Usually when people hear "gargoyle" they think of Paris and the Notre Dame cathedral. But Tucson has its own gargoyle tradition... Tucson clay artist Miles Thompson has made his reputation by creating amazing hand-crafted gargoyles. Does your garden wall need a touch of the mystical? Or does your entry need a special creature to greet your guests? Shown here are three examples of his recent work - all pieces are around $100. If you would like to get in touch with him, write to me at "firstname.lastname@example.org" and I'll put you in touch with him.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
