Saturday join myself and many other fabulous creatives for the official Tacoma Pride Makers Market. You will find us in Fireman’s Park overlooking Commencement Bay just beyond the main stage on Pacific Avenue. Come by and check us out 12pm to 6pm during the festivities throughout the day.
Tacoma Pride Festival honors the LGBTQIA+ community by celebrating pride in who we are as valuable, creative members of a diverse population in the South Puget Sound region, we invite you to CELEBRATE with Us!
PUNK ROCK FLEA MARKET returns to the aromatic environs of Tacoma, at Alma Mater 1322 Fawcett Ave, with our special healing blend of bargains, beats and booze! Hundreds of vendors from across the region will sell their finest wares, DJ’s will fill the air with their sweet noise, we’ll have alcoholic drinks for the grownups, fattening treats for the kids, savory food for pretty much everyone and the kind of open and welcoming atmosphere that makes you wish we could scrap consumer society altogether and just start over!
The PRFM remains an ALL AGES event. Bring the kids, bring your parents, bring the whole damn crew. And we are PROUD to say that since 2006 it costs just ONE DOLLAR to take a deep dive into the bowels of punk rock ephemera while supporting local independent business.
As always, the PRFM supports our friends the Low Income Housing Institute, aka. LIHI, with a donation from our proceeds. LIHI is a non-profit organization that provides homes for homeless and low-income people all around the Puget Sound, and is currently leading the effort to build tiny self –contained houses for homeless people and families around our region. More info about them at www.lihi.org.

Once again making the trek up north to Hanger 30. I am happy to announce my participation in the Legendary Seattle Night Market. Last time I was here was super fun, great crowd, bangin’ music, not to mention the amazing vendors.
I will have some new work available and some old favorites. Currently working out the kinks for a line of yard art this season, TBA. Additionally I have a fresh batch of tumblers ready to go for that special drinker in your life.
Also I am trying out some new colors to fill out the Baby Head spectrum. A Dark Green and a soothing Teal are being added to the line up. Be the first to snatch one up!
Along with the drink ware I have some ridiculously funny smiling Bunny Ornaments. a little late for Easter, but it’s never too early for a bunny?
Seattle’s largest monthly Night Market is celebrating the New Moon with an illuminated Maker’s Market that transforms the Magnuson Hangar 30 into a festive Spring Night Market. This year’s New Moon Night Market welcomes the return of the high-flying Lucha Libre Volcanica wrestlers outdoors and more fun throiughout.
Stay tuned for programming updates, vendor announcements and food line-up on our Facebook Event Page below.
SCULPTURE from the archives of the Cape Cod Museum of Art. April 5 – July 9, 2023
This piece is from my Cast Glass Vessel exploration. It is undoubtedly one of the stronger works from this series. Equally important for this show, it was locally produced in Massachusetts mid 2000’s at Martha’s Vineyard Glassworks. Shogun in particular showcases the distinctive assembled look indicative of this work. Smooth visual elements are embedded in contrast to the hazed rugged structures. Additionally you can read more about Cast Glass Vessels here.

This weekend I’m setting up my goods at the Foss Waterway Seaport for the ever popular Tacoma Night Market. I have been a part of this market for many years, possibly since it’s inception. It has been amazing watching this market grow, finding it’s voice and ultimately it’s perfect location. The Foss Waterway Seaport is such a location, with it’s spacious lofty construction and the incredible collection of wooden boats this venue has a historical element that is humbling and unique.
Join me and the other makers this weekend Saturday from 5-10pm and the the lively “Drag Brunch” on Sunday from 11-4. I will have unique items not found on my normal selling platforms along with some new items like the “Tacoma Dicer” my new silver decal drinking tumblers. see you there.
I am excited to be a part of this eclectic collection of workers, weirdos, and witches. Market of the Beast features a contemporary collection of jewelers, fabricators, artists and more. All curated with a delightfully dark aesthetic.
Saturday December 11th from 1-6 pm at multiple locations on Capitol Hill in Seattle WA
