FREE ADMISSION • MOTHER'S DAY EVE EVENT!
The Orlando Pottery Festival presents the Orlando Pottery Festival & Spring Arts Market, Central Florida’s largest spring celebration and market of ceramic art—featuring unique handmade items for the home, garden, and gift giving.
Join us on Saturday, May 7, 2022, from 9 am to 5 pm, at the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Orlando Lodge #25, 5505 Hansel Ave, Orlando, FL 32809. (This Mother's Day Eve event is perfect for last-minute gift shopping!)
Meet 34 talented local artists, including highly regarded professional potters who exhibit in galleries and juried art festivals throughout the South; mid-career artists whose distinctive designs and signature items are fast becoming contemporary collectibles; longtime “hobby potters” who are channeling their creativity while mastering their craft in local pottery studios; and younger and emerging ceramic artists, some of whom are selling to the public for the first time.
Shop the diverse range of these artists’ original functional and decorative work, such as handmade everyday dish ware, elegant ceramic jewelry, sculptural and figurative work inspired by Florida’s flora and fauna, whimsical and practical home and garden decor, and much more—all created on the pottery wheel or using hand-built and slip-cast techniques.
Returning visitors know that the Orlando Pottery Festival’s twice-annual events—typically held during the winter holiday season and mid-spring—are the best way to get “first dibs” on recent work from favorite local potters, and to meet the new artist vendors added to each festival. The Orlando Pottery Festival’s growth and diversity of artistic work makes for events that reflect the vibrancy and diversity of handmade ceramics.
The Orlando Pottery Festival & Spring Arts Market is a family-friendly event for all ages; free admission (tickets not required), free parking. For more information about the Orlando Pottery Festival, please visit www.orlandopotteryfestival.org.
