Pottery festival at Crow Valley
Crow Valley Pottery presents its annual Potter’s Festival, which begins Friday, July 19 with an opening reception at the historic Cabin shop from 4 to 7 p.m. The festival has offerings from Orcas Island and the Northwest, as well as selected work from around the country. The Potter’s Festival runs through August.
An integral part of this year’s show is the inclusion of demonstrations in hand carved slab-work by potter Sandra Kvalheim. This Yacolt, Wash., based artist carves her original designs into the clay after the “slip” (liquid clay as a glaze) but prior to the firing process. She will be showing her technique at The Cabin Friday afternoon and Saturday.
Another attraction of this year’s Fest is the woodblock carving and hand-struck prints created by long-time Crow Valley artist Debby Neely.
