Good Denim + Good Talent + Good Drink Equals a Damn Good Party
It’s that time of year when we want to party our butts off with our friends. This year, we don’t just want to party, we want to show you what we’ve got. What you ask? New fall/holiday arrivals, including our/your favorite denim brands, as well as a trio of artists showcasing their fine crafts. We will be serving hot mulled cider, ice cold beer (why not?), and good company.
Our featured artists will include: Crooked 8 Chainstitch Embroidery, Ende Collective jewelry, and Satchel Rye ceramics. We are pleased to have such a talented group joining us for a day of festive cheer.
Crooked 8 Chainstitch Embroidery
Building on his craft as a tailor and designer, Sam Hart has developed mad skills with the use of his newly acquired chain stitch machine. Sam has been a part of the San Francisco apparel community for the past 8 years, engaged in retail management, apparel production, and tailoring. Sam’s talent was most recently plied at the Levi’s Flagship store in San Francisco.
It all started with the name Ende, one of the very first female artists to sign her artwork in the 10th Century. How marvelous to be the first of any kind in a world of manys. This concept of firsts and onlys is provoking as it can be translated into many things: moments, people, achievements, experience, etc. And yet, it is our desire to remember and recollect the ephemeral because it inspires us as a collective.
Ende Collective represents the human desire to somehow articulate our individual being and experience through process and tangible materials. To create, if only to be remembered. To build, if only to reshape the world around us in hopes that it may perpetuate the inspiration.
Art as unique extensions of one's self is the unspoken language of connection. I aim to explore this subtle communication through clean aesthetics, modern design and structure, and a conviction for achieving the perfect expression through object and form.
Satchel Rye Ceramics
Linh has dabbled in ceramics through the years, but it wasn’t until a pivotal class at the Hana Arts Center on Maui in 2014, that she was fully captivated by the process of ceramics. In a past profession she was a chef, so the transition into the pottery world was a natural one - both require practice, dedication, and the development of hand dexterity and muscle memory. They both demand that you follow certain fundamentals and foundations of technique, but within those boundaries there is absolute creative freedom. As with cooking, Linh draws inspiration from nature; allowing organic shapes and movement to be the focus, as well as the Japanese idea of wabi-sabi (there is beauty in the imperfect and transient).
