One of the longest running pottery festivals in this region is on Saturday, May 11th, 2013 from 10 am - 4pm.
The Carolina Clay Matters Pottery Guild will gather on the grounds of McAlpine Business Park at 8300 Monroe Rd, the charming site of an old dairy farm and small orchard.
Featuring more than 45 clay artists from both of the Carolinas, the wares are diverse in form and function. Students to internationally known clay artists will be featured. Expect a variety of finishes and colors. Styles will range from traditional full-bellied casseroles and comforting coffee mugs, to whimsical clay houses and exotic vases. Meet the makers and learn how they create their wares.
The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available on the grounds at no charge.
Carolina ClayMatters is a nonprofit organization of regional clay artists, which provides a forum for the exchange of creative ideas and information between potters and the local community.
