The market will be open Thursday, Nov. 14 from 3-7 p.m.; Friday Nov. 15, Saturday Nov. 16, and Sunday Nov. 17 from 12-4 p.m.

The Potters Market is an annual event which exhibits work which is either handmade or wheel thrown with clay for sale. “We have 23 potters this year and 11 are either SC4 current students or alumni,” explained Celeste Skalnek.  

There are many different styles ranging from functional, to decorative and even crystalline or raku.

A portion of the sales from this event will benefit the artists and the SC4 arts programs. “In our first year, 2003, we sold just over $3000 in pottery. Last year’s total was over $12,000,” Skalnek said.
