The Portola Art Gallery presents "Shelter-in-Place Portfolio" - ceramic creations by Misako Kambe of Berkeley. The exhibition includes Misako's most recent ceramic artworks produced during the pandemic.

During the pandemic, Misako has had limited access to her wood kilns, so she expanded her collection by working with crystals formed on the ceramic surface, as well as new tableware using a regular gas kiln. This exhibit includes two series of tableware: "Shinogi" and "Rinka-bachi." "Shinogi," with ridge lines carved on the surface, is named for the appearance of ridges on Japanese swords. "Rinka-bachi" means "flower petal shaped bowls."

Due to safety precautions, an artist reception will not be held. Please contact Misako directly via her website (www.misakokambearts.com) with any questions and to see more of her ceramic creations.
