Conversations in Clay

The 2020 Spring Show and Sale


Due to the CoronaVirus/Covid-19 pandemic we must postpone our 2020 Spring Show.

We are looking to host the show during the summer and we will inform all of you when dates are set.

In the meantime, stay safe and well. We look forward to seeing you all in the summer.

Meet 32 fabulous clay artists and get to know the stories behind their wonderful work.  Tales of play, exploration, exasperation and ultimately triumph.  A lot goes into making beautiful works of art and delightful functional objects.  This wonderful venue with two unique settings, an 18th century farmhouse and a lovingly restored barn, offers a great opportunity to spend a relaxing afternoon as you stroll through dazzling displays and chat with the members of the Potters Guild.  In addition to great pots to see and purchase, this spring’s show will feature continuous demonstrations and an activity area where would-be artists both young and old can get their hands dirty and discover the joy of playing with clay.

Join the Potters Guild of New Jersey as we welcome spring and share how we have been keeping ourselves warm and busy during the long cold winter
