The Berkeley Potters Guild opens its doors to the public once again, for its 42nd Annual Holiday Sale, showcasing the art of its members in their private studios, which have been transformed into exquisite displays. Featuring a special theme show in their newly renovated in-house Gallery, each artist has pondered the theme, "Show Your Stripes" and created a personally representative piece. Aesthetic approaches range from whimsical to sophisticated, earmarking in clay each member's perspective and personality.
Guests may stroll through the spacious building sipping mulled wine or apple cider, listening to live music while shopping for
the perfect holiday gift, finding the diversity of artistic style in the Guild stunning. Cutting-edge sculpture, refined traditional Asian tea ware, animal sculpture, delicious chocolate brown dinner sets, gigantic kimchee makers, Buddha cups and jewelry have all made their way from fiery kilns to sparkling displays; inviting lucky recipients to have the honor and joy of using beautifully handmade pottery in their daily lives.
