Philip John Evett and Brella

Visiting the Hill Country studio and gallery of my old friend and former sculpture professor, Phil Evett, is a special event for sure. This visit was even more special – we were going to meet Brella, a small, elegant wooden goddess whom we were taking back to San Antonio to become a treasured part of a private art collection. Author and professor Frank Kersnowski went with me, and we had a wonderful tour of Phil’s studio and then a fine lunch at the Redbird Cafe in nearby Blanco.The cafe is owned by the Briegers, potters and artisans, and their gallery is right next door.
Phil’s work continues to be astonishing in its scope and complexity – at 89, he is a legend and a delight. I’m sure all of his former students would agree as would Brella herself if she could talk.
