We are doing it again!! This time my larger studio space should have a tile floor and french doors!

The fourth annual Shawnee Hills Pottery Trail event will take place Saturday, May 4th and Sunday May 5th from 10 AM to 5 PM each day. 9 potters will be featured on the Trail. The self-guided driving/biking trail will include 6 stops and go through beautiful Jackson and Union Counties in Southern Illinois.  The event is open and free for everyone and will give the public a chance to interact with potters, see the studios and view demonstrations. There will also be pottery for sale at each stop.  A Pottery Trail Passport will be available and if completed with a stamp from each stop will give the holder a chance to win free pottery.  The link for the Shawnee Hills Pottery Trail website, which includes information on each of the potters and maps of the trail is:
