Usually I write about local events a few days before they are happening but this one needs a little notice. It is the Third Annual Clay Art and Fire pottery fest to be held in Mitchell Creek Park in Downtown Big Rapids on June 18th and 19th, 2011. This is a must do event open to the public and will include live demonstrations from over 15 nationally known premiere potters who will be traveling to Big Rapids from all over the United States. There is live music playing and the atmosphere is amazing. Instead of posting pics, I am going to share a couple links. First their FaceBook page: Clay, Art and Fire. Check out the photo pages. Some of the Grotesque Jugs take a little getting used to. When I first noticed one in Jack Batdorff's office I thought what the.... but since they have grown on me and this year I look to purchase one of my own. Here is the link to their actual web page: Clay, Art and Fire Webpage. Here you can find out more about the artists, scheduled events, music. Here is just a glimspe of what you can see.
Fine looking line up. See you there and thanks for reading.
