Mutual Stores Collective
Mutual Stores is a studio collective located in a pair of storefronts on Seminary Avenue in Oakland. Our mission is to expand the field of ceramics and to cultivate mutually supportive relationships with the beings, places, and materials we come into contact with as artists in an urban environment. The Mutual Artist Residency provides a platform for the research and development of material efficiency practices in ceramics. It is centered specifically around an oft-discarded byproduct of the ceramics field: the mixed-material sludge that collects in our studio’s closed-system clay waste recycling sink.
