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.
