North Coast Mud Trail – 18 & 19 August 2018
12 vibrant pottery & ceramic studios in the Byron Shire will be open to the public for one weekend!
The Northern Rivers is a vibrant creative community that is fast becoming known as a major centre for Ceramic Arts. The region is a hub for traditional and contemporary ceramic artists and potters, some long standing locals, and a growing population of new talents. The diverse works crafted by these artisans are coveted by enthusiasts from all over the world, with pieces by many of the artists in galleries, retail outlets, restaurants, and private collections in America, Asia and Europe.
Once a year, as part of The Australian Ceramics Association’s Open Studios, these artists open their spaces to the public for one weekend only, giving the opportunity for visitors to see demonstrations, hear artists’ talks, participate in workshops, learn about their processes, and purchase ceramics directly from the artists themselves.
There will be thousands of beautiful pieces made with multiple methods and diverse finishes, as varied as the potters themselves. Whether you are looking for a fun piece of brightly coloured tableware, a decorative masterpiece, or a simple classic, perhaps a woodfired sculpture, or an alternatively fired gem, whatever your taste, there is a work of art perfect for everyone waiting to be discovered. Come along, have some fun, and pick up a piece of local treasure…
