pottery, sculpture and illustration by BJ Duke

I like to make things and comfortable environments, noticing desert plants and animals and providing humans peaceful space.

29 palms is a small town USA with such amenities as a Drive In movie and a Foster Freeze. It hosts a visitor center and the east entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. You can walk into the park from the house but its also close to restaurants and shops.

The desert is home to tough pioneer descendants ,escapee's from the city, artists, military families, naturalists and seekers.

In the desert there is nothing
and there is everything.

Enjoy, BJ
