Spring Pottery Sale enjoyed by guild members and the public

The annual Cariboo Potters Guild held its annual Spring Pottery Sale Saturday, May 11

Saturday was a beautiful day to get some fresh air, sun and new pottery from the Cariboo Potters Guild.

On May 11 outside the Central Cariboo Arts Centre, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a half dozens members of the guild were out selling hundreds of beautiful hand made pieces. A wide range of artistic styles and talents were on display from the colourful and cartoony works of Jude Prevost to the earthy and locally sourced works of Anna Roberts.

Today the guild enjoys record numbers of 41 members, old and new, from near and far with many of them lending their talents to the sale. The guild is proud to have such a large active membership, as 28 of their 41 members took part in a recent art show at the Station House Gallery.

Prevost said that the theme of the event was spring and gardening, with many of the resulting stoneware intended for use as practical pots and the like. However, many including her also chose to contribute exciting and unique pieces as well.

“Pottery is very functional as well so even if art isn’t your first love, (be it) baking, serving, soap dishes there’s a bit for everyone,” Prevost said. “I don’t know too many people that drink coffee or tea.”
