I realized I've never shared on social media, as far as I can remember, my own pottery. I never really took a class, but I sat in on a few sessions and spent maybe 10 hours at the wheel. These are some of the ones I made at @touchstonecenterforcrafts in the summer of 2003. I was told I should have applied myself to it; that I would have been good. I was recently told that again. Meh. What I do know is that I have regularily used that mug for 15 years and it hasn't broken. If it does, a part of me will die. One of the things that I always liked about it was the fact that there is a mixture of strength with a strong side of gentleness that is required in the hands of a potter. Every muscle in your fingers, arms and sometimes more are being used, especially when you start centering and pulling a piece, but all with gentleness. Delicacy. It's a good thing. #pottery #woodfiredpottery #Appalachia

This Duck Followed us for about three blocks back to the parking lot after we had been observing some odd hen- like birds which were free roaming in town of Ohiopyle. The hen things seemed perturbed by the ducks presence. We were not sure what he wanted, it wasn't food, and we felt slightly disappointed in our inability to help out this friendly duck. Later I looked up the breeds. The henish creatures were domestic guinea fowl --notorious for wandering off -- and the duck is also domestic, a Khaki Campbell. My theory is that the guinea fowl ran off..yet again.. the duck went in pursuit and was getting at "Hey stupid, the guineas are out again, why are you just staring at them? Hey Hey, you're walking away..over there. Where are you going..back that away...They're over there!!, We've got to round them up....ehhh nevermind ". #friendlyanimals #animalfriends #khakicampbell #ducks #chanceencounters #languagebarrier #ohiopyle #livestock #farmlife #birds #birdphotography #missedopportunity #duckbreeds #greatalleghenypassage #travelphotography #alleghenymountains #ridgeandvalley #appalachia

Watched the Giant Ichneumon wasp plant her very long ovipositor into this "dead" stump. These female wasps sense the vibration of larvae from other ( horntail) wasps in the wood. The female will deposit her eggs on these other larvae. When the eggs hatch as a larvae stage, they then eat the host larvae. This is their only meal. Ever. After winter they will emerge ( somehow!) as adults and will live around 27 days. How could anyone find biology boring?! In this photo one can see the ovipositor on the far side of her midlegs. One of the wasps couldn't get her 3-stranded ovipositor out. So I helped her. Yep. Interfered with nature. #appalachia #appalachiaohioalliance #insectsofinstagram #outdoorohio

We had the pleasure of spending a little time in the cut. WNC in autumn. Drank a cold beer or two with friends while kiddos slipped and slid. At one point there were 10 or so dogs tearing through the field, chasing each other and nipping at each other’s necks. Jake and I took off on our own creek adventure. We trekked around thick rhododendron along the rocky creek to a slip of waterfalls and a large mossy rock perfect for sun bathing. We stripped down for a chilly AF dip into a small watering holeβ€”more of a watering bathtubβ€”situated between an upper and lower set of falls. We had a helluva time going into our knees, then our hips, belly buttons, nipples (the worst!), and shoulders...the buck stopped at my shoulders where I paused and soaked in the freezing water against my skin. It got so cold our skin started to sting, even burn. We laughed that we were essentially in a hot tub! We laughed until it was clear, we had to get the F out. The hot tub was just in our minds. The creek had thoroughly cleansed us, and we were invigorated. Thank you Sunday.

Five months later, I can finally say the music video I've been working on all summer is done. It will be a while before I can share it in its entirety, but I am so ecstatic/relieved that it is finished. A ton of awesome people helped me with this thing at various times during production and I plan on holding a private screening for the cast and crew in Huntington soon (complete with many, many top quality snacks). There are too many to tag here, so if you see this post and you helped me with this video, be on the lookout for an invite. I can honestly say this was one of the most eye-opening artistic endeavors of my life. The knowledge I have gained in all areas of video production is unquantifiable. It was fun, it was frustrating, it was like nothing I've ever done. And hopefully the final product is something that everyone involved can be proud of. More soon. - MW/BC #musicvideo #techno #filmmaking #imagething #dystopiaisforlovers #appalachia #horrorfilmmaker #undergroundtechno #experimentalmusic
