Community: 2017 MA Pottery Tours
Though it isn’t very warm outside in Massachusetts, we have started to feel a hint of spring thanks to two local pottery tour announcements. Just this week the Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail and the Hilltown 6 Pottery Tour officially announced their 2017 tour dates and released their rosters of guest artists who will be featured at the regular studio stops. Collectively, these tours showcase over twenty Massachusetts-based potters, and the weekend-long sales draw crowds from all over New England.
Both tours have been long-standing staples of the local arts community. This year marks the thirteenth consecutive year for the Asparagus Valley Trail and the eleventh for the Hilltown 6. Aside from their tangible contributions to the community, there is a buzz in the air (soda ash?) as everyone is fervently loading, firing, and unloading their kilns in the weeks leading up to the tours. April 29-30, and July 29-30, are two weekends to get excited about in 2017.
Where can we find Josh? Another good question. You can find me lurking in the background of this video from the Hilltown Six website!
