14th Annual Mint Museum Potters Market Invitational

September 8th, 2018 marks the 14th year for the Mint Museum Potters Market Invitational!

This year I was fortunate to be invited back for this terrific show and I will be showcasing new works and a new booth make-over! I’ve been working feverishly to bring my best pieces for everyone to enjoy and I hope you will mark your calendar for this exciting show.

The Potters Market Invitational is a one-day ceramics sale on the lawn of the Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC featuring functional, decorative, and sculptural ceramic works. The Potters Market is presented by the Delhom Service League, the ceramics affiliate of the Mint Museum, whose mission includes the promotion of the ceramic arts. The goal of the show is to showcase top ceramic artists, to help those artists in selling their work, and to raise funds to support the Delhom’s educational programming and the Mint’s ceramics collections.

This year’s show features 66 potters from across North Carolina who were invited to participate because they are among the top working ceramic artists in the state.

This year’s show has expanded it’s tents to accommodate the largest show ever! There will be LIVE demonstrations of both wheel-thrown and hand-built pottery going on throughout the day. For information on the schedule, the artists, and the type of work they will be demonstrating, click here.

The festivities will include a raffle – purchase a chance to win special prizes, live bluegrass music from Arnold Clayton and The Roustabouts, Delectables by Holly will return for their 14th year providing delicious lunches and snacks for purchase, and NEW for 2018, a Beer Garden! Take a break from shopping to enjoy a cold beverage and music.

I hope to see you there!
