Potters, artists to sell wares at annual show
Professional potters and artists from Fairfield County will be on hand to show off their work for the fifth year, beginning today.
The Connecticut Clay Artists, a group of 11 professionals, will be at the Jewish Community Center of Sherman all weekend. Their work includes wheel-thrown and sculpted ceramic art made from stoneware, porcelain or earthenware. The functional and decorative clay pieces are fired in electric, wood, gas or Raku kilns.
One highlight of the show will be the display of collaborative artwork to include team teapots, ceramic head sculptures, ceramic machines and ceramic bird houses.
The show called "CCA5@JCCS" will open with wine and cheese today from 5 to 7 p.m. The show will continue on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The JCCS is located at 9 Route 39 in Sherman. For information, call (860) 355-8050.
