The Western New York Pottery Festival is a juried, clay exclusive show that consists of local and national professional artists. The focus is not only for artists to set up and sell their work but to interact with and educate the public by hosting firing, throwing, hand building and other demonstrations by the festival artists. There will also be a Clay Olympics competition taking place on the Sunday of the festival. There will be kiln openings, raffles, a silent auction fundraiser, food vendors, live music and activities for kids of all ages. The festival takes place at Studio Sales Pottery in Avon, NY.
A Clay Olympics competition will be taking place both Saturday and Sunday of the festival. Vendors will compete for prizes with 5lbs on the wheel to throw the tallest cylinder and the widest bowl followed by a blindfolded and a handle pulling competition. The competitors will have 5 minutes to complete each task. The games will start at 10:30 and will go on until 4:00 each day. This is a fun and energized event for both the potters and the spectators! Come out and heckle you favorite potter!
