Morgan Peck, Los Angelina ceramic artist, will be making a bay area cameo at the shop with her new work Half Stack. She will be here with clay bells on for the opening party Friday October 12th but the show will be up through November 9th. I for one have been admiring the pieces I have seen of hers at IKO IKO and Mochiun for sometime now, so when the opportunity arose to have her ceramic slabs on our table, boy oh boy, you bet I jumped like a jelly fish into a full triple-toe-arabesque-loop-heel-flip-ollie-back-front-gater-later pose in triumphant glee! Mark you calendars and come on down for the opening and be sure to snag up one of her lego-like sculptures before she heads back south. Check out more of her work here and here.

Cliff’s Work Out

26 October 2011
Cassie McGettigan

Cliff (A Potter) is a hardworking man.

Cliff Glover and his wife Marion Miller are ceramicists up in Albion, in Mendocino. They work from their home, where they’ve set up a wonderful showroom, studio, and kiln shed, as you can see here.

From the studio, they can look out at the forest and up at nice posters.

Here’s a look at Cliff’s admittedly he-ish bowls—

And Marion’s lovely, clearly she-ish bowl—

After a long day of work in the studio, these lucky two get to work out the clay beneath the redwoods.

We are delighted to be able to offer a selection of Cliff’s stoneware at the shop. We have small salad bowls, larger serving bowls, and mugs in right now, and we’ll put a few of the mugs up for sale on the website as well. They’re a real pleasure to behold and an even greater pleasure to use. Here they are taking in the astounding sight of Greenwood Cove.

Thanks, Cliff!
