Free Outdoor Ceramics Fair in Civic Center



For the first time since 1986, the San Francisco Civic Center Plaza is being used for an art show, the 4th Ceramics Annual of America.



The international festival is free to attend, and if you love something, it's all for sale at fairly reasonable prices, including the work of Damian Jones above.



The work ranges from traditional pottery shapes, such as the gorgeous vase by Steve Allen above...



...to abstract forms like the work of Katherine Dube above.



There are also pop figurative works by Mark Rivera...



...and this sinister piece by Hijiri Yahagi.



The show will be up from 9AM to 7PM today (Saturday) and all day tomorrow (Sunday). Check it out, and pose like the lady above with one of Esther Shimazu's figures.



Update: Returned on Sunday and bought a beautiful jug from Nathan Ring above.

Lots of levity in those figures. Last photo is freaking me out.

Ceramics are a bargain by comparison to paintings.
