Feiry pottery treasures
Thursday, 2nd September, 2010
Potters Society members will show off their "Fiery Treasures" tomorrow night when the 31st pottery exhibition opens.
The exhibition titled "Fiery Treasures," will showcase several different types of pottery - all made by members.
This is the first exhibition to be held since 2008.
"We use to have an exhibition every year, (but) last year we decided not to hold one so we've decided to hold them bi-annually now," exhibition committee member Vicki Sladden said.
Stone ware, raku, salt glaze, saw dust, cow dung, gas fire and electric fire works have been created by members whose skills range from beginners to advanced.
Students who attend classes every Tuesday are also displaying their work.
The group hold two craft fairs every year; one on Mother's Day and another for Christmas, and is looking for people who are interested to come down and try out the craft.
"We're a very active group," she said.
The exhibition is being opened by local artist Clark Barrett at 6.30pm at the Town Hall facade in Argent Street and will run until September 10.
