As you drive the scenic back roads in western PA, you will encounter a growing community of potters. These potters share and promote their love of clay and its creative properties.
In the fall, these potters coordinate a tour. They clean up their studios, wash the clay off their hands, proudly put their work on display, and warmly invite the public to visit their workplace and to learn about the life of a potter and what inspires their work.
studios have invited guest potters to display their work.
You can see and purchase the work of over 11 different
potters in seven locations. Note: Since some potters share
a studio, and others are guests for the tour, you may
find more than one potter's work at a single location.
tour is self-guided. Using the map and information on
this web site you can define your own trip and set your
own pace. The studios are no more than 15 to 20 minutes
