The Southern Crossings Pottery Festival
“Made by Hand. Designed for Many”
March 2nd and 3rd, 2018
Southern Crossings Pottery Festival’s focus is on the significance of handmade pottery by celebrating the object, it’s maker, and the utilitarian use in nourishing ourselves and those around us.
Our mission is to introduce to you – our Ohio River Valley communities, collectors, pottery enthusiasts and the curious – to local and regional potters, as well as several nationally recognized potters. The two-day festival includes a market consisting of handmade goods and functional wares, and an Empty Bowls fundraising event benefiting A Recipe To End Hunger — a non-profit organization solving childhood hunger one meal at a time in Kentuckiana.
In the years to come we envision hands-on activities, lectures, and exhibitions with other local clay organizations, universities, galleries and museums while creating an event that celebrates how clay and pottery, by design, connects us all.

Steven G Cheek – Louisville, KY
