While Tangletown’s Hiroki (2224 N. 56th St.) is known for their delectable specialty desserts, here’s one more reason to tempt you to visit their bakery: Wallyhood reader Abigail let us know about a unique sculpture exhibit by artist Kat Taylor, currently featured at the shop through the end of May. Three sculptures of women, including the piece in the photo on the right, are prominently featured in the shop alongside the eastern-facing windows, that Abigail described as “peaceful and powerful”, and I couldn’t agree more.
The pieces are part of Taylor’s “Journey of the Heart” collection, each with their own thoughtful expression and rich textures. A little further down the eastern wall, there are also framed photographs of more pieces from Taylor.
From Taylor’s website:
I have been working in clay for about twenty years. In that time, my work has evolved from raku-fired slab structures into the current three-dimensional figures, fired multiple times that you see on my website.
My work in clay both expresses and informs my own nature and way of looking at the world—as a woman, a student of ancient religions and mysticism, a lover of Earth, a mother, a Southerner, an explorer of human depths.
Hiroki is open Wednesday through Friday from 11:30 am to 9:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.
Thanks for the tip, Abigail!
