Burning Man Comes to the East Bay: Oakland’s April Art Mumur saw more daylight, more families, and more fire. The piece featured above, entitled The Golden Mean, is the brain child of husband and wife team Jon Sarriugarte and Kyrsten Mate. Jon Sarriugarte is the owner of Form & Reform as well as co-owner of Kraftworks, a collaborative of Oakland’s finest industrial artists.
A giant iron fire snail, The Golden Mean first made its debut at Burning Man in 2008, and joins a menagerie of fire-breathing animal creations by Mr. Sarriugarte, whose pieces are featured regularly at in Oakland’s Art Murmur and frequently displayed during the summer months in front of Warehouse 416 on 26th Street.
