Pottery: get in before it goes
Thursday, 9th September, 2010
The Potter's Society opened its bi-annual pottery exhibition on Friday night with more than 60 guests attending the event.
Stoneware, earthenware, sculptures and primitive fired pottery are just some of the different styles of work for sale at the town hall facade until Friday.
Exhibition committee member Vicki Sladden said a lot of works had been sold on opening night and certain items were "walking out the door".
"We've sold heaps, and there was a lot that just disappeared," Mrs Sladden said.
Artist Amanda Twomey's animal heads were the biggest hits of the exhibit.
Mrs Sladden said the event was very hit and miss with different styles selling better in different years.
"This year it seems to be a bit of everything more or less."
She said a lot of "functional wear" pottery had been popular amongst buyers.
The exhibition also exhibits students' works created from the Tuesday classes.
The exhibition is open from 10 until 4pm today and tomorrow.
