Pottery Invitational 2017

Date: May 5, 2017 - May 7, 2017

The Worcester Center for Crafts Pottery Invitational is a nationally recognized, 2½ -day exhibit that brings pottery to the people.

Juried by Todd Wahlstrom and Aysha Peltz, the Invitational provides an opportunity for everyone from pottery aficionados to the casually interested to meet 20 American ceramic artists standing in the gallery next to a display of their work. Just like daylight savings time, the Pottery Invitational illuminates.

See a shape that you find enchanting. Ask the potter how the shape was made. Fall in love with a particular decoration on a pot. Tell the potter and learn the intricacies of their craft. At the Pottery Invitational, best of all, everything on view is for sale. During the Invitational, you can enjoy a weekend of programs that include opportunities to see the Center’s cutting edge ceramics studio, watch ceramic artists demonstrate different techniques, and see experts in a variety of fields demonstrate how easy and enriching it is to use quality, handmade pottery in everyday life.
