I've been enjoying finding wonderful potters as we traveled in France, in places I was told to look, and in others we happened upon. Potters everywhere. Locally, too there are skilled and inspired potters everywhere. And other artists. The Coronado Art Association is one of many such organizations of local artists. It's centered in Coronado, open to any one in the San Diego area who passes their jury's scrutiny. It's largely composed of painters, also a few potters, photographers, jewelers, wood carvers... They -- we -- show and sell our work in Spreckel's Park in Coronado, on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month, 9-4. What a pleasant way to spend a sunny Sunday. I'll be there most of these Sundays for the summer.
Come by and I'll share a chair. Have a look at what the others are showing. The quality is generally very high; you'll see what's to your taste.
Influenced by the beach as well as the park, maybe, I've been making magnets, like these.
And tried out these little shell shapes as cabinet pulls. It works. Want custom cabinet handles?
There seems no end to the possibilities, in ideas and applications. And so many people making it ourselves, or playing it or performing it ourselves. Who fits this image we hear about so much, of Americans as dull couch potatoes and spectators?
