What is it about clay that grabs the heart and imagination of so many people?  Perhaps it's the amazing transformation of a block of raw, muddy clay into something beautiful and functional...like a mug for your morning coffee. There is great satisfaction in welcoming a handcrafted object into your everyday life, especially when you have met the person who actually made it.

The Artists (2018)

35 clay artists (potters, sculptors & jewelers) from across the state of Virginia will gather in Stanardsville for the 5th annual Virginia Clay Festival.
