Handmade Highlights from San Francisco’s Renegade Craft FairAuthor:Stephanie Orma
Creativity was in the air this past weekend as SF’s craftiest folks came together for the Renegade Craft Fair on July 9th and 10th. From silkscreened to letterpressed to knitted and glazed, the Fort Mason Festival Pavillion was teeming with entrepreneurial makers offering up their delicious handmade wares. Here are just a few of the highlights:
Berkeley-based artist Rae Dunn displayed her covet-worthy cups, dishes, and plaques. The talented cermacist combines clay and typography into perfectly imperfect housewares.
Wood Thumb is the recently-launched cheeky and stylish brainchild of David and Christopher Steinrueck. From their Potrero Hill workshop, the brother duo create wood ties made from recycled wood.
Mission District’s Adjowah Brodie of The Weekend Store takes apart vintage typewriters and transforms the old-fashioned keys into letter-perfect jewelry.
Influenced by the clean simplicity of Scandinavian design, Paula Lopez-Otero plays with contrasting colors and textures crafting one-of-a-kind ceramic jars from her San Francisco studio.
From cupcakes to cows, Texas native-turned-Bay Area crafter Alyson Thomas of Drywell Art melds her passions for food and art into clever, meaty diagrams.
