That was a lot of fun. Walking around downtown Davis is always a treat, but with a plethora of ceramics galleries sprouting up just for the weekend in vacant storefronts, (and I really mean a Plethora...) it's just short of heaven. I took tons of pictures... (well actually it was my studio monkey that took most of them.) Unfortunately I didn't get names to go with a lot of the work.

There were 2 artists that I did manage to get their names.

The first was Clarine Wong. A potter doing good sized platters with amazing cobalt brushwork.

The second is something a bit more astounding. This was a piece titled "Intolerance Unfurled" by Ilena Finocchi at the Artery show. It's a brilliant work and the picture below doesn't do it justice at all. I was drawn to it's surface, (very complex, I can only guess how it was made), but it was the location that dropped my jaw.
This is like finding out your neighbor around the corner has a car kiln and a pug mill.

I had to end this post with a word of thanks going to my photographer. I couldn't pay my hard working monkey in bananas this time, but she did settle for a slice of pizza the size of her face and a shared salad.
Thanks Squeak, you did good.

You are amazingly up to date. I get it by phone and then I get it via your blog. Nico did a treat! I wish I was there. Nicely done.

For some reason the comment left behind the second part:
