Jackson County embraces mountain traditions, and one of the longstanding crafts is the art of pottery. For two days, artisans will display and sell their pottery while four demonstrations will tell the stories and traditions of local pottery in the area. There is a pottery style to fit any taste from fine art collectors to those looking for functional dinnerware. Local galleries feature both functional home stoneware and decorative ceramics. Collectors can choose from varying glazes and techniques for one-of-a-kind creations such as face jugs, whimsical figures, elaborate vases, and everyday serving pieces with flair. Free admission to the festival and food will be available for purchase.
