One of my favorite winter activities is to visit the annual potters market, it is put on each year by Oakland Community College by students and accomplished potters.
One of the largest in the country it features the work of about 130 artists from the area, all of whom have gone through or worked in the OCC ceramic program. It is a great way to add to my collection and each year I find new favorites and enjoy my time there. Many I recognize from local shows and years past and there are new ones each year as well.
It is just rows and rows of pottery, all in baskets which makes digging through fun and exciting to find the right color, shape and size. This year my fun color scheme was lime and blue, I also was drawn to red pieces, they were eye catching and fun to find as well. It is great when you choose a piece then later find a coordinating piece in a different location, hopefully you grabbed the first one.
