Every year, the St Croix Valley Pottery Self-Guided Tour and Sale is anticipated by all who enjoy handmade pottery. It is nationally recognized as a gathering of exceptional potters. Always held on Mother’s Day weekend, “The Tour” is an opportunity to enjoy the hospitality of local potters in their rural studios and to meet accomplished guest potters from around the nation who have been invited especially for this weekend event.
Last year’s host pottery sites were: Linda Christianson’s distinctive studio and log home nestled in a clearing in the woods, Guillermo Cuellar’s hilltop home and studio overlooking the St. Croix River, Connee Mayeron’s pottery gallery-in-a-barn just down the road from the Franconia Sculpture Park, Jeff Oestreich’s early Minnesota farmstead remade into home and studio, Richard Vincent’s oak-shaded backyard studio, Will Swanson and Janel Jacobson’s studio along the Sunrise River, and the picturesque, woodland setting of Robert Briscoe’s home and studio.
Stay tuned for the list of host sites for 2018!
