Jee has had her fingers in clay at sfclayworks since we opened in 2011; though if her memory serves her right, she has been working on and off in clay since early 2001.

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.
