Welcome to Domain Home Accessories & Gallery
We fell in love with the “frog pottery” of Johnny Hughes as soon as we saw it. We hope you’ll enjoy it too. We are offering only a few pieces, including the pedestal bowl, small vases, large vase, small trays and mugs. Each is a unique, hand-made piece. Stop in and see them today… only at Domain Home Accessories & Gallery.
Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will host a reception to welcome visiting pottery artist Bari Precious and highlight a large cache of new work by the artist. This installment of Domain’s monthly “Meet the Artists” events will take place on Saturday, February 21st, 6 until 10 p.m. at 3129 Beach Boulevard South in Gulfport. Complimentary wine, hors d’oeuvre and live jazz will be offered.
The colorful and functional pottery of Bari Precious has been a hit since it was first offered by Domain four years ago. It is now regularly collected by a large number of clients. This new selection of pieces will offer a chance for guests to add to their collections of “Bari Ware” and will be sure to attract new collectors. Domain is the only retailer offering her ceramics east of the Mississippi River.
Working in her “Precious Pots” studio in the rural outskirts of Springfield, Missouri, 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, geometric or nature-inspired influences. In addition to vases, pitchers and mugs, she creates bowls, 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 and served using her stoneware pottery including baked brie, brownies, banana bread, honey-mustard chicken and baked fish.
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, 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. Her studio, gardens and home in the Missouri countryside are comfortable spaces where visitors are welcome to stop, share tea and peruse her “Precious Pots.”

Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will feature the work of local “plein air” artist Jana Somach during its first “Meet the Artists” event of 2015 on Saturday, January 17th, 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. The artist will be showing a variety of her work, including paintings not previously available at the Gallery. Live jazz, complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvre will be offered.
Jana Somach and her family have lived in Pinellas County for over 40 years. Always interested in art while growing up in the Netherlands, she went on to study metalsmithing and graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam with jewelry as her creative output at the time. Somach moved with her husband to the U.S. in 1972 and settled in Florida. After a period of time in which weaving was her medium of choice, she studied painting at the Dunedin Fine Arts Center.
Her enthusiastic embrace of the plein air (a French term meaning “open air”) process began a few years ago. Plein air painters situate themselves away from their studios, most often in outdoor settings, and capture the essence of what they see, complete with the natural light and shadows that occur.
“We are limited in the time we have to complete a painting, usually only about two hours, because of the movement of the sun and shadows,” explains Somach. She typically travels to plein air settings with a regular small group of women friends, often capturing Florida scenes close to water such as Honeymoon Island, the Tarpon Springs docks and Anclote River.
Somach’s plein air paintings are a recent addition to “& Gallery.” She will bring several additional plein air paintings to the “Meet the Artists” event, as well as some of her work in still life and portraiture.
