During the family’s 2017 summer vacation, Julia Pozsgai visited Old Faithful Geyser in Yellowstone National Park. When Julia witnessed Old Faithful geyser erupting, she was smitten. The regularity and sheer energy of this geothermal natural wonder struck something deep in her. She returned to California and was determined to recapture the magic it sparked for her. She painted geysers, designed jewelry with geyser imagery, created mini-sculptures of geysers, included geysers on her sewn ukulele pillows, and applied the theme to her entry in the 2018 Sonoma Community Center’s Trashion Fashion by creating a “Geyser Gown”. Her design went on to tie for third place out of 42 entries. Made of over 400 recycled plastic bottles hand sewn onto a vintage gown along with a matching headpiece that expresses the spewing action of the water and steam of a geyser, this stunning design is worth seeing!
This past May, Julia had the opportunity to visit California’s “Old Faithful” geyser in Calistoga. She was delighted to know she could experience the same excitement about geysers right here within a 35 mile radius of her home base. Old Faithful Geyser of California has a long history with the healing waters for the Native American Wappo Indian Tribe and the following generations of people that utilized the heat as an energy source. Old Faithful Geyser of California is currently not used as an energy source but geysers in the North Bay actually meet the power needs of 5 counties and are one of the most reliable energy sources in California. That power and strength is most likely what Julia Pozsgai touched into.
The public has an opportunity to experience the geyser and see Julia Pozsgai’s geyser expressions at the Old Faithful Geyser of California in Calistoga, CA September 1st through September 30th. The geyser erupts every 15 to 35 minutes depending on the time of year, reaching from 20 to 80 feet in height with the nuances of weather, sunrises and sunsets creating interesting shapes, rainbows and sprays of delight. Old Faithful Geyser of California is open 7 days a week 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM. There is no cover charge for viewing the art show but the entrance fee into the park and geyser viewing is worth every penny for the chance to witness Old Faithful Geyser of California, along with the museum, gardens, bocce courts, animal farm, and picnic grounds. A “Meet the Artist” reception will be held Saturday, Sept 8th from 2 to 5 PM with some geyser themed refreshments. The art reception is free. During the art reception Old Faithful Geyser of California is offering a special entrance fee of $7 per person, with children under 12 free. Julia Pozsgai will be available to share about her experience of creating geyser themed art. Visit her website at: www.pansycreations.com. To learn more about the geyser, visit: www.oldfaithfulgeyser.com. Old Faithful Geyser of California is easy to find, just north of downtown Calistoga between Highway 29 and Highway 128 at 1299 Tubbs Lane.
Julia Pozsgai ties for 3rd place out of 42 entries at the 2018 Sonoma Community Center's Trashion Fashion! Her Geyser gown design was fashioned out of 500 recycled clear plastic bottles cut to form spirals. These were layered onto a long cream-colored vintage sheath by Joseph Magnin and sewn on with dental floss.
