Spark

Elevating the Everyday

Meet artists who are creating art out of items found around the home. Spark starts off with a visit with woodworker Garry Knox Bennett, known outlandish and often humorous furniture designs, at his Oakland.

Then we catch up with ceramic artist Richard Shaw as he finishes teaching a semester at UC Berkeley and begins to work feverishly on a new set of work destined for unveiling at the Braunstein/Quay Gallery in San Francisco.

Next, watch mosaic artist Laurel True transform one small corner of her West Oakland neighborhood with her brilliantly colored designs.
