Behind the Scenes Pottery Crawl

This was so much fun last year I an so looking forward to another fun filled day, for a great cause!

Come out for good cause and Join me for The Behind the Scenes Pottery Crawl, 2nd annual Benefit for Northern Moore Family Resource Center, Saturday May 12th 10am to 5pm.

Come out for some great food, demonstrations and what sure to be a fun filled day! Spend a fun-filled Saturday meeting the artists, touring their studios, and admiring their creations. Come check out 14 of our favorite potteries in a self-guided car tour. Each pottery will have a unique culinary delight with wine pairing (beef tenderloin on rounds of French bread, shrimp served with remoulade and red sauces, open-faced pork sliders, an elegant almond torte, to name a few), and demonstrations focusing on different aspects of the craft – from shaping at the wheel, to glazing, to firing techniques. Or you can roll up your sleeves and make a pot yourself.
