DESCRIPTION

Come celebrate the opening of our newest exhibition, MENAGERIE, with a special animal-themed trunk show!

San Diego artist Sue Bakley has worked in fiber arts and porcelain sculpture for the past decade. With a background in art and fashion design, her works are embellished using a collection of materials gathered on travels both domestic and abroad.

Sue’s wall hangings begin with intricate sculpting in porcelain clay. Once fired, her animals are then “dressed” with a variety of colorful inks, beads, ribbons, wires, and other decorative elements. Through this process, each creature happily takes on its own distinctive personality and spirit.

Her unique purse line is fashioned from a whimsical, canine-themed fabric. The addition of ribbons, beads, and buttons enhance each bag, while a pop of colorful beads on the straps transform them into their own special pieces of jewelry.  

Location: The Collectors' Gallery, Balboa Park
