Spotted SF / Mission / Playmountain East
Just discovered a wondrous collection of beautiful handcrafted goods (designed by Japanese and Japanese-influenced artists and makers) here in the city. And just in time before they wrap up their first of six exhibits. Playmountain in Tokyo is well-known among design enthusiasts for its revolving collections of simple and modern home accessories, and this year they’ve extended east of Japan to San Francisco (hence Playmountain East) to showcase in the Heath Ceramics Boiler Room. The ensemble includes works in wood, clay, glass, paper, metal and textiles. The current exhibit is open until March 19, then they will close and reopen on April 20 to debut the second collection. This is an exquisite gallery you’ll want to revisit throughout the year.
