Pottery on the Hill - Washington D.C.

Pottery on the Hill at the Old Naval Hospital - Washington D.C.
We will be in Washington D.C. next weekend on October 26-28, 2012 for this first annual pottery selling event.

You can read about the potters that will be there and see their work at the Hill Center's website Pottery on the Hill.

This is the information from the Hill Center website about Pottery on the Hill.

"October 26 through October 28, fifteen nationally-recognized ceramic artists bring recently-fired, colorful and durable creations to Hill Center for show and sale.

If you haven’t discovered their pottery, this is your unique opportunity to talk with them about finding a place in your home for their quality dinner plates, mugs, platters, vases and pots. These are one-of-a-kind, shaped by hand and finished by fire in time for this intimate venue at Hill Center.

Admission is free for the public show and sale Saturday and Sunday, but first chance at purchase and one-on-one-time with the artists comes the evening before, on Friday, October 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at a reception party. Reserve $25 tickets online here.  Many in the Washington, D.C. region who over the years have traveled far to find these artists, will drive the short distance to be at Hill Center to purchase the plates, mugs, cookware and collectibles they have made a part of their lives.

The public show and sale continues that weekend with free admission both Saturday morning October 27 at 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday October 28 at noon until 4 p.m.

Louise Allison Cort, the Curator for Ceramics at the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery of Art and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, will deliver a free talk entitled “Pots and People” at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm on Saturday.
We recently asked her about how ceramics in the home remain a culturally-enriching experience with simple choices."
