About Ceramic Showcase


Ceramic Show­case is a yearly ceramic event which fea­tures ceram­ics from 200 dif­fer­ent Ore­gon and Wash­ing­ton artists.

But there is more to Ceramic Show­case than sell­ing pot­tery!  Mem­bers of the Ore­gon Pot­ters Asso­ci­a­tion work hard to bring edu­ca­tion in ceram­ics to our com­mu­nity, by bring­ing work­shops, offer­ing schol­ar­ships, and par­tic­i­pat­ing in the empty bowls project, among other things.

Learn more, shop for ceramic art, and get your hands dirty and make some­thing out of clay at Ceram­ics Showcase!
