Hecho a Mano

Toys, cartoons and skateboard culture come together with finely-wrought craft in Show Funko Roasto, featuring ceramicist Will Rimel and jewelry-maker Zachery Lectenberg. For their first ever exhibition in Santa Fe, the two artists use imagery expressing youthful dissonance, energy, and color in ceramics and champlevé enamelwork. Both artists work at the intersection of craft and automation - interested in the question of accessibility but have a deep appreciation for handmade forms that can be out of reach financially for many.
