Since 1983, The Oregon Potters Association Ceramic Showcase is the largest all-ceramic show in the country. 

Featuring 200 Oregon Potters Association (OPA) members, this three-day event offers visitors the opportunity to meet exceptional ceramic artists who are exhibiting and selling their latest work. Adults and children can both learn a variety of clay-making techniques from professional potters on the Demo Stage and in the Clay Exploration Area.

Other highlights include

  • High School Scholarship display and award ceremony. The winner receives a $1,000.00 scholarship.
  • High School Gallery displays student clay works from Oregon schools, exhibiting what they are learning and making this school year.
  • Main Gallery features a rotating selection of the finest work by participating members.

Visitors will find handcrafted pieces including sculptures, wall art, and functional pottery for the home, garden, and workplace, as well as beautiful gifts for Mother’s Day, weddings, birthdays, and other celebrations. 

Admission is FREE, with a suggested donation of $3 to support Clay in Education.

Registration opens in December 2024. All participating artists must be current member of the Oregon Potters Association.
