Explore a group exhibition showcasing functional art and design with a focus on material process. Each artist or designer has selected a material of their choice to create functional objects and art that inspires them specifically.

Artists in the show include ceramicist and sculptor Evan Lopez, Ceramicist Sofia Limon, sculptor Stephen Hartzog, and designer Nicholas Bijan Pourfard. All artists currently practice their work full-time in San Diego, and all practice within different mediums, allowing for a better opportunity to work together in creating one mutual cohesive space. The show will be open to the public for one day and then by appointment only for the remainder of the week.
