Pottery on the Hill returns again for another great year of ceramics! This year, we welcome ten new potters to our Pottery on the Hill family: Christina Bendo, Danielle Carelock, Guillermo Cuéllar, Andrea Denniston, Seth Gutovsky, Matt Kelleher, Shoko Teruyama, Doug Peltzman, David Young, and Junko Young, while welcoming back so many friends from previous shows.

This page details the calendar for the weekend and allows you to purchase tickets for Friday’s reception and reserve free tickets for the weekend. Click HERE to be redirected to the list of potters for this year.

Pottery on the Hill is a weekend celebrating functional pottery (that which can be regularly used, such as dinnerware, drinkware, vases, platters, and more) featuring top ceramic artists from across the country. Avid ceramics fans will love the chance to talk with the potters in a casual, fun environment and continue to grow their collections. For those who might just love the pottery, this is a great opportunity to get a jumpstart on shopping for the holidays, giving the special people in your life a gift as unique and one-of-a-kind as they are.

Pottery on the Hill is curated by potter Dan Finnegan who will be selling his work both in person and online for the show.
