Maker Faire This Weekend

The 12th Annual Maker Faire is happening at the San Mateo Event Center May 19-21. Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.

I will be selling my pottery in Booth 12 along with many other makers, including my good friend, Leah Staley Designs. Come stop by and say hello to us! You can purchase your tickets here or email me for a discount ticket!

Please Vote: FedEx Small Business $25K Grant

I'm in the running to secure a $25,000 small business grant from FedEx. Every 24 hours from now until April 5, you can vote for my business to earn a grant that will allow me to expand my studio space and hire a team of studio assistants, which will increase my production and allow me to focus on future designs to help me build this business! Please vote for me here

Brock Keeling of Curbed SF posted a piece on ceramicists in the Bay Area worthy of attention and included Gopi Shah Ceramics! Curbed SF highlights every aspect of living in San Francisco, for people who care about their city, their streets, and their homes. Gopi Shah Ceramics is in great company with MM Clay, Sara Paloma, and Gerhard Ceramics. Take a look at the article here. How exciting to be featured on one of my favorite websites!
