Hello Hello!! Last month I had the opportunity to finally visit the Renegade Fair held at Fort Mason center here in San Francisco. Its been on my list for forever! So, today I am soooo excited to share the pictures from the fair. I got to meet and interact with so many new and amazing artists and makers who came together from all over the country.
It's amazing how skillful and talented these makers are. Some of the stories completely changed my outlook on small businesses. The challenges, the fun and everything in between that they face to show their talent to the world...
My first stop was the Salt and Pipper, from Modesto, California. A beautiful collaboration between husband and wife, Josh and Pips. Josh is the hands behind the gorgeous pottery and Pips is the brush behind the stunning mixed media art.
Next up was the stunning shibori by designer and owner Jenny Fong of Modern Shibori. Jenny is a wonderfully talented designer who works from her outdoor studio in Berkeley, California. She creates amazing tie and dye effects with 100% natural dyes. She also hosts classes from time to time teaching the art of Shibori. I've signed up for my first, you should too :). Check out her class schedule on here.
My next stop was Klai, from Los Angles. Beautiful handcrafted ceramics with fun handpainted sketch on them. Designed, curated and hand painted by the beautiful Klai Brown.
Jess from Jess Carter Ceramics is another fabulously talented handmade ceramic artist based in Petaluma, California. Do check her etsy store for more inspiration. I loved the combinations of earthen color with saturated colors, creating a perfect hue. Perfect for tea addicts like me :).
As I continued exploring the gorgeous isle full of handmade pieces, my eye caught this beautiful and happy looking tea and saucer set and I just couldn't stop adoring its prettiness.
Simple, modern and pretty dinnerware and homeware collection by Rossella, owner and designer at RossLabDesign. Every piece is so pretty yet functional that you would want to buy all at once :). Originally from Italy, Rosella is now based in San Jose where she creates magic with her clay. Check out her Etsy store for the latest collection or visit her website here.
And here's some more inspiration from the other booths :).
Would love to know your favorites! Check out the Renegade schedule for their upcoming exhibitions in your city!
