A welcoming sign stands at the entrance to Bari’s Precious Pots Studio in the rural outskirts of Springfield, Missouri.

We are thrilled to offer a huge new selection of pottery by Bari Precious.  We packed as much of it into our car this summer as we could!  Please join us as we unveil and celebrate the new collection this Saturday, August 16th, 6 to 10pm.

We selected from a wide array of available pottery at Bari's Precious Pots Studio

The colorful and functional pottery of Bari Precious has been a hit since it was first offered by Domain over three years ago.  It is now collected by a number of locals and visitors, and this large new selection of pieces will be sure to attract even more collectors.  Domain is the only retailer offering her work west of the Mississippi River.

The shelves of Bari's studio are lined with gorgeous pieces of pottery.  It was difficult to choose!

Working in her “Precious Pots” studio in the rural outskirts of Springfield, she produces a variety of stoneware pottery that is art with practical applications in the home.  Her hand-painted designs and glazes display a sense of tribal or geometric or nature-inspired influences.

In addition to vases, pitchers and mugs, she creates plates, platters and dishes that are specifically designed to be safe for use in ovens, microwaves and barbecues.  Domain also offers copies of some of Bari’s favorite recipes which can be made using her stoneware pottery including baked brie, brownies, banana bread, honey-mustard chicken, and baked fish.

We enjoyed a fun-filled evening of dinner, wine and pottery-buying a few weeks ago at Bari's countryside home and studio. The 5-course dinner was prepared with and served on Bari's lovely pottery.

Bari Precious was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia and became interested in working with clay from an early age, going on to study sculpture at the Vancouver School of Art.  She left school to embark upon other adventures, including farming and communal life in rural British Columbia, and then travels through Europe, Asia and the Middle East during the 1970s.

She nurtured her fascination with Iran by spending time there teaching art and English, and later returning to work with archeologists by building a kiln and reassembling excavated pottery.  On return to the U.S., she raised her family for several years before reentering university studies and earning a B.F.A. in ceramics.

Bari's pottery is largely functional, including lovely pieces that can be used for baking and serving.

School of Ceramic Fish Swimming Into Domain!

"Darwin" by Peggy Wollins

“Darwin” by Peggy Wollins

Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will host a reception to highlight the newly arrived work of ceramic artist Peggy Wollins.  This installment of Domain’s monthly Third Saturday gallery openings will take place on Saturday, July 19th, 6 until 10 p.m. at 3129 Beach Boulevard South.  Wollins’ wall-mounted ceramic fish are a whimsical new addition to the Gallery.  Live entertainment by jazz saxophonist Henry Ashwood will also be featured during the evening, and complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvre will be offered.

"OMG" by Peggy Wollins

“OMG” by Peggy Wollins

Peggy Wollins creates fish, or more specifically, fish heads.  From her Maymeep Studio in Centreville, Virginia, she depicts imaginary, one-of-a-kind marine life from clay.  According to Wollins, “As a lifelong art junkie, doodler and animal lover my subject matter makes sense. I worked in the art gallery industry for ten years, stopping when I had kids. I started taking a pottery wheel class, and was quickly smitten.”  Her pieces are wheel-thrown, then altered and augmented using found objects.  She uses a variety of ceramic firing methods and also some post fired finishes, including hand applied gold, silver and copper leaf.  Old typewriters, sewing machines, stereo components and other simple machinery yield a treasure trove of small components for the final quirky twist in each art work.  “& Gallery” will display and offer a selection of new, all-original pieces by Wollins.

Tribal multi-colored fish: painting by John Shevlin

Tribal multi-colored fish: painting by John Shevlin

Gulfport artist John Shevlin Jr. has dubbed his signature style “Tropical Funk,” with its bold colors, strong graphics and a simplistic or tribal style with subject matter inspired by Florida and South Beach scenes.  A sense of humor is a strong element in much of his work, including “funky” fish, flamingos, crustaceans and penguin “snowbirds” complete with sunglasses.  Palms and hibiscus blossoms are frequent subjects of his “pop art” stylings.  His fondness for martinis shows up in many humorous small paintings.  He uses acrylics, often mixed with metallics, creating a unique texture and feel.  In addition to his traditional paintings, John now offers some new works that are treated and suitable for display in outdoor settings.

His work has been collected internationally, and has recently been adopted by a Caribbean resort for décor in guest rooms, as well as the offices and public areas of a corporate headquarters.  He won an award for oil and acrylic paintings at the 2011 Space Coast Art Show.  Shevlin paintings have become a ubiquitous feature in hundreds of local homes.

Meet the Artists (and Author!)… this Saturday at Domain

Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will host its next “Meet the Artists” event with a showing of new work by mother and son folk artists, Linda and Matt Worsham, as well as an appearance by local author Ani Crane.  The event will take place at “& Gallery” (3129 Beach Blvd. South in Gulfport) on Saturday, May 17th, 6 p.m. – 10 p.m.

The artists and author will be on hand to discuss their work.  Complimentary beverages and hors d’oeuvres will be offered, and jazz saxophonist Henry Ashwood will entertain.

Linda and Matt Worsham collaborate in their own line of work they call “GypsyCat Creations,” mixed-media folk art sculptures with a strong sense of whimsy and play.  Recycled and found materials are the primary ingredients of the pieces, inside and out, with sealed, repurposed fabric on the surfaces creating a finished texture and color.  Lighting elements are added to some pieces to create functional art “lamps.”  “Critters” such as cats, dogs, birds, dragons, frogs, geckos and more, sometimes anthropomorphized with human costumes and characteristics, are the primary subjects of “GypsyCat.”  Matt and Linda create pieces individually, though they often collaborate in ideas, techniques and materials.  Matt’s creations, including his popular giraffes, are more typically dense and muted in color, while Linda’s pieces are often vibrantly colored and humorous.

Linda has also created a smaller body of work in paintings and will show some of those during the event.  Matt works as a case manager for adults with developmental disabilities.  He developed the basic process for “GypsyCat Creations” while leading art classes for his clients.  He began creating more complex forms on his own time and started “GyspyCat Creations” in 2010.  Linda is retired from a career in social services.  After creating art in many forms in her spare time, she was inspired by her son’s “GypsyCat Creations” and joined him in the creative process.  Both are Gulfport residents.  They are veteran participants in the twice-monthly Gulfport Art Walk.  Their work has been offered at “& Gallery” since 2012, and collectors from throughout the country have claimed “critters” of their own.

Gulfport resident and author Ani Crane has been a writing teacher for 20 years in New York City and practices daily journal writing.  She will be on hand to discuss her memoir, “How I Arrived Here,” described as “the story of the transformational journey of one woman from codependence to empowerment and all the adventures along the way… from happiness to sorrow, struggle, recovery and finally victory and joy!”  Copies of the book will be on sale for the author to sign.

"How I Arrived Here" is Ani Crane's memoir.

This Saturday: Amazing Paintings of Local Scenes by One of Our Most Popular Artists, Gary Mellenbruch

Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will host a reception to highlight the work of Tierra Verde painter Gary Mellenbruch during its next “Meet the Artists” event on Saturday, April 19th, 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. at 3129 Beach Boulevard South.

The featured artist specializes in depictions of local seaside landmarks, as well as maritime creatures and mythical mermaids.  His work has become a customer favorite since he began displaying it in “&Gallery” in 2012.  Gary will be on hand to discuss his work and answer questions.

Live entertainment by jazz saxophonist Henry Ashwood will also be featured during the evening, and complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvre will be offered.

Tierra Verde artist Gary Mellenbruch’s watercolor and designers’ gouache paintings depict scenes that many local residents will find familiar.  Iconic and colorful attractions such as the Don CeSar resort, Merry Pier and the Wharf restaurant in Pass-a-Grille, as well as Gulfport’s own Williams Pier, O’Maddy’s Bar & Grill, and Pia’s Trattoria are among the images that draw on talents Gary has honed in a long career as an architectural illustrator.

Gulfport’s beloved Pia’s Trattoria by Gary Mellenbruch

Originally from Kansas City, he studied industrial design and after becoming an apprentice illustrator, formed his own “Mellenbruch Studios” in 1969, creating architectural illustrations for clients from around the world.  Accompanied by his sailboat, he moved to Tierra Verde in 1998, continuing illustration work, but concentrating on fine arts.  He also operates his own art framing business.  Attention to details and an emphasis on scale and perspective stem from his years in architectural illustration.

"Dolphin Pod in the Surf" by Gary Mellenbruch

The Florida environment also inspires his many depictions of natural maritime scenes, including vivid portrayals of sea birds and their habitat.  He is also fond of mermaids and has devoted some of his paintings to those creatures of maritime lore.  Gary has shown work at “& Gallery” since its inception, and offers both originals and affordably-priced prints.
