What is it about clay that grabs the heart and imagination of so many people? Perhaps it’s because there is something so amazing about transforming a chunk of raw, muddy clay into something beautiful and functional like a mug to drink out of. There is great satisfaction in welcoming a handcrafted object into your everyday life, especially when you have met the person who actually made it.
Held in the town of Stanardsville in beautiful Greene County, the Virginia Clay Festival is an art show celebrating the creative possibilities of clay. This is a gathering of Virginia potters, sculptors and jewelers selling their latest work. All in clay!
