18 local artists/1 day only…

On Saturday, May 5th, Good Dirt will be hosting an Instructor & Student Pottery Sale. 18 local artists will be selling their unique and beautiful handmade pottery at our studio location (485 Macon Highway Athens 30606).

Whether you're on the hunt for a graduation gift, a Mother's Day present, or just need a new favorite mug -come and see what our super-talented students and instructors have been up to.

We'll have everything from succulent planters (complete with succulents!), mugs, bowls, and plates, vases, sculptures, decorated boxes and serving pieces to statement pieces. We have artists with wide-reaching interests and perspectives - from a wildlife biologist who studied sea turtles before making the move to pottery, to a teacher with a passion to save the bees, to an artist whose pottery is made with 100% locally sourced clay and glaze materials to stay true to the heritage of Georgia folk pottery.

It's going to be an exciting and diverse collection of local talent.

And, if that won't get you there...we'll have food. Lots of it.

Every day starting April 16th, we'll be featuring a new artist and their work on our FaceBook page and on Instagram (gooddirt_athens). Follow us/like us to see new work from the sale posted daily starting April 16th, and read the artists' stories about what inspires them to create.  If you want to join our Facebook event and receive a reminder about the sale, just click here.
