The potters of Vancouver Island are once again set to converge on the Campbell River Sportsplex for their annual Holiday Pottery Show and Sale to be held Saturday, Nov. 10, from 11a.m. – 4 p.m.

Thirty artists from Campbell River, Quadra, the Comox Valley and Qualicum will again be presenting their most recent work.

The range of techniques and styles is vast and covers the gamut from raku and earthenware to stoneware and porcelain.

Whether you are interested in functional and utilitarian ware or sculpture and decorative work, it’s a feast for the eyes that will charm and delight.

For those seeking gifts there are beautiful pieces in every price range and of course Christmas ornaments of all types.

This is the largest show of pottery on Vancouver Island and the admission is free.

The Carihi grad class will be on hand to serve a variety of delicious soups, sandwiches and refreshments.

This year the Campbell River Food Bank will be on hand accepting donations of non-perishable food and cash, so bring along a gift for those who need help. As an extra bonus, enter to win a beautiful stoneware casserole dish by potter Algis Bubneys.
