The Spruce Pine Potters Market will return to Spruce Pine’s historic Cross Street Commerce Center in downtown Spruce Pine, NC on Saturday and Sunday October 9th & 10th, 2021 from 10am–5pm.
Noted for its small scale and intimate layout, this event offers visitors an opportunity to view a variety of pottery work as well as the chance to meet and converse with each maker. “Its a very friendly show, lots of lovely work and a chance to shop a wide variety of pottery,” noted one past-years visitor.
The Spruce Pine Potters Market was designed and built by a group of Mitchell County, NC potters as a collaborative venture. Currently the members of the Spruce Pine Potters Market work together on all phases of the show, from mamagement, promotion, display set-up and all of the many particulars of a very successful annual event. “The Market is unique because of the extraordinary quality of the work produced by its members”, says Spruce Pone Potters Market member Jenny Lou Sherburne. “Individually, the participating artists are some of the finest craftsmen in the country. Collectively, they bring their high standards, imagination and camaraderie together to produce a really outstanding show.”
This year’s participating Potters Market members includes: Stanley Mace Andersen, Terry Gess, Ken & Galen Sedberry , Michael & Ruth Rutkowsky, Cynthia Bringle, Pam Brewer, Gertrude Graham Smith, Nicholas & Lisa Joerling, Susan Feagin, Shaunna Lyons, Liz Zlot Summerfield, Teresa Pietsch, Linda McFarling, Shane Mickey, Melisa Cadell, David Ross, Michael Hunt & Naomi Dalglish, Courtney Martin, Joy Tanner, Jenny Lou Sherburne.
In addition, this year’s show will include visiting artists Lynne Hobaica & Rickie Barnett, Jason Hartsoe, and Reiko Miyagi.
While admission to the Potters Market is free, all visitors are encouraged to join the potters in supporting a selected local non-profit organization. This year, several participating potters have donated pottery door prizes for this raffle.
