Recap: Renegade Craft Fair

Renegade Craft Fair is one of my all-time favorite fairs in San Francisco -- the work is beautiful, the space at Fort Mason is stunning, and the vibe is fun. And for the very first time, I got to participate as a seller rather than as a shopper! 

At the show, I debuted my collection of steel mosaic wall hangings. I had no idea how it would go -- it was pretty different from the faceted vessels I'd making previously -- and I wasn't sure what to expect. But people loved them! They were drawn to the bold shapes and patterns, and many had questions for me about how I'd made them.

I'm currently working on several large commission jobs in this style, but with more complex patterns and tones. I'm really loving this current direction, and I'm excited to keep exploring this path in my work! 

Recap: West Elm Pop-Up in Emeryville

I did a pop-up shop at the Bay Street West Elm in Emeryville, CA, on April 9th and 10th! I had some great conversations, and sold a handful of pieces, including a few Geo Bowls. Best of all, I got encouraging feedback on the large wall hanging -- people seemed really drawn to it! Check out the slideshow to check out my set-up.

Recap: West Elm Pop-Up in Palo Alto

I hosted my very first pop-up shop yesterday! The wonderful folks at the Palo Alto West Elm invited me to set up shop for a day -- I got to take over an entire dining table of theirs and sell my work!

As you can see in the photos, it gave me an opportunity to debut my newest piece, a large 2D steel wall hanging. Almost everyone who walked by stopped to comment on it! It was validating to hear that people like this new direction -- I'm hoping to do a whole series of pieces like this.

I have two more West Elm pop-ups on the books for this spring! I'll be at the Bay Street / Emeryville location April 9-10 and May 21-22. Check out my upcoming events for the full list of opportunities to shop Elektra Steel in person!
