Outside of her busy day to day responsibilities, Jee finds time to slip into the studio and get lost in her meticulously carved porcelain pieces.

Seasoned Living: Ceramic Works of Marcia Rosser

It is 2016 and already five years since we all took the plunge to create sfclayworks. It has always been a desire of ours to have an active gallery space in the front of the studio. We are pleased to announce that besides our Annual Student and Community show, our SF Open Studio Show, and our yearly guest artist show, we are finally making that happen.

When we started tossing around the idea for our new plan, we had the difficult task of figuring out who we wanted to showcase during our first display. We quickly decided that long time studio member, Marcia Rosser, would be a fantastic selection.

Throughout the years we have watched Marcia move from making pottery predominately thrown on the wheel, to her fantastical salt and pepper […]
