Wildfire Ceramics Showcase A Celebration of Clay

The Clay Guild of the Cascades welcomes you to its annual showand sale in a new location November 4 (10am-5pm)and 5 (10am-4pm) at Westside Village Magnet School at Kingston Elementary. Because of the collapse of the gym at Highland Elementary during last winter’s snow, Central Oregon ceramic artists have relocated to nearby Kingston School.
This all clay showand sale features many uniqueand exciting art pieces for you to enjoy. The variety of ways to use clay to create art will amaze you. Artistic inspiration ranges from functional dishes for everyday use, to purely decorative items, sculptureand brilliant raku. Many ceramic pieces are thrown on the wheel, but others are hand built, hand painted, carvedand stamped.
Clay demonstrations occur throughout the two-day event for visitors to watch, as well as a children’s clay areaand daily raffles. More than 25 ceramic artists participate in this exciting annual showand sale.
