Spring Fling* Pottery Auction
April 29 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
We’re having a Spring Fling* Pottery Auction at the North Carolina Pottery Center to raise funds to help the center better fulfill its mission of promoting awareness and appreciation of the history, heritage, and ongoing tradition of pottery in our state!
This auction will focus mostly on older (pre-1980) pieces that a number of aficionados and supporters across the state are graciously donating to us because, like us, they are passionate about our state’s rich pottery tradition, as well as inspiring other generations to collect, learn, and continue enhancing our understanding and knowledge of North Carolina pottery.
There will be pottery identification, a live auction, BBQ and fixings, great and interesting people and more! It’ll be a fun day at the center, for sure.
10 am – Pottery Identification (free, donations appreciated)
Start TBD – Live Auction
Start TBD – BBQ
(Live auction and BBQ fees TBD, but they will be modest.)
Absentee and telephone bidding will be possible.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page over the next few weeks, as we get in more pieces from collectors/supporters we will begin posting images online into a photo album.
*Disclaimer – We don’t really plan on flinging any of the pottery. 🙂
