  Yasha Heifetz, Ravenware and Luther Conover Knoll letter tray, Carl Aubock bottle opening in the original packaging and a cool bull. I stopped off at a different vista point on the way back home. I don't know who did this one, yet. Steve Salisian Hal Rieger I also picked up some vintage photographs with models posing on VKG and T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings

Chowchilla Modern / Richard S Clark

Ed and Shary Gray house by Richard S Clark (1962) in Chowchilla, CA The house was designed in 1961 and completed in 1967. The Grays built much of the house themselves. It's currently for sale  at $275,000. The listing has been making the rounds on the internets and I was headed up to the Bay Area and always enjoy taking Highway 99. I decided to make a stop in Chowchilla. It's a rural city in Central California with a population of 18,443 (2020).  Photo: Fresno Bee (1975) Clark, who was from Bakersfield, apprenticed under Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin from roughly 1957 to 1959.  Clark then worked for fellow Wright apprentice, Aaron G. Green, in the 1960s.  Unfortunately Clark died in a motorcycle accident in 1967, shortly after the house was completed. He was only 31 when he passed and this is the only known house he designed on his own. Source: Fresno Bee (1975) The hemicycle house has a 72-degree circular footprint with the middle centered on the North Star.  All the rooms
