Just to give a sense of this space you must also know how wonderfully close to the Golden Gate Park I am. Modern Relics is only a block north from the De Young and the Academy of Science museums. These are two of the world’s most amazing places to visit, for reasons innumerable. They are positioned just next to the beautiful Arboretum and the Japanese Tea Garden, stunning beauty at every intersection throughout this entire region.
There is a redwood forest grove that is just north west of the De Young and south from where my shop is. I take my dog, Jack, to this park every day, at least once or twice depending on my schedule. He’s a very lucky dog. He is also squirrel crazy and so this is paradise for him.
The studio is a loft floating above my gallery with windows facing a beautiful garden belonging to one of my best friends. I feel so blessed every single time I walk through the door to my shop. It is my own little Shangri-La. This environment is peaceful yet inspiring to be in. I am surrounded by the things that most insight passion in me. Old books, sculpture, ceramic art, nature, antique photos, shells, bones, beetles, nests. Really, there are just too many oddments and treasures to name them all.
The other aspect of my studio life that I have come to love is that some of my neighbors have become friends and visit me and jack on a regular basis. People will drop in to see what I am working on they’ll stay for a cup of tea, and we let our dogs play if they have one. Modern Relics is very dog friendly and that’s an understatement.
If you are ever in the city of San Francisco please make sure you stop in and get the real studio tour. Then you can carry on to the museums for a visit that will remain in your memories forever.
