Bicycle-Themed Pottery

I’ve been making some bicycle-themed pottery lately. This weekend I’ll be selling an entire dinnerware set (5pcs each for 4 placesettings) at a fundraiser for the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild. The set is priced at $400.

For those who don’t know, MCG offers free after-school art classes for high-school students. We keep kids off the streets, teach them art, and sometimes help them get into college.

Please visit http://www.manchesterguild.org for more information on the event, or visit http://www.guerreroceramics.com for more information on the work itself.

To elaborate just a bit… Each piece is a collage of sorts featuring vintage bicycle images and Victorian-era etchings. The images below are representative, but not the actual pieces in the set.

Holy cow, those are awesome. I wish I knew someone who is getting married. Are you only selling complete sets?

Have you advertised those nationally in any way? I’ll bet there are people in bigger markets like New York, or Portland who would snap these up like lightning.

+1 on JG coffee mugs. And other stuff. Thanks in large part to him, much of my family received locally produced crafts as Christmas gifts.

Jeff, this stuff is really awesome. Do you have a gallery where you sell your work?

Joe, are you proposing? I accept. But who gets the china if we divorce?

BTW, for those who aren’t familiar with handmade pottery, notice how well Jeff has shaped the bottom of that bowl, and that he photographed it to prove it. That’s a detail that too many artisans omit because the public doesn’t appreciate it.

Buy two sets, then you’re covered.

Do you sell at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts shop? If not, you probably should. We’re having our Shop screening coming up on April 24:

Here’s an admittedly poor photo of one of the actual pieces from the set…

Have just obtained a couple of bowls from UrbanJeff I can tell you he is right when he says this stuff looks even better in person than it does in the photos. They are beautiful!

For anyone who’s interested, the set did not sell as a whole, and for a limited time, the pieces are being offered individually (at a reduced price, at that).

The Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild’s gallery is open to the public weekdays from 9-5. Just sign in at the front desk and tell them you’re interested in buying some art. I personally have nothing to do with art sales, so you’ll probably need to speak with Dave Deily.

All proceeds benefit the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild.

Here’s a sneak peak at the mugs I’ll be donating to Bike-PGH for this summer’s silent auction.

these are sweet!

so if I cant get to Manchester Craftmans’ Guild on the weekdays, the only other option to get some of these mugs is to bid at the silent auction?
