Christine's art training began in illustrating and advertising design in Southern California. She later took up ceramics and operated a small studio for several years teaching wheel and casting techniques. After moving to the Mendocino coast in the mid 1970's, Christine began studying eastern papermaking and participated in a papermakers' guild for a number of years. She uses primarily Kozo and Gampi fibers to make Japanese-style waterleaf papers that she uses to make her kites.


Robert has recently developed his craft skills in ceramics. He has been studying ceramics with Bob Zvolensky and Marlene Placido at College of the Redwoods. Robert and Christine built their own raku kiln in 2002 and are enjoying the exciting results of that firing technique.

Christine has been busy with ceramics and cement garden basins. Christine's work may be seen at the Mendocino Art Center, The Prentice Gallery in Fort Bragg and Portico in Modesto. Robert's ceramics may be seen at The Prentice Gallery. The studio is usually open on the weekends by appointment. Please feel welcome to give the Schomer's a call and come for a visit.


The Schomer's presently live north of Fort Bragg with a couple of cats, a few chickens, a koi pond, and a large garden.


We are always glad to discuss commissioned work.

Skoshi studios includes paper making, printing arts, painting, kite making, cement garden art and ceramics, including wheel and hand-built ceramics in both stoneware and Raku.


Robert and Christine are now working in ceramics, producing wheel and hand-built ceramics in both stoneware and Raku.

Visitors are welcome to the studio by appointment.
