Dozens of potters from across Central Florida will take part in the third annual Orlando Pottery Festival from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 7 at Loch Haven Neighborhood Center, 610 N. Lake Formosa Drive, near Loch Haven Park.
Just in time for holiday gift-giving, the festival will feature all kinds of ceramic art, from functional pottery bowls and mugs to whimsical ceramic piggybanks to fanciful abstract sculpture. Most of the artists involved are members of the Downtown Orlando Pottery Studio, a city institution since 1968.
Along with close to 50 ceramic artists selling their wares, the festival will include free parking, a pottery raffle and food and beverages from some of Orlando’s favorite food vendors.
Loch Haven Neighborhood Center is at the intersection of Lake Formosa Drive and Alden Road, just east of Orange Avenue and south of Princeton Street. Free parking is available. For up-to-date information, go to orlandopotteryfestival.org or https://www.facebook.com/OrlandoPotteryFestival.
