Beverly Mayeri is a studio artist living in the Bay Area with over 30 years experience as an established ceramic sculptor. She earned a BA from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MA in sculpture at San Francisco State University. Mayeri works with refined and elegant heads and figures, often using meticulously patterned details that allude to the inner life of emotions, thoughts, and human frailties.

Calvin Ma is a ceramic sculptor born and raised in San Francisco, California. He received his BA in Industrial Arts from San Francisco State University and MFA in sculpture from the Academy of Art University. His work has been exhibited in numerous national shows and awarded a number of accolades for his ceramic work. Calvin’s practice is both playful and adventurous, creating works that are rooted in childhood innocence and imagination.

Erika Sanada anthropomorphizes anxieties and insecurities into beautifully unusual creatures. Inspired by supernatural movies and animations, Erika’s aesthetics are based in and informed by magical and fantastic scenarios. With a delicate hand and masterful craftsmanship, her work is composed into dynamic compositions and imbued with a surreal feeling that the sculpture object is very much alive and ought to be cared for.
