Domain Home Accessories & Gallery is planning a reception to welcome visiting pottery artist Bari Precious and highlight a large cache of new work by the artist. This installment of Domain’s monthly “Meet the Artists” events will take place 6-10 pm Saturday, February 21, 2015, at 3129 Beach Blvd. S. in Gulfport. Complimentary wine, hors d’oeuvre and live jazz will be offered.
The colorful and functional pottery of Bari Precious has been a hit since it was first offered by Domain four years ago, the owners say. The Springfield, Missouri, artist produces a variety of stoneware pottery that is art with practical applications in the home. Her hand-painted designs and glazes display a sense of tribal, geometric or nature-inspired influences. The collection includes vases, pitchers. mugs, bowls, plates, platters and dishes that are specifically designed to be safe for use in ovens, microwaves and barbecues. Domain also offers copies of some of Bari’s favorite recipes, including baked brie, brownies, banana bread, honey-mustard chicken and baked fish. Domain is the only retailer offering her ceramics east of the Mississippi River.
Here is more information from Domain's press release:
Bari Precious was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia and became interested in working with clay from an early age, going on to study sculpture at the Vancouver School of Art. She left school to embark upon other adventures, including farming and communal life, and then travels through Europe, Asia and the Middle East during the 1970s. She nurtured her fascination with Iran by spending time there teaching art and English, and later returning to work with archeologists by building a kiln and reassembling excavated pottery. On return to the U.S., she raised her family for several years before reentering university studies and earning a B.F.A. in ceramics. Her studio, gardens and home in the Missouri countryside are comfortable spaces where visitors are welcome to stop, share tea and peruse her “Precious Pots.”
