Calling all potters…


[Big Thanks to Cynthia, your mug was received and Greatly Appreciated!]

The Carbondale Clay Center is gearing up for their 11th Annual Benefit Cup Auction!

The Clay Center took me in as a young potter, gave me time to develop, a family of potters to learn from and has taught me the meaning of community.  It’s no secret that questionable economic times impact the ability of community art organizations to make ends meet. With that in mind…

Once a year we ask the larger potter community to step up and help us keep the wheels a turnin’ and the kilns a burnin’.  Over the years hundreds of potters have been kind enough to send cups our way to be auctioned off at our very popular Cup Auction.  This is the most direct synergy between our local community and the national clay artist community, and I’d like you all to be part of it.

11th Annual Benefit Cup Auction

Friday, December 5th 2008 Featuring more than 100 cups, mugs, tumblers, and tea bowls donated by ceramic artists from across the country.  All proceeds support CCC’s year-round programming.  Doors open 6p.  Bidding 6-7:30p

If anyone out there can see fit to donate a cup it would be most appreciated.  Every $50 goes a long way to helping us spread the word.

Cups can be sent to:

Carbondale Clay Center
135 Main Street
Carbondale, CO 81623
Phone – 970 963 CLAY (2529)
Fax – 970 963 4492

We often receive boxes of multiple cups from potter rich areas.  Ask your local collegues if they are donating and ship together to save on FedEx charges.

It would be great to receive them by the 1st of December.

We will happily publicize each and every donor

  • Share your website URL if you would like your name linked from our website to yours.

  • Feel free to include your resume, business cards, or postcards. Buyers and collectors always ask! The auction is held on Friday, December 5th 6-8p in the CCC Studio @ 135 Main Street in Carbondale, Colorado. For those of you nearby, we hope you’ll join us!

Thanks for your indulgence.

We now return to regular programming.

    I would be glad to donate a cup and will ask other members of the Colorado Potters Guild here in Denver if anyone is interested as well.
