Dear, dear -- our furthest flung correspondent (perhaps excepting Connie if she is at home in Germany) ! Enjoy the frozen east. . .and we'll sympathize with your lack of the usual amenities.

How many know that the Newfies call it NewfoundLAND ?

some move by and most sit still. only 9% above water...
and 65-70 by noon, so pleasant and t-shirts, though fleece handy
at any moment, wind and shifting weather. stunning really.

studying ashley book of knots, and always obsesseded with the
repeat pattern. man-made especially. a good source of repeat
pattern inspiration. still think a hauer rep may chime in. not a rep
really, just a obsessive sort, that may have clues to his craftman
skills. really need to see the molds used for those patterns...arrgg!

though i am sitting at my iceberg perch, small wooden table and chair,
handmade some time ago, i do feel connected to mid-century. not MCM.
sears catalog just delivered. no overscale plastic packaging. (no one
steals here). or locks a door. local paper the size of a peanut, so we start
the fire with, ta da, the sears catalog! (or fold a christmas tree)
and...not a peep about the new i-phone...and another fun fact,
about newfoundland, (prounounced, newfinLAND), we have our own
1/2 hour time zone, 1 and 1/2 beyond nyc. wierd. sunset at 9.45pm.
but no whole bean coffee, or DSL, or CARS!!. no traffic!!! heaven.
(i brought 30lbs of good coffee beans)...
still thinking about Hauer and his genius...

Thanks for the dispatch from the strange and fascinating North/East. How long before you return to "normalcy" ?

My take on the ever-seductive repeat pattern has been progression/development across the surface.

After all this talk about hauer and icebergs, I've been thinking about Malcolm Leland's structural elements for the American Cement Company Building in LA.

The smaller elements are being sold as book ends by Architectural Pottery. They are easier to see at the Velocity link: http://www.velocityartanddesign.com/vap_xoo.html

Happy Friday night ! :cheers: I'm definitely unwinding. . .

Josquin, I was completely unaware of Malcolm Leland. Wonderful. There has been too little of this work shown and known, though there is perhaps a fair sampling from the period of forty and fifty years ago. Who was it who designed a new American embassy in Dublin (?) then -- it was a three-story drum girdled is such forms. There must be more of this stuff to look at. . .

(And we come around to Pomona. . .see how it all ties in ?) :D

I recall this; the elements are tile red, linking this modern structure beautifully to the tile-roofed buildings around it ?

Funny. Just looked at Eldane's house for sale in CT and there it is - .

I'd seen the photos before but hadn't really noticed that wall. "You only see what you know". How true ...

Ah -- and there we have documentation of the assembly matter. Looks like there was a good deal of spackling and painting. . .!

Thanks, Connie. SDR

FYI: The last three episodes of HBO's series Entourage have featured multiple Hauer screens used as fencing/privacy screen in Vince's new modern Los Angeles pad. It is located way above the Pacific Design Center, so I would assume it is in the hills above West Hollywood or Beverly Hills.

The rest of the house is worth seeing too for it's fresh take of the MCM vocabulary.
