And so not built at all.
And therefore built forever”
Oscar Wilde
“Dog Mirror” by Mo 1993
engraved mirror, carved flashed glass, inlaid rosewood frame with patinated copper, titanium and bone
MaxanddogmirrorRod with Barry’s dog Max 23 years ago,
the mirror is gone, burned down along with Barry’s recording studio a year later, they were built out of music…

  1. Photographs are one of the things that can bring it all back . . . along with smells and music, always music, of course.

      so much of the work from last century wasn’t photographed, hard to believe in this 21st C world where every moment is documented. Old Man Crow has his guitar,an amp and whatever song is happening next, he could live in a hotel room quite happily!

    Oh, Mo, I’m so glad you have this joyous photo of it…it was just fabulous. Definitely worth putting to music.

  3. Dog Mirror is wonderful………so is Barry: https://youtu.be/BmfO-K4cyvk

  4. Gorgeous work, Mo! So sad that it was lost in a fire, but good that you still have the photo and the memory….

      thanks for the good words Sharmon, I love that quote, it’s up there with Ray Bradbury’s “Oh sure, it’s money that rules the world. It’s music that holds down the friction.”
