.
It is my hope when we get settled to begin to grow Mud Hen East. One of the first projects I want to do is earth plaster over sheetrock in our downstairs studio. It is there I imagine a sort of earth building laboratory for brewing clay paints and earth plasters. A place for experimentation and teaching. Stay Tuned
