Art Pottery, Politics and Food
Thursday, July 24, 2003
Possibly in a coordinated Midwestern response to tonight's highly entertaining and uplifting Queer Eye for the Straight Guy I was subjected to several irate reader outbursts along the lines of, "Where's the promised seafood recipe?" and "I've seen only one ceramic pot in the last few months..." Thank God you people can't pick through my cupboards and underwear drawer with bar-b-cue tongs!

Crab Salad

8-10 oz fresh picked White Crabmeat
1 Yellow Pepper, seeded, chopped
3-4 Green Onion, chopped
1/2 Cup Parsley, fresh, chopped
1 Tbsp Sugar
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/4 cup Rice Vinegar

Assemble ingredients. Chill several hours. Add a dash of Rice Vinegar before serving. Serve with shredded Iceberg Lettuce and fresh sliced Tomatoes. Bliss.

New Tile

Anxiously awaiting the arrival of this 6" square Herman Mueller Kensington design bearing the American Encaustic mark. Likely designed in the early 1880's, Mueller, in the manner and spirit of the itinerant artists of the time, could have taken a mold or two along on the trip from Newport, Kentucky to Zanesville, Ohio around 1888. Mueller's classical designs from the Kensington Tile Works and the American Encaustic Tiling Company are very hard to find. This looks to be a particularly good mold but only close inspection will tell the tale.
