I have been invited to be part of the pride celebration this year put on by The Mix . This Saturday July 10th. Located at the corner of 7th and Saint Helens Ave there will be a Makers Market from 12 – 7 in addition to the wild festivities throughout the day. The Market features local crafts-persons and artists in addition to performers and DJ’s durring the Block Party.
Happy Pride! I took this opportunity to create some new Items for your enjoyment! I put my personal spin on a favorite local product known as the “Float” or Sea Ball. I have modified my signature silver cutting process used in my Decal Cups to create custom crests for these decorative floats. And because of pride I produced some in a rainbow hue, kind of a Pride ball if you will, complete with the prerequisite unicorn. Available this weekend or at my studio on Hilltop located in the back of Fulcrum Gallery.
This Sunday we’re doing it again, Never Heard’s 2nd multi location shopping shuffle! Come out and quarantine with the rest of your long forgotten friends! The weather will be just fine! After your delicious brunch stroll the ave shopping for gifts and fashions like only Tacoma can serve up!
Now I love the energy on 6th ave I always have a good time. I will be at Jazzbones from 12 – 7 pm with my eclectic brand of unique glassware. Baby Head Cups, Diamond Facet Wine Bulbs, the exquisite GlassEarth I’ll be presenting a new batch of Tacoma Tumblers along with some Venetian inspired aperitif cups. Always something new, come by and see!
The Flea is celebrating one year as your local plug for Tacoma art and style. To celebrate this milestone they are taking over the block with a multi location art fair of local artists and vendors. In addition to the humble store front on 6th Ave artists will be featured in Jazz Bones and Alley Cat and Scorpio Rising paired with your favorite local DJ’s to keep the vibe going into the night. I’ll be at Jazz Bones with my usual selection of oddities and arts along with some new products Ill be testing out on an unsuspecting audience. I’ve got a Baby Head tribute cup to the late MF DOOM for those that know also a new line of Decal Cups with familiar slogans of Tacoma. Mask up and come on out!
This Saturday from 12-9 join me and the other hearty souls at The Mix in Tacoma for a Holiday Pop Up Bazaar. Snacks, drinks, gifts and other holiday treasures will be available for purchase as well as my eclectic glass designs. Get out and do some social distancing with the fam! See you there!
We are still coming together this year, just not as close. I love Tacoma for it’s fierce brand of local pride and civic unity. It is something I feel that is something communities strive for yet is not often realized. As Tacomans this bond manifests in our fashion, our events and our local shopping habits. This is why you are invited to this weekends festivities.
Fall is in the air and the Autumnal Equinox is around the corner, it must be harvest time. For me I have just finished a fresh batch of delicious pumpkins, and now it’s time to find loving homes for them. This years fall season is bound to be different. With the recent limitations of social interaction the on-line market place has become more important than ever. We are seeing new trends and creative ways of social interaction. Just as the incredibly popular app Tic Toc has revolutionized short format movie bits. Online shopping and food delivery has become an essential service. All of these elements existed before lock down yet now have matured and become integrated into our daily existence. Moving forward will require much creativity and growth from each of us. I spend a good portion of my day growing my online presence and streamlining my retail platforms. This is especially important coming into the fall retail season. So from now until October 31st I am offering free shipping on my Pumpkin Heads with the “shipfree” coupon on my Fulcrum Gallery site
I use an optic mold to create the vertical ribs in each design.
Join me and my friends this Saturday 12pm @ The Flea.
The Flea is a Tacoma gem, a diamond in the rough and a needle in a haystack all at the same time. Tucked in between The Alley Cat Lounge and Emerald leaves Dispensary on 6th Ave. This may be the smallest retail venue art gallery in the city by far. The inside has the square footage of a Volkswagen bus, just big enough for a dedicated patron, and the limited capacity is perfect for today’s social distancing requirements.
What truly makes this venue so unique is its accessibility for both for the artist and the citizens of Tacoma. It’s an eternal “Pop Up” of talent constantly showcasing local artists on a day to day basis, you never know what you might find. Whether presenting paintings, prints, sculpture or Tacoma fashions the steady rotation of artists and designers embody the spirit and identity of our city.
