Emma Spakoski at Salt
Emma Spakoski is a ceramicist intent on creating a peculiar world inhabited by colorful, anthropomorphic sculptures. By giving life to pieces that fall within the realms of both wild fancy and simple necessity, Emma encourages viewers to cast their everyday surroundings into a fantastical light. Spooning soup out of a clawfooted bathtub bowl begs one to wonder—is this a tiny bathtub or am I a towering giant? Using an array of brilliant glazes, Emma imagines her ever-emotive characters exchanging sly glances while whistling playful tunes. Please join us for an opening reception on Friday October 7th from 5-9pm, accompanied by Thereminite's ethereal tunes from 5-6:30pm. Creature Comforts will be on view through the weekend; gallery hours are Fri-Sun 12-5 and by appointment. Follow @tinyceramicdiorama and @saltcalifornia on instagram.
