The event will take place at “& Gallery” (3129 Beach Blvd. South in Gulfport) on Saturday, November 15th, 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.  Both artists will be on hand to discuss their work and take questions from guests.  Live jazz music, complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvre will be offered.

Gulfport native Eric Folsom returned to his home town in 1975 after a period of self-education, followed by an apprenticeship in which he honed his creative skills in brazing and fabricating bronze and copper.  He has exhibited his work throughout the East Coast.  His work includes both decorative and functional pieces, including home décor, serve ware and boxes, which have been displayed and sold at Domain for many years.  Most recently, his expanding line of distinctive jewelry has become a best seller.

Daniel “Abraham” Flores is a Florida native with a fascination for the outdoors, where his encounters with sun, sand, fish, birds and other animals inspire much of the subject matter for his art.  The lore of the sea also inspires works depicting whimsical mermaids.  Most of his pieces are carved and sculpted on recycled wood, painted, and then thickly layered with protective lacquered finishes.  His art works are often mistaken for polished ceramics due to their texture and sheen.  In the last year he has also begun to offer furniture pieces, especially tables with tops displaying his signature hand-carved and lacquered look.  Since his introduction to Domain visitors two years ago, he has developed a significant number of local collectors.

Who Has The Best Greeting Cards in Tampa Bay? We Do!

creative loafing best of the bay 2014

We are very proud and pleased that we have been chosen as a BEST OF THE BAY 2014 winner by Creative Loafing. They singled us out in the category of “Best Greeting Cards!” Here’s what they had to say:

“Word has it that a very well-known local theater director visits this eclectic Gulfport shop before every opening night to buy thank-you cards for his cast. Makes sense – Domain’s well-chosen assortment of cards is ideal for those whose hallmark is individuality (as opposed to those who buy nothing but Hallmark!). The cards range from witty to pretty to downright odd – we particularly like Susan Mrosek’s Pondering Pool line – and so varied that you’re bound to find something that’s just right whether you’re assuaging a nervous actor, wooing a new love, or simply sharing deep thoughts.”

Thank you very much, Creative Loafing Tampa Bay!

Congratulations also to other Gulfport businesses that won Best of the Bay awards this year: Little Tommie’s Tiki (Best Non-BBQ Place Pulled Pork); Salty’s (Best Day Drinking); and Stella’s Deli (Best Breakfast Spot/Community Center).

2nd anniversary

Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will host a reception and one-night-only Anniversary Sale to celebrate the two-year anniversary of its “& Gallery” space.  The event will take place at Domain Home Accessories & Gallery (3129 Beach Blvd. South in Gulfport) on Saturday, September 20th from 6 to 10 p.m.  Complimentary beverages and hors d’oeuvre will be offered during the sale and celebration, and jazz saxophonist Henry Ashwood will entertain visitors.

For over 13 years, Domain Home Accessories has offered a unique assortment of merchandise, becoming a treasured retailer in the heart of Gulfport’s Waterfront Arts District.  The keystone of this small, independent business has always been original art work, with an emphasis on functional art for the home.  Housed in its small, colorful quarters are floor to ceiling displays of home décor, lamps and lighting, jewelry, kitchen ware and entertainment accessories, pottery, glassware, decorative hardware, candles, bath and body products, gifts, greeting cards and much more.  The shop is well-known as a supporter of local art and artists, as well as the “go-to” location for a selection of unique items and gifts unavailable elsewhere.

In September 2012, Domain Home Accessories acquired the adjacent retail space, creating a combined business now named “Domain Home Accessories & Gallery.”  The remodeled two-year-old space serves as one of Gulfport’s finest art galleries, representing a large number of local and regional artists.  Monthly “Meet the Artists” events at “& Gallery” have become a popular gathering for locals and visitors to mingle, meet local and visiting artists, and browse the latest offerings of the shop and gallery.

On the occasion of its second anniversary, “& Gallery” will offer its first ever Annual Anniversary Sale.  Selected art works by over 30 artists on display in the Gallery will be offered at sale prices ranging from 10% to 75% off.  Art in a wide variety of media will be available during the sale, including paintings, prints, drawings, wood, glass, pottery, metal, fiber, basketry, photography, jewelry, paper, mosaics and mixed media.  Several of the artists who exhibit their work at Domain will be present during portions of the evening.  These and other artists will have work available at Anniversary Sale prices for one night only: Charles Albert, Diane Bragg, Gary Clark, Kristine Daley, Mike Darras, Kimberly Dawn, Doug D’souza, Daniel “Abraham” Flores, Cheryl Grogan, Andy Hamilton, Becky Jamin, Martha Johnson, Larry Kingsley, Dan MacCosbe, Katherine Marra, Gary Mellenbruch, John “The Hairy Potter” Moore, Owen Pach, Bari Precious, Valerie Scott, David Sherer, John Shevlin, Frank Strunk III, Kevin Webb and Peggy Wollins.

Unveiled: Brand New Bari Precious Pottery!

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.
