ted_vasin_paintings_1

The first thing you notice about Ted Vasin is that he looks like a painter version of a homeless version of a long-haired version of Hunter S. Thompson. And his paintings are equally as unqiue. Extremely well-rendered images are made in the contrasting styles of pencil sketch and vibrant abstract forms and organic shapes. Put the two together and you have a compelling look that borders on psychedelic. His works change greatly over the years, so it’s worth going back and taking a peek at how things evolved, as his twelve year career has seen several startling transformations.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
