The Main Gallery in Redwood City has one of the best spaces around: a century-old house with wood floors that creak pleasantly as you walk from room to room. Some of the windows have that thick old glass that looks ripply at the right angle. Next door in the 1874 Dielmann House is Alana’s Cafe, with lots of flowers.
It all made for a nice wander today, past Andrea Rosenman’s whimsical cups and saucers fashioned from colorful felt, ceramic teapots by Susan Wolf and many other pieces. It’s enjoyable to discover the shelves of arts and rooms of various sizes.
I stayed a while with Nina Koepcke’s ceramic piece “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” (pictured above), which took in the sun with many other ceramics in a greenhouse sort of room filled with windows.
