AD 304B  Tumblr Assignment #1 California Funk Ceramic Artists

The following 3 posts are the ceramic figurines by the ceramist/painter Maija Peeples-Bright (formerly Zack).  I have chosen Maija Peeples-Bright as my California Funk Ceramic Artist because of her colorful and playful attitude toward her art.  Her paintings and ceramic pieces are funny, lively and full of colors to show her happy thoughts about the life.  

A native of Latvia, she was born in 1942. Her family immigrated to northern California.  She was trained at UC-Davis during the 60’s era of “California Funk Ceramics movement” under Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Arneson, Roy De Forest and William T. Wiley who created the hotbed of funk movement at UC-Davis.  She lives in Eldorado Hills.
