Jeff (remember Jeff's Shutters?) needed a birthday present for the wife and invited me to tag along to Barry Gregg Clayworks. Lucky me.
Barry and Parker, his 3-legged dog, greeted us. I can't believe I didn't get a picture of Parker, the inspiration for Barry's happy bark ark period. Here's an ark.
Moma and baby dogs.
Salty dogs and peppery dogs.
Barry shows and sells all over the southeast. His work will catch your eye in a gallery or show and make you smile. This is from Mudfire more than a year ago, my first encounter with Barry's work.
Plenty of birds in the bark arks.
Barry's yard is a menagerie of totems.
Barry also models humans and rabbits when he's of a mind to.
Here is the whole "3 Dog Night"

Thanks to Jeff for the invitation. Thanks to Barry Gregg for the work. Thanks to Ms. Parker the 3-legged dog for the inspiration.
