The 75 members of the Boulder Potters’ Guild—ceramic artists, sculptors, jewelry designers, and creators of handmade objets d’arts of all kinds—are preparing to exhibit and sell their finest pieces at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in May. This will be a must-see display and sale for art enthusiasts, collectors and gift-buyers alike.
This year’s sale will include handmade planters and garden decorations, along with other precious items appropriate as Mother’s Day gifts. Several new artists who have recently joined the Guild will be showing for the first time at this sale.
Pottery Demonstrations Daily
Artists will be present throughout the four days to meet the public, demonstrate the art of throwing clay on the wheel, and answer questions about their creative process.
At each day’s close, one name will be chosen from the day’s attendees to win a uniquely beautiful piece from one of the artists.
About The Boulder Potters’ Guild
The Boulder Potters’ Guild is a non-profit cooperative founded in 1969 for the purpose of promoting clay arts. We have 70+ members and apprentices who work with clay in a variety of ways from the functional to the sculptural. The Guild’s goal is to provide a vibrant facility where members can come together to grow as artists and students can learn to work with clay. The studio provides members the facilities to work together and individually to make, glaze, and fire our work. The Guild offers classes for all levels of students and holds workshops with nationally and internationally known potters. Twice a year, in May and November, Guild artists exhibit and sell their work at the Boulder County Fairgrounds.
The Guild is an all-volunteer organization financed by member dues, proceeds from sales, workshops, and classes, plus grants. It is a Tier III Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) organization. Members are also encouraged to share their skills with the community and to donate their artwork to various fundraising events.
