This weekend will be Renegade Craft Fair's kick off event for the year at Fort Mason in San Francisco! Come by April 1-2 from 11-6 pm to eat, drink, and purchase handcrafted products from a number of vendors! I'll be there in booth 69!
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!
I'm excited to participate in a Potters in Protest event this Sunday, February 26 from 5-8 pm at Starline Social Club Ballroom. For a donation of $40-100, attendees will receive a handmade bowl of their choosing and dinner that includes chili, salad, and bread! All proceeds will go to International Rescue Committee and Planned Parenthood. Click on this link to RSVP at Eventbrite.
Make pots to do good things.
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!
My stockist, Local Nomad, located in Phoenix, Arizona was featured in LA Fashion Snob, a lifestyle blog written by Heather Petrey. Local Nomad focuses on carrying handmade, small-batch goods from makers around the world, creating a shared connectivity across multiple narratives. I was ecstatic to be mentioned by Lauren, the shop's owner, as one of her favorite brands she carries! Thanks, Lauren! If you are ever in Phoenix, please visit Local Nomad.
