Finding Your ‘Home,’ With a Sundial

Last year I journeyed to West Cornwall, Conn., to visit the celebrated ceramic artist Jane Herold at her home and studio. She was a delight and the tour of her studio was wonderful in and of itself — but an added bonus was the chance to meet her husband, the sculptor Robert Adzema.

Two Pottery Tours in Tristate Region

Tours of pottery and ceramic studios are coming up in the Tristate region at the end of September and beginning of October.

The first of the two, the Berkshire Pottery Tour, will be the weekend of Sept. 25-26 in Southern Berkshire County.

Band of Brothers, Generation Kill: Thank You for Your Service

If I asked you to name some great war movies, you could likely rattle off a half dozen without much thinking. But TV does not dramatize war very often or very well. We do have Ken Burns’ fine documentary “The Vietnam War,” but I can think of only two miniseries worth mentioning here; each depicts a very different war.

An Artist Whose Studio Was in The North Tower Muses on 9/11

Donald Bracken now lives in Cornwall, Conn., but in the late 1990s he was living in New York City and working as an artist in a building that most of us think of as being largely dedicated to finance: The North Tower of the World Trade Center.

Tom Zetterstrom of North Canaan, Conn., is more than just a photographer of trees and more than just a specialist in preserving and maintaining tree health. He is both. Learn more this month at his show and workshops at the Berkshire Botanical Gardens. Photo by Tom Zetterstrom

Photographs That Are Lovely, Dark and Deep

It’s easy to take Tom Zetterstrom of North Canaan, Conn., for granted. He’s always there, working hard to protect the trees of our landscape (especially the elms). He doesn’t really ask for our help, he just …gets to it.
