POP-UP: Trent Burkett

Saturday, December 8, 6-9PM 




















"My appreciation for functional objects ranges from the strictly everyday use of objects to the more eccentric and sculptural aspects of experiencing objects.  Their use can become obscured and inter-changed.  My aesthetic incorporates forms and surface that employ organic / gestural qualities as well as architectural / human invented forms.  In this regard, I attempt to create a dialogue between sculptural and utilitarian ideas."

- Trent Burkett 


Trent Burkett is a sculptor and professor of art. He is currently Full Professor of Ceramics and Sculpture and Chair of the Department of Visual Art at University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA. Burkett has established himself as a nationally exhibiting artist based in the California Central Coast. He continues to build on his current successes in teaching, creative research, and sharing his creative work with a vigilant audience.



POP-UP: Rick Yoshimoto

Saturday, December 15, 6-9PM 






























"The plates are short stories about a long ceramic process. Spontaneous expression can get lost within the time and space of forming, drying, firing, glazing, firing and sometimes firing again. So much time goes by between different stages. Thought streams are interrupted. Keeping the expressed creative intent fresh and cohesive in each art form is the challenge and reward."
