Tacoma Pottery Salon

Hosted by Reid Ozaki and Kristina Batiste
The Tacoma Pottery Salon is a chance for potters to exchange ideas, share pieces from their collections, and give career retrospectives to an engaged, interested group.
Also, there are snacks.


We’re moving closer and closer to that craftsman ideal but as a collective rather than as individuals. As a group, we are presenting our best in the spirit of social consciousness. We are honoring the traditions of the craft. We are passing knowledge on. Can shokunin apply to a collective? There is craft not only in the creation of pottery but also in the creation of community. We’re striving for both.
