Valentine Schlegel Ceramics

Valentine Shlegel was born in Sète into a family of furniture upholsterers.She turned towards art in 1942 when she entered the Ecole des Beaux-arts in Montpellier.Schlegel was exceptionally gifted, and completed her studies in two instead of five years. Afterwards, she moved to Paris to devote herself to ceramics.
Hand shaped or turned, her pots were coated in dark-coloured slip, each one conceived in accordance with the flowers it was intended to hold. In 1957, the gallery La Demeure exhibited her new works. The sale of two pieces to museums meant that her work was presented internationally.

And you burn down another palo santo stick, hoping that it will clarify your troubles. (it doesn't clarify).
And you meditate and you read every single book by Ram Dass. And you just aren't able to connect. And you just aren't able to be here. Now.
So you better chill and dream of  Ghost Ranch, and wear some loose clothes. It won't kill you. It's a lonely journey, but it will be ok.

nueva costa

Una cerveza, por favor. When you just want to hop into a plane/train (surfboard?) and disappear for a few moments.Getting away from the constant pollution, from the constant interruptions. Away from constant routines and familiar voices and city noises. When you just urge to ride on a car listening to unfamiliar dialects singing on daytime radio, while you're looking, from your backseat window, to unfamiliar buildings, squares and monuments. Crossing your away among unfamiliar faces. And then, by mere luck, or the way the sun shines upon a puddle of water refracting its light back at you, you feel at home like you never felt before.

Nueva Costa emerges like one of the most indefinable bands from BYM Records, close to the late German kraut psychedelia of the 70’s (Harmonia), the nebulous but sharp electronic music from the 80’s showed by Gary Numan and the Chilean psych-folk roots founded on Los Jaivas and Inti Illimani. This album talks about the local chilean culture but looked through the glass of the last 40 years in the popular world music.
