This will be a wonderful event which will affirm the continuing importance of North Carolina in shaping the
ceramic heritage of America.
To celebrate this event, there will be a series of simultaneous “viewing parties” in towns and cities across the state, with key patrons of the Pottery Center hosting these parties, inviting friends, pottery enthusiasts, and NCPC supporters, to view the broadcast and eat dessert.
Most of the Pottery Guilds around the state, all the way from the coast to the mountains, will also be hosting parties to benefit NCPC, inviting guild members and pottery lovers in their respective communities. It is a truly grassroots effort.
In addition, the Umstead Hotel in Cary has very kindly offered to host a Gala viewing party in Cary that night. The evening has been described as, “A big collective hug for all North Carolina potters and pottery lovers!”
Our goal for this fundraising campaign is to raise $100,000, with $50,000 for the Umstead event, and $50,000 from all the other statewide events combined. As an incentive, Mark Hewitt has offered to give the person who raises the most money at their viewing party (with the exception of the Umstead event), one of his fabulous garden planters!
This is a great opportunity for North Carolina potters and pottery lovers to come together and support the North Carolina Pottery Center, so please contact NCPC, or look at the list below, to find out exactly where you can attend one of these parties.
