Potters Market at the Mint – A New Chapter in 2020
After much thought and deliberation, Delhom Service League has decided not to present Potters Market Invitational in 2019, but the popular ceramics event will return in 2020 as a juried show and sale, and be known as Potters Market at the Mint. During this hiatus Delhom Service League is revisiting and reimagining all aspects of Potters Market to insure it is the best event possible for all participants, fulfilling its mission of showcasing the highest quality North Carolina ceramic art.
Delhom Service League, host of the event, is ”thankful for the corporate sponsors, individual sponsors, and attendees who have been so supportive over the years, and for the exceptional potters who have brought their best work to sell,” says Phil Sciabarrasi, president of the organization. “We want to return in 2020 with an enhanced experience worthy of their continued support in our exciting new chapter.”
