FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FALL POTTERY SHOW TO BE HELD AT HCC

What has 20 wheels and will be on the Haywood Community College campus October 15 through 17, 2004? The answer is the potters who will be participating in a fall pottery show and sale titled "Celebrating Clay, The Potters of Haywood." This invitational show will include potters of Haywood County and graduates of the HCC Professional Crafts Clay Program. This showcase of artisans will be hosted in the Student Center of HCC. The celebration begins with an opening reception on Friday, October 15, from 6 to 9 p.m. and will continue on Saturday, October 16 and Sunday, October 17 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. The show will offer a relaxed atmosphere in which to browse and select work from both established potters and some of WNC’s emerging artists.

Residents and visitors of Haywood County will be treated to a wide variety of functional and decorative clay created by local talent. Whether looking for a personal coffee mug, a casserole for a wedding gift, a lamp to enhance a family room, or a one-of-a-kind piece to grace a wall or the garden, one will be able to choose from work that spans traditional to contemporary.
