one of my wishes is to someday have an entire cupboard full of handmade ceramic dishes and plates and serving platters and tea pots and sushi trays and and and you get it. i've made a little bit of progress by picking up some gorgeous mugs and a few other ceramic accoutrements from lakewood artist Gina DeSantis. her perfectly weighted and luxuriously functional pieces are such pretty compositions of texture and color, gorgeous and unfussily modern. sigh. love. :)
you can see her this weekend at the Bazaar Bizarre, part of Ingenuity Fest, a three day celebration of art and technology in Cleveland. she will be in the AllSignsGo area AND she will be offering some special deals (there is a print&bring coupon on her blog, hint hint!) pretty sweet!
the hours for the Bazaar Bizarre are a little shorter than the Ingenuity Fest's hours, so here they are: friday (7/25) from 4-9 pm, saturday (7/26) from noon-6pm and sunday (7/27) from noon-6pm.
there is an admission fee to the festival, $10 for one day or $15 for a weekend pass (young people under 12 are free.) BUT admission is FREE for everyone during "happy hour" on Friday (7/25) from 4-6pm! a perfect chance to run in and shop! or click here to get a coupon code for BOGO tickets
(i also heard that sara from small screen designs will be vending too, check her out, her prints and shirts are way rad!)
