Meet over 60 of the best ceramic artists from North Carolina at the 14th annual Potters Market Invitational for a one-day sale showcasing the breadth and depth of work by makers in what has become known as the Pottery State, including Seagrove, the NC mountains, the Piedmont and Catawba Valley.
This is a rare opportunity to see great works in one place, meeting the makers and learning about the processes used to create these gorgeous pieces.
