More about this year's Market from the Mitchell News-Journal:
The 13th annual Spruce Pine Potters Market is all set to take place from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, and Sunday, Oct. 13, in the Cross Street Building, 31 Cross St. in Spruce Pine. This annual event features more than 30 potters from Mitchell, Yancey and Avery counties, and this year the Market is inviting three guest potters.
Admission is free.
The Spruce Pine Potters Market is a unique opportunity to meet many of the diverse potters of the high-country region as well as to see the variety of their work in one location. The Market showcases the diversity of ceramics being made in Mitchell and Yancey counties. From table settings to display pieces and sculptures, the range of objects presented is just as wide as the styles represented.
All potters will be present at the event for conversation, discussion and general comradery. A lunch and refreshments provided by FRESH Wood Fired Pizza will be on sale each day.
Special to this year’s roster of participant potters are three invited artists: Kyle Carpenter, Ronan Peterson and Donna Polseno.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at email@example.com for more info.
