The Global Day of Clay

Wednesday November 8th

Powered by you, #Global Day of Clay is the first truly worldwide celebration of ceramics in all its forms, connecting professional ceramicists, artists, academics and everyday ceramics lovers everywhere to explore new ideas, innovations and works that are shaping the future of the art form.

2017 is the inaugural year of this event and ArtisTree is delighted to be a part of it.  We are excited to share our studio and let people see what they can do with a pound of clay.

Continuing our celebration of clay, ArtisTree will be at the Norman Williams Public Library to offer a free program for kids 1st grade and up.

Kids will get a pound of clay and will be free to explore what they can make using their hands.

We are fortunate to live in an area where there is an abundance of ceramic artists and potteries to investigate.
