Whistle Stop Clay Works (WSCW) is hosting its first annual Pottery Affaire on Saturday, June 9th from 11am to 4pm. The show features unique, hand-crafted functional and sculptural pottery by local artisans. The show is designed to be an intimate gathering, which allows people to engage and interact with artists in an authentic and personal way. The show, happening by the beautiful O’Bannon Creek, highlights a wide variety of ceramic artists, each expressing themselves differently through their work. In addition, various artists will be demonstrating how they create their works of art using a variety of hand building techniques or the potters wheel. There will even be a vintage kick wheel available, so the public can try their hand making a pot.
“This is an opportunity to support local artists and craftspeople and to browse truly unique works of art. You can find items here that are not available anywhere else. In addition, artists will be on hand to answer questions and can even take special orders,” says potter and WSCW co-owner Tim O’Grady.
Pottery Affaire is Saturday, June 9th from 11am to 4pm at 119 Harrison Avenue, just one block north of West Loveland Avenue. For more information call (513) 683-2529 or visit www.whistlestopclayworks.com.
