Glazed Over 

Wednesday, Dec 7 2011
Hang out with a barn owl. Learn ceramics. Create something in a woodshop. Plant a seedling in a greenhouse. Watch a movie in a 188-seat theater. All in the same building. And you don’t have to travel far. The Randall Museum, tucked in at the base of the Corona Heights Park, atop a hill in the Castro, hosts a Ceramic Studio Holiday Open House and Pottery Sale to showcase its charming studio space and handmade ceramic items. Created to bring children closer to nature, the museum takes pride in offering these rare opportunities to kids and their families. Adults, don’t get jealous, there’s room for you too. In fact, we were happier than children when we got to stand a foot away from a rescued hawk. The event has handmade items for sale, introduces the museum’s new teachers, and provides information on upcoming public ceramic classes. The ceramic studio offers electric as well as kick wheels, and all work is bisque-fired in the new electric kiln. There’s also a lapidary workshop — whatever that is.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
