OMG! It’s been almost a year since our last blog post… The EC artists have been busy, and yes, having fun!
Here’s what’s new…
When you want some EC art, but 18″x24″ is just a tad too much…
We’re upping our game… The EC will now be offering matted prints of artworks by selected EC artists, in addition to individual and boxed sets of note cards. Images, sizes, and prices to come.
2015 Holiday Artisan Fair
The EC artists will be selling prints and note cards, along with ceramic ornaments– letters and hearts– at the 2015 Holiday Artisan Fair. If you’re looking for a gift, be it for others or for yourself, come to the Merced Multicultural Arts Center at 645 W. Main Street on Friday, Dec 4th, 11am-6pm, and Saturday, Dec 5th, 10am-2:30pm.
Paper clay ceramics
In addition to the goods for sale in our booth, we will have more amazing ceramic creations on exhibit, which are also available for purchase. The EC artists have spent the last few months working in paper clay, and the results are beautiful. In the glass case on the 2nd floor landing– paper clay houses and buildings. In the glass case on the 3rd floor landing– paper clay bowls and vessels. We’ll have more details about EC art on exhibit next week… WE PROMISE!

This year, the EC artists’ ornaments offer a new way to personalize your holiday (or any-day) gift giving and decorating. Our 2014 ornaments go everywhere! On inside trees and outside trees, garland, gifts, and stockings… boxes, bags, hooks and bottles… chains, pins, collars, and key fobs. Personalize your holiday gifts this season, with handmade ceramic letters which can be used year-round.
The letters have been cut from slabs of firing clay and decorated by the artists of the Enrichment Center, with imprints and relief. They (the letters, not the artists!) were then fired to bisque in our kiln. The artists then spent two weeks painting the letters with glaze, before firing up the kiln again during the week of Thanksgiving. Continue reading
