Tradition and Beyond

Ft. members from the San Diego Potter's Guild

The Japanese Friendship Garden presents five San Diego potters who have built their own distinctive styles and practices in continuing dialogue with the traditional ceramic arts of Japan. Throughout their careers, they have borrowed forms, techniques and glazes, and drawn inspiration from the characteristically Japanese embrace of accident and imperfection. Longtime friends and colleagues, between them they have spent two centuries working, studying and experimenting with the humble, changeable, frustrating and endlessly seductive medium that is clay.

The Flower Fields

Mar 1 - May 12, 2019

For more than sixty years, Mother Nature has transformed the rolling hills of North San Diego County into one of the most spectacular and coordinated displays of natural color and beauty anywhere in the world. The nearly fifty acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers that make up the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch in Carlsbad, California, are in bloom for approximately six to eight weeks each year - from early March through early May - literally bringing the famous fields back to life. This annual burst of color, which has become part of the area’s local heritage, also is one of nature’s official ways of announcing the arrival of spring here in Southern California.
