More than 40 professional ceramic artists, many with regional and national prominence, will participate in the 8th annual ceramics studio tour. The self-guided tour is organized by the artists’ advisory committee of the ASU Art Museum’s Ceramics Research Center. Ten studios throughout the Valley will each host between two and eight different artists. This free tour offers the public a rare opportunity to view the working and living spaces of participating ceramics artists. Studios will offer live demonstrations of wheel throwing, hand-building and glazing techniques. Participating artists will have a wide range of both functional and sculptural artwork on exhibit and for sale.
Attendees will be able to attend different participating studios at their leisure on Feb. 21-22, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., each day. A brochure will be available at the Ceramics Research Center
January 5, 2009, that includes photos of the participating artists’ work, directions to the studios and a map of the locations. The Ceramics Research Center is located on the northeast corner of Mill Avenue and 10th Street in downtown Tempe. Free parking is available in marked spaces directly outside of the building.
