Dirt-Glazed Dinnerware Calls Attention To San Francisco’s Skid Row [Pics]
Art enthusiasts encouraged to eat and drink from bowls and cups made of needle-infested soil.
Dirty dishware is one thing, but Ilana Crispi is an artist who has taken the meaning to a whole new level by using soil from the needle-infested neighborhood of San Francisco know as the Tenderloin to create a collection of bowls and dirt-glazed cups. The exhibit is called “Tenderloin Dirt Harvest” and offered people a chance to eat and drink from the dinnerware at San Francisco’s Ramon’s Tailor gallery on Thursday. The collection was created to challenge the stigma attached to the area, proving that something beautiful can be created from even the most unappealing beginnings.
