(2012) John & Pam Toki

John Toki is a respected studio artist and adjunct professor at the California College of the Arts (CCA) in Oakland, Toki is also the president and owner of Leslie Ceramic Supply Company in Berkeley, which his parents founded fifty years ago, and the co - author of several notable books on ceramic sculpture. Toki's large-scale sculptures in clay and porcelain possess a timeless quality, inspired from forms found in nature (mountains, water, snow, sky) and suggest archaeological elements, yet they have a unique freshness in their technical complexity and resulting visual appeal. His work has been shown in the US, the Netherlands and Japan. He has completed public commissions and installations in Richmond, Berkeley, Sacramento, San Francisco, Oakland, and Cincinnati.

Pamela Stefl Toki creates her unique prints from a wet clay slab technique called clay monoprinting. This process provides her with the time to work the clay surface for hours through which she can freely implement her ideas. Each print combines Stefl Toki's imagination with imagery and designs which occasionally include colors from previous prints as the layers build with each successive print.
