The Comox Valley Potters Club Holiday Show and Sales:

With the holiday season fast approaching, this is a great time to join us and find that perfect gift for a family member or friend. Or, find a special mug for yourself, one that fits so perfectly in your hand it will make you smile every time you use it!A wide variety of potters will be participating in both events, and their wares are equally diverse. From casserole dishes, spoons, mugs, and bowls, to sculpture and decorative art pieces, whether you’re looking for something practical or something whimsical (or both) they have you covered. The only danger is finding that perfect piece you didn’t know you couldn’t live without.Feel free to come by and just take a look. We look forward to seeing you there.

New to the Comox Valley, and recently signing on as club treasurer, Barbara Sedun is excited to see everyone’s work in person: “I most recently lived in Vancouver‘s West End and made pottery through local community centres. It was a remarkable environment to share a studio with both students and over 60 club members. We brainstormed, created  glazes, and were excited for one another’s successes, and we commiserated when we had failures. There is nothing like that in the Comox Valley and it’s my personal dream to facilitate a communal studio school in the area. But in the meantime I look forward to participating in my first two sales with the club, where I’ll probably buy too much pottery myself!”The Comox Valley  Potters Club (CVPC) is a collection of over 60 potters from as far north as Campbell River and as far south as Nanaimo and all parts in between. The club works to foster opportunities among those who work in, or are interested in, the ceramic arts. The club consists of those new to pottery, hobbyists and professional potters. If you would like to find out more about the club we can be reached through our website at https://www.comoxvalleypotters.ca.
