Michiana Pottery Tour – September 23 & 24, 2017
The Michiana Pottery Tour includes more than 30 artists at six locations across northern Indiana and southwestern Michigan. The two day tour takes place on the final Saturday and Sunday of September every year. Click here or the image below to watch a video about the Michiana Pottery Tour.
We’re interested in promoting the Michiana region as a hub for contemporary ceramics. Michiana has been home to many clay artists for more than 4 decades. Its also a new home for many new and emerging ceramic talents. We’ve been building a legacy in clay for many years, and here’s a video to tell you about it. We hope you enjoy the region, the potters, and the beautiful countryside as much as we do.
Date and Time:
Saturday, September 23 from 10 AM thru 5 PM EST and Sunday, September 24 from 11 AM thru 4 PM EST.
