Fired Works - Macon GA

I'm on my way to Fired Works with a whole lot of pots.  You really should check out this show,  some really terrific potters are here.  Last year I left with a bunch of new pots from some of my favorite artists.

The 8th Annual Fired Works Regional Ceramics Exhibition and Sale will be held April 13-21, 2013 in the Historic Round Building in Central City Park. The 2013 exhibit will feature 70 artists from Georgia and the Southeast. Fired Works began as a local pottery show and has grown to become the largest exhibit of functional and sculptural pottery in the state of Georgia.

This year’s nine-day exhibit and sale includes special events such as Clay Workshops for Children & Teens, Clay in the Classroom workshops, Cocktails and Clay, Pickin’ & Pottery, artist talks and more. A Special Preview Party will be held Friday, April 12 with live music, food, and an exclusive chance to purchase work before the exhibit opens to the general public.

The mission of Fired Works is to provide a platform for artists and to promote the rich history of pottery in Central Georgia. People have made pottery along the banks of the Ocmulgee River for thousands of year and artists continue this tradition even today. In fact, the oldest piece of stamped pottery ever found in North America was found at the Ocmulgee National Monument in Macon.

Fired Works is a program of Macon Arts Alliance and is supported by numerous sponsors and community partners.
