Home & Garden Highlights: 09.30.06

Oct 2, 2006

We're happy to report that the Chronicle embraced the Internet this weekend with an audio feature on local blacksmith Eric Clausen.

Otherwise, it's all about sustainable agriculture and interior design happenings (cribbed from the Washington Post).

  • Melding Iron Age skill, modern artistry: Nancy Davis Kho profiles Eric Clausen, a third-generation blacksmith whose gates and other iron sculptures grace the entrance to the Shakespeare Garden in Golden Gate Park and many other local spots.

    This guy's dragons are wonderful (photos are hidden in the audio feature).

  • Pollan preaches sustainability to garden lovers: The Berkeley journalism professor and sustainable agriculture guru explains why "locally grown" is more important than "organic."

  • Victoria Hagan designs at Target: Jura Koncius reports (for the Washington Post) that the best items in the New York decorator's foray into democratic chic are the "lamps, pillows, mirrors and felt-backed serving trays." (Covered last week by AT:Chicago.)

  • At $133 a gallon, the paint might run dry: The Washington Post reports on Pantone's new paints, which cost $133 a gallon but apparently saturate your walls with deep color that lasts 12-15 years. (Covered two weeks ago by AT:NY.)
