Two more chicken footstools off to good homes and dad's baby wheats are coming along. Today was a good day!

Here is a photo shoot of our freshest batch of chicken footstools. We spend so many hours fashioning each one that we grow to love them through the process, so shipping time is oddly significant! We hope they bring their new owners much joy. As long as the UPS man remembers to come by the farm they fly away today...

Last weekend we enjoyed our outing with the Chicken Footstools at the St. Louis Art Fair. We were surrounded by super-talented artists, old friends, new friends, cute chicken-riding kiddos and people who light up at the opportunity to share their chicken stories. Once again we were struck by the deep reaction from people of every shape, size, color, outfit, piercing or not. Francois Lalanne summed it up well when he said, "Everyone can recognize animals throughout the world. You don't have to explain what they are or mean."
The idea is simple, but the delight is significant. We hope our work brings awareness of the extraordinary in the ordinary.
Thank you SLAF and thanks to everyone who came out to the show! It was our pleasure to meet you.

A special set of chicken footstools have nested at the Strecker Nelson Gallery on Poyntz in downtown Manhattan, Kansas. Please go say hello if you are in the area. Thank you to Jay and Barbara Nelson for being such lovely hosts! Also, thank you to sister-in-law Lindsey for her documentation skills and support.
