Almost three years later than we hoped, we finally broke ground on our new studio on Monday!
We have a contractor doing the digging and foundation work, but after that it’ll just be us building it.
ACC San Francisco is one of the best and most enjoyable fine craft shows in the country, and it should be well worth the trip.
I’ve relaunched our Etsy shop with a few items, including some of our rarely seen Anodized Aluminum jewelry. More will come.
Check it out!
We’ll be showing our jewelry and vases and clocks at the Oakland Farmers Market this Saturday the 12th of April.
These are a couple of examples of our patinaed brass desk clocks.
We have a number of reasons to be pleased to announce our first wallpiece of the year!
First and foremost, we’re happy with the way the piece turned out. It’s an unusual piece for us, symbolic of our transition from our old studio of 25 years into a temporary space at American Steel Studios in West Oakland. The central piece is something that I made years ago before I hit upon the idea of assembling the wallpieces by bolting together individual pieces that were patinaed separately. Also, it’s the first wallpiece we’ve finished in our new temporary studio space at American Steel Studios. That means that our temporary space is nearly fully functional after three hectic months of moving and building and setting up operations. (As you can well imagine, moving out of a space you have occupied for 25 years is not the easiest task.)
Finally, we’ve put it up on display at Riva Cucina while moving some other wallpieces around there. If you haven’t eaten at Riva Cucina yet, you should!
We’re all set up and ready for three days of retail in Baltimore.
