New Works on Display at Harmonic Brewing

Exciting news: Two of my pieces are now on display at Harmonic Brewing in San Francisco! Harmonic is a fantastic craft brewery in the Dogpatch that makes 10+ interesting and seasonal beers. Their taproom is open to the public five nights a week, and it's become my favorite place to unwind after a long day in the metal shop.

I've gotten to know Harmonic's founders, Eddie Gobbo, Jon Verna, and Eric Tisch, over the last few months because we're neighbors -- we all share a roof over at ShopFloor Design (hence my new happy hour habit). If you're on this side of town, come by for a drink, some cheesy popcorn, and a peek at these two wall hangings!

Harmonic Brewing is located at 1050 26th Street in San Francisco, and their taproom is open Wednesday through Sunday. Fun fact: You can bring your kids, your dog, and outside food into the taproom. So round up your crew and make an evening out of it! Check out their website for hours and more info. 

And if you're interested in purchasing either of these two pieces, email me at Cheers!

Elektra Steel's First Stockist: Paxton Gate

I'm excited to announce that my dodecahedron floor lamp is now available for purchase at Paxton Gate, both online and at their retail location in San Francisco's Mission District.

The dodecahedron floor lamp, nestled amongst feathers, eggs, terrariums, and other curiosities at Paxton Gate in San Francisco.

If you've ever strolled down Valencia Street, I'm sure you've noticed their striking window displays. They specialize in taxidermy, skeletons, rare insects, exotic plants, and succulents: "treasures and oddities inspired by the garden and natural sciences," in their words. Totally up my alley.

Another shot of the lamp.

Paxton Gate has actually been one of my favorite stores since I was in ninth grade -- I would occasionally stop to explore their charming and macabre curiosities on my way home from high school. So, you can imagine how excited I am to have them as my very first stockist!

I recently got introduced to Paxton Gate by my friends Vinit and Spencer at The Pricerie. The Pricerie's mission is to connect makers with appraisers in order to help them price their work. This is a much-needed service, in my opinion: every artist and maker I've talked to has struggled with pricing.

Anyway, I submitted my geo planter to be priced, and one of the five expert appraisers they matched me with was Michael Levy, Creative & Operations Director at Paxton Gate. He saw some of my other work, asked Vinit and Spencer for an intro, and the rest is history.
