2016 Exhibits
Realms: Land,
Sea and Sky

Artists:
Natasha Dikareva, Malia Landis, Crystal Morey

Seeking inspiration from the environment
around them, artists Natasha Dikareva, Malia
Landis, and Crystal Morey are interested in the
mystery, allure, grace and whimsy found in the
natural and imagined world we all share.

In their own voices, each artist uses the
tradition of clay to capture human emotion and
catalogue ideas of growth and adaptation, the
real and the imaginary, delicacy and
impermanence, flight and stillness, inner and
outward self.

Influenced by ideas of nature, myth, memory,
and the passage of time, these artists work to
understand and show the space we all inhabit.
The Three Realms is a contemplation of
theses spaces: the land and its interconnected
dependencies in humans, plants and animals,
the sea in it’s mysterious ecosystems and
continual cycles, and the sky in its
unpredictable temperament and as a gateway
to infinite space.

"las cadre" features the diverse creations of
many working artists. We recognize the need
for vigorous conversation as an essential part
of our creative process. The group, now in its
tenth year holds an irregular schedule of
potlucks and critiques, rotating among our
studios.

The DIY ethic is shared by each of the artists.
We seek out opportunities to support and
celebrate each other's vision, beyond
conventional and commercial venues. We
encourage you to give us your feedback and
we hope that you enjoy the art.

Claudia
Tarantino


Claudia grew up in San Francisco where her
mother carved and embellished porcelain
greenware and china painted in the dining
room. Although Claudia majored in art in
college, she is self-taught as a ceramic artist.
She graduated from Dominican College of San
Rafael, CA in 1966 where she studied painting,
but fell in love with clay. After graduating she
bought a wheel and a kiln and set about
becoming a proficient production potter for
many years. In 1978 Claudia shifted from
production stoneware to working in porcelain,
making small one-of-a-kind sculptural
containers, boxes and bottles, lusciously
colored with underglazes and china paints.
She exhibits her work in galleries nationally.
Her current work moves fluidly between the
teapot as sculpture and trompe l ‘oeil still life.
