Councilmember Tom LaBonge Honors Seymour Rosen
Councilmember Tom LaBonge invited Seymour Rosen into his Valley Field Office to give him a commendatory plaque this past week. Rosen has been a Reserve Police Officer for the past 22 years, and he serves as the 1st Vice President of the Los Angeles Police Parker Foundation. He was instrumental in enacting a payroll deduction program approximately 15 years ago for new LAPD recruits, which helps to fund police equipment.

Councilmember Tom LaBonge stands with Field Deputy Alice Roth, Ron Olsen, and Harry Flynn. Together, they planted twelve trees and beautified the Vineland median between Sarah and Camarillo. The event was done in coordination with the Hollywood Beautification Team and the Greater Toluca Lake Neighborhood Council.

Robert Moore: Light and Dark
The work of ceramic artists Peter Voulkos, Hans Coper, Roseline Delisle, and George E. Ohr challenged the idea of the vessel and its traditional characteristics of utility through geometric abstraction, handmade mechanical precision, and virtuosity over material. Their influence, within my practice as an artist potter, inspired interest in the utilitarian pot used solely for display. These “pots on display” can be taken off the mantle and used, but something else provided is of greater importance. This led me to a closer consideration of visual cues that signify “containership.”
Containership is a generic term for defining the purpose of a vessel. The context with which I am using this word will not be found in any dictionary, but appropriately denotes the capacity a vessel has for containment.
I was taught that the true form of a vessel lies within the interior shape, and trimming should be a realization of that shape mirrored on the exterior. The inside of a vessel relating to the outside is an expectation of “containership.”
Robert earned his Masters Degree of Fine Arts from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, Alfred, New York.
