In the mid - 1970s, my parents' Berkeley home was graced by the loan from Stephen de Staebler of one of his beautiful, earlier, low horizontal earthenware sculptures. Today, one of Stephen's very small figural ink drawings graces a wall of my music room in Washington, D.C. Stephen had donated the work to the Robin Hood Foundation, in New York City, after September 11; and I purchased the work from the Foundation as a benefit for victim's families of September 11.
