Ceramics

Unique Firing Techniques. Custom Glazes and Shapes

As ceramic artists, each of us utilizes different clay bodies, glaze applications, and firing techniques. Some of the pieces available are hand built, stamped, and molded to create items like dishes, wall hangings, decorative and functional dishes, and sculpture. Our other ceramicists work at the potter’s wheel, and throw bowls, vases, plates, mugs, and dishes. Much of the work we create is high fired in a gas kiln, leaving a finish that is food-safe and can be put the oven, dishwasher, and microwave. We also have artists that specialize in aesthetic pieces, and practice Raku firing, which is a Japanese firing technique that produces a unique and unpredictable blackened, metallic, or crackled finish. While our techniques vary, we each find beauty in the ability to transform clay into beautiful works of art.

Visit Bodega
Art, Food, History and "The Birds"

 

We are located in the beautiful village of Bodega. You will find residences and business in buildings from the mid-to-late 19th century. It is a great stop on your way to the coast. It is steeped in history and film lore. The town of Bodega was known historically as Bodega Corners or Bodega Roads, to distinguish it from the Port of Bodega or Bodega Bay, as it is known today, which is about four miles from Bodega.

For film buffs take a drive to Bodega to see where the Alfred Hitchcock Movie "The Birds" was filmed. After filming “Shadow of A Doubt” in Santa Rosa in 1948, Alfred Hitchcock returned to Sonoma County in 1961 to find a remote coastal location for his next project “The Birds.”

In Bodega is where you can see the schoolhouse of Annie Hayworth (Suzanne Pleshette), at 17110 Bodega Lane, which, in the film, appears to be just up the hill from the bay. The house was originally a schoolhouse, a local community centre and for a while a guest house. It’s now a private residence.The 150 year old Potter School behind St. Theresa’s Church five miles south of Bodega Bay in Bodega, was vacant at the time of the filming. After Alfred Hitchcock’s crew repaired the exterior it was used for several scenes.

The Casino is a great local bar to hang out and have a brew. It is a hang out for some great local chefs who have rotating menus of the best local cuisine. Hog Island oysters, Dungeness crab, Akaushi beef, Salmon, Wild Bay Shrimp, Scallops and more. Nothing fancy about the dining experience just local down home atmosphere. Check in with the bartender and find out who is in the kitchen that night. Check out the chef's menu for the day.
