The Assistance League of Pasadena continues its featured artist program at its Craft Fair Gift Shop in Pasadena. The only Pasadena philanthropic gift store for senior handcrafted items, Craft Fair features new artists every few months. For September and October, Craft Fair has selected a potter and a jeweler.

Richard Ewell, by day a JPL engineer and in his spare time a potter, has been creating amazing clay vessels for nearly 40 years. A native California, and an Altadena resident, he and his wife met making pottery and they will soon celebrate their 37th wedding anniversary.

Joan Gamberg, a San Marino resident, came to jewelry as a way to make her art more accessible. She started life as a painter and potter but loved the idea of taking the beautiful nuances she put into pottery into something sculptural that could be worn.

Craft Fair features a full line of gift and household items lovingly handcrafted by seniors and is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 820 E. California Boulevard in Pasadena. Craft Faire’s Holiday Faire will also be held on Saturday, December 7, 2019. Free parking available in the rear of the property. Come browse the featured artists’ work as well as baby clothes, children’s toys, household items, women’s accessories and much, much more.
