Frank Lloyd Wright snowman ?

Post by SDR »

Looks like this would be a good week for America's budding or experienced sculptors to make something of all this snow!

Special mention for the best porkpie hat (from corrugated cardboard ?), and for best Frank-and-Olgivanna pair . . .

Let's get to it !

SDR, start us off by building a snowman in your own front yard. But no carrot nose, please.

Heh. As you should know, there's almost never a snowfall in San Francisco---and as an apartment dweller I have no front yard. So I'll settle for being an armchair critic, for those in Texas, Oklahoma, New Jersey or Maine who might find themselves inspired and with time on their hands ?

If not, next summer will find us in sand-castle season---a prospect potentially closer to the heart of the architect . . .

Great !

I'm reading and enjoying Lonnie Lovness's labor of love, the story of her parents' Wright houses which also includes fascinating family and Taliesin history. Don and Virginia became close to Mrs Wright and the apprentices before and after Mr Wright's death, and there are photos of the galas and festivals that Mrs Wright continued to concoct through the 'sixties and beyond. Perhaps that is what inspired me to suggest the snow man (and woman) today---along with news of widespread snowfall over a path stretching from the Gulf to the Canadian border . . .
