On the last weekend in July, we potters welcome visitors to the Hilltown 6 Pottery Tour and Sale to meet us and our guest artists. The ceramics are beautiful - and they are more: they are where and how we live our lives.
Come see it all at the height of New England summer.
There will be scheduled educational demonstrations: watch a potter turn a lump of clay into a pot, climb inside a giant wood-burning kiln, see how a ceramic artist creates a pot that looks like a stone freshly pulled from the earth.
The tour has earned national recognition. It has become an annual reunion of the family of artists, customers, and pottery lovers. The tour draws visitors from New York, Boston, Hartford, Albany, the Berkshires and beyond. Visitors are delighted by the range of ceramic expression, from favorite mugs to sculpture.
We donate a portion of the proceeds to local elementary schools for art supplies. This year, to inspire young artists to embrace life-long creativity, our donation is in honor of Hilltown 6 founding member, Constance Talbot, who celebrates her 60th year working with clay.
The tour is free and open to all. For info visit www.hilltown6.com
