Potters celebrating a great show at the 2015 Wildfire Pottery Showcase

Thirty potters from Bend, Sunriver, La Pine, Sisters, Florence, Corvallis, Terrebonne, Ashland, Tacoma and Portland brought their collective talents together for the 11th Annual Wildfire Pottery Showcase in Bend this past weekend. The response from shoppers was wonderful, and potters enjoyed visiting with fellow artists and clay enthusiasts from around the region. Thank you to everyone who came by and showed their support for local, handmade and beautiful work!

The first Wildfire All Pottery Showcase was held in 2005 with an opportunity for you to buy directly from some of Central Oregon’s finest potters. Clay Guild of the Cascades sponsors this event to promote our passion for clay and to further clay education in the community. This continues to be the biggest and most exciting ceramic show and sale of the year in Central Oregon!

A selection of the best pieces, the ‘Best of the Show’ chosen by the artists themselves, will be available for viewing in the gallery in the center of the show. Most pieces in the gallery will be available for sale.

What will be happening – Along with pottery for sale by individual artists, we are featuring continuous ceramic demonstrations in the event hall. This year the Guild will sponsor five $25 gift Raffles. Three raffle drawings will be on Saturday and two on Sunday.

cups

You could say the textures on these cups are “hyper-local.” The rusty gears, nuts and wheels that made these designs were dug out of the dirt floor of a machine shop in the Old Ironworks. For how many decades did these bits of metal lie hidden in the dirt? What were they a part of once? Who made them? Contemplate time and the transitory nature of things while sipping your favorite drink from a handmade cup by Nature Girl Studio.

I’ve been busy making new leaf platters for the upcoming Forest Market at Tryon Creek State Park near Lake Oswego. This fall’s spectacular leaf displays inspired new colors in the leaf platters. I’ve really enjoyed the watercolor aspect of painting into the leaf impressions in the clay. Hope you like the results! – Diana
