In preparing the Month in Clay feature for September, I noticed that there were a few hotbeds of ceramic activity showing up on my radar. The Pacific Northwest was brimming with great ceramic events so I decided to include several of those. Perhaps folks in that area can coordinate some ceramics excursions and hit them all. Minneapolis, Minnesota, a notoriously clay friendly town, also had lots to do this month. Plus, I have gathered a selection of events and exhibitions from various points all around the country.
