Meet Colorado Ceramicist and Sculptor Kazu Oba

The Japanese-born artist produces works of art with intention at his Lafayette studio. To spend a few hours with potter and sculptor Kazu Oba is to more deeply contemplate the purpose-filled existence of everyday objects. As I write, a small, cone-shaped porcelain sake cup of Oba’s making, glazed in streaky shades of sandy ochre, mustard, and chestnut, sits on my desk. It’s beautiful, sure, but now, after meeting Oba, I feel a fresh obligation to the thing: not merely to admire it but to use it. It occurs to me that he has turned me into a mystic, perceiving a latent energy in this object, an active expectation of use.

Colorado Horror Writer Stephen Graham Jones Is Back With a Killer Follow-Up

His latest work, My Heart Is A Chainsaw, releases August 31. Set in small-town Idaho, Stephen Graham Jones’ newest tale, My Heart Is A Chainsaw, unfolds through the eyes of an Indigenous teenager obsessed with the world of slasher films. Jones, the Ivena Baldwin Professor of English at the University of Colorado Boulder, is known for recasting the horror genre through Native characters and contemporary political twists. In this novel, for example, gentrification is the gore; the affluent are the preferred victims. And the final girl—i.e., the last woman left to confront the killer, typically an innocent cheerleader type—is nonwhite and aware of herself as a sexual being. Ahead of the book’s August 31 release, we spoke with the author about his impact on the slasher genre and upending the virgin-as-heroine trope.

Colorado Governor Jared Polis Supports #FreeBritney Movement On Social Media

On July 26, 2021, Gov. Jared Polis wrote a post on his social media handle supporting the #FreeBritney movement. I don’t personally know Britney Spears, but I completely sympathize with her. The bar for removing someone’s control over their own money and life should be very, very, very high. I fully understand that occasionally someone is an immediate danger to themself or others and there might be a need for short-term detention or guardianship.
