10th Annual Orlando Pottery Festival & Holiday Arts Market
November 28 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Save the Date! The Orlando Pottery Festival celebrates its 10th annual festival and holiday arts market this Thanksgiving weekend—Saturday, November 28, 9 am to 5 pm, and Sunday, November 29, 12 to 4 pm—at the Florida Army National Guard in Orlando.
Meet about 40 talented local artists, including highly regarded professional potters who exhibit in galleries and juried art festivals throughout the South; mid-career artists whose distinctive designs and signature items are fast becoming contemporary collectibles; longtime “hobby potters” who are channeling their creativity while mastering their craft in local pottery studios; and younger and emerging ceramic artists, several of whom are selling to the public for the first time.
Shop the diverse range of these artists’ original functional and decorative work, such as handmade everyday dishware, elegant ceramic jewelry, sculptural and figurative work inspired by Florida’s flora and fauna, whimsical and practical home and garden decor, and much more—all created on the pottery wheel or using hand-built and slip-cast techniques.
Returning visitors know that the Orlando Pottery Festival’s twice-annual events—the two-day Thanksgiving weekend holiday festival and the one-day spring festival on Mother’s Day eve—are the best way to get “first dibs” on the most recent work from favorite local potters, and to meet the new artist vendors added to each festival. The Orlando Pottery Festival’s growth and diversity of artistic work makes for events that reflect the vibrancy and diversity of handmade ceramics.
The Orlando Pottery Festival & Holiday Arts Market is a family-friendly event for all ages; free admission, free parking. For more information about the Orlando Pottery Festival, please visit www.orlandopotteryfestival.org.
