Nolan and Winkler were kind enough to host all of us WBHD types to their compound in Hillsboro for lunch. Great, and beautifully creative tucker/chow, lots of laughs, and of course the awed envy of the complex and art.
Entrance to the gallery/home with the giant dinner gong out front.
Yes, and flocks of sheep and cattle come to mind as well.
Winkler explains one of his sculpts, through the gap in his winsome smile where he’d just knocked out a tooth. The grounds are a treasure trove of exotic metal and found objects, Trevor would enjoy for sure.
We got a tour of Winkler’s workshop/bike storage shed as well. I hadn’t seen that on my last visit, so here are some pix.
That’s Catherine & Don Brenner, Winkler, and Joel Brown.
Everyone was envious of all the storage, work, and play spaces….highlighted by a visit to Nolan’s studio.
We enjoyed the company of plenty of birds, but no deer today. Everyone wanted Nolan’s stackable serving plates/bowls.
Especially the flies…as you know from Oz, open range, heat and rain brings all the little flying friends to the table. I am sure you will recognize the “wave” in the photo below!
All in all a wonderful afternoon!
