Get a handle on your holidays ! Visit the Berkeley Potters Guild for their annual, month-long Holiday Show & Open House, beginning Thanksgiving weekend. The spacious
building at 4th & Jones Streets in the Artisan District of West Berkeley will be warmed with mulled wine, live music & the smiles of its resident artists who embrace the lifestyle of the handmade.
Working studios, transformed into intimate show spaces, display a sparkling array of exclusive, unique ceramics. Strolling the labyrinth of studios, visitors will find compelling works of art: spectacular colorful vases, elegant Raku pears, Asian-brushed platters, earthy mugs, refined celadon porcelains, mystical camel teapots, whimsical shadow box collage, fresh primary-accented plates, contemporary wall pieces.
The integrity of work at the Berkeley Potters Guild embraces the aesthetic of beauty & function, encouraging guests to leave with a handmade piece of pottery to live with and use every day. In a perfect blend of commerce & art, members are professionals in the field of
" Handmade in the USA". Make a commitment this holiday season to "Buy Local / Buy Handmade".
The Guild Gallery will host a special theme show entitled, "GET A HANDLE ON IT!!", tickling the imagination with pieces made by each artist. Is it true what Native Americans tell us, "Every pot remembers the hands that made it"? Come find out. You won't find this opportunity elsewhere--meet the artists and their work--you can handle it!!
