What is a pop up shop? Pop-up retail, also known as pop-up store (pop-up shop in the UK, Australia and Ireland) or flash retailing, is a trend of opening short-term sales spaces that started in Los Angeles and now pop up all over the world. Redding Fashion Alliance is bringing this experiential shopping to downtown Redding. Venus d'Pyro was our first featured popup shop from February 2-March 2, 2018.

About the Designers:
Sandy Scott creates fused glass jewelry, accessories and home products influenced by Asian architecture and textiles from the 30's and 40's. She is constantly absorbing influences and ideas from the world around her. Once she gets an idea, she sketches a loose design and creates patterns. Using these patterns, she cuts and layers the glass to create individual components which are fused in a high temperature kiln before being assembled with silver or gold findings. She often embellishes these pieces with vintage beading.
Sandy is for the most part a self taught artist, with a definite love of diverse methods and materials. Her creative strength is innovation, to see fabric as glass, vegetation as metal sculpture, life as art. I am for the most part a self taught artist, with a definite love of diverse methods and materials. My creative strength I believe is innovation, to see fabric as glass, vegetation as metal sculpture, life as art. I enjoy expressing a single idea in a myriad of ways, just to make certain I have explored my options. Creativity is a gift we all possess and the more we use it, the more complete our experience of the world is. I hope you are all creating something today. Metal sculpture is next on my list. What's on yours?
