Varda met Virgina Barclay, several years his junior, at the 'Art in Action' Fine Arts Pavillion at the 1940s San Francisco World's Fair. They married shortly after.
In the 1950s the 'Arts and Crafts Movement' was in its heyday. Pottery and Weaving were the biggest elements of it. This is a picture of Varda and Virginia in the Monterey Studio.
[Henry Miller far right] Varda invited Henry Miller to move to Big Sur. Miller was a guest in the 'Carriage House' for about 3 weeks while looking for a place of his own.
