For my main man who has everything

Turns out I love gifting, but it's hard to gift people who don't need anything. My dad was an architect and real estate developer, and Frank Lloyd Wright one of his favorites. 

On a trip to the Gugg a month or so ago, I spotted and sent him a set of these bowls. He loves them. 


PS: I love sending postcards too! 
if you'd like one from NYC, send me your address!

Burnt Orange Mustard, aka, Ingrid, er, MTLW -- tell your dad to watch (knowing, per your great spinning of yarns, your pop to be a man of unmatched taste, he probably already has) read through the wonderful story and timeline of FL Wright's time working with Guggs (as you say) and Hill Rebay (curator?). awesome. made an impression on me to be sure.
