Made in Clay 2010: Crafting Community

New York, NY (February 19, 2010) -- Greenwich House Pottery, New York City’s only non-profit venue dedicated exclusively to the ceramic arts, has announced the lineup for its 13th annual Made in Clay benefit.

Made in Clay (MIC) is New York's annual, hotly anticipated ceramics event: a pottery sale, an exhibition, a celebration, and a fundraiser. The 2010 program will center on the notion of community and service in Greenwich Village and beyond. Made in Clay has always been about Greenwich House Pottery and all of the community programs it coordinates. These include everything from youth-directed and senior-citizen initiatives to scholarships for students. But this year in particular, with almost all nonprofits finding their coffers strained, the time proved right to reemphasize the need for neighborhood cohesion and 'giving back.'

"We are an organization that provides an invaluable educational service," said Sarah Archer, Director of Greenwich House Pottery. "But the primary mission of GHP is to support and enrich our community by bringing ceramics to people who wouldn't otherwise get to experience it." Made in Clay is also a great place to find fresh affordable art to brighten up your home for springtime. Accordingly, the benefit sale will be on view from March 26th-April 29th. The work of over 40 artists selected from across the country convey the wonderful variety of American studio pottery and ceramic sculpture today, from Kurt Weiser and Akio Takamori to Sam Chung and Kristen Kieffer. Guest artists’ work is displayed along side Greenwich House Pottery’s own artists (including residents and students), who exhibit works ranging from vases and sake sets to nesting bowls and elegant jewelry. Made In Clay also offers an introduction to Greenwich House Pottery’s Storefront, the only venue of its kind in New York City to offer an inspiring array of contemporary studio ceramics year-round.
