In the shadow of Alta Bates, a quiet neat street. And lots of ceramic animals. Dogs and cats and turtles and most of all, penguins.
More murals! My 11th post on murals. Who knew? Great new murals and – best of all – three photos sent by Quirky Berkeley readers. Who knew?
I contemplate the beauty of something ephemeral, a small quirky world on Amador. It went away. And then came back.
A bold post – two photographs depicting perfect quirk. Lovely depictions of Snoopy and the Red Baron on Hillcrest in the Uplands.
In 1998, Rob Garross bought and moved a Southern Pacific caboose to his driveway on Fifth Street. A caboose! Ultimately American. Ultimately romantic. Ultimately quirky.
A fantastic mishmash of sculpture and colors and signs and lights on Hillegass. With a fantastic backstory that I know nothing about. Quirky Berkeley Nation – rise to the challenge! Tell me the story!
For two years, Tad Dellinger gathered the detritus of university life and created a stunning Art Wall on a chain link fence in an alley behind Euclid. It was here but now is gone, remembered here.
On a quiet south side street just above San Pablo Avenue, an intricate mural winds its way around the front and side of a house, a project by Stefen and home owner Riley celebrating fairies and California native plant.
Her house is almost in Berkeley, but it is all the way quirky. Bright bright flowers. Architectural features. Bronze and ceramic sculpture. Exceptional.
Buldan Seka’s bright, giant ceramic freaks on Spruce puzzle and amuse. Her vivid imagination plus 50 years of work = a huge collection of over-sized ceramic pieces. A redo of an early post.
