Free, Outside & Awesome: The Ceramics Annual of America

There are so many potential jokes about ceramics events. Here are two I just thought up :

Q: Why did the guy get arrested at the ceramics fair?

A: He was selling pot.

Q: Why did the ceramics fair get busted up by the cops?

A: It was too big of a throw down.

ENOUGH. Nerdy jokes aside, The Ceramics Annual of America is a great FREE event going on at the Civic Center this weekend and you should go. In fact, even if you are planning on riding a Ferris wheels and making poor decisions on an island made of trash this Saturday and Sunday (I am), you can still pop over to the Civic Center Plaza  before you hop on the shuttles to Treasure Island Music Festival and check out some of the best ceramic art in the country. It’s going to be beautiful out and I’m sure for certain partygoers, the the sun will be hitting those glazes juuust right.

Just to be clear, this soiree is much more than eathenware containers. I’ve been checking out there website and some of it looks like some pretty crazy shit. Here are some previews (all photos courtesy of the CAA website):


Steven Allen


Natasha Dikareva


Hollie Dilley


Kris Marubayashi


All these are really just the tip of the iceberg, so take a stroll down to the Civic Center for a few hours or make some time before you hop on those buses to The Island.

But whatever you do, don’t be a buzzkiln.

Saturday Oct. 19th -Sunday Oct. 2oth
Civic Center Plaza
9am – 7pm
