Tour de Clay coming to San Antonio


The sixth annual Tour de Clay of Tampa Bay takes place Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 14-15, with free art studio tours and sales of orginial art. The event spans five pottery studios in Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco counties, featuring 22 clay artists. The tour concludes at San Antonio Pottery, 11903 Curley Road.

Charter member of the Florida Westcoast Ceramics Society and studio owner Jack Boyle will feature four clay artists each with distinctive approaches to creating with clay; stoneware, earthenware, raku and porcelain.

This year's theme is "The Collector's Edition." Every year the tour kicks off at two studio locations in Palm Harbor: 9 a.m. at Pottery Boys Clay Studios, and 10:30 a.m. at Clay and Paper Studio. Other studio kiln openings are at 2 p.m. at Hidden Lake Pottery in Odessa; 3 p.m. at Wellman and Welsch Pottery in Lutz.

San Antonio Pottery's kiln opening will take place at 5 p.m. with the shop's hours extended from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Refreshments will be served, along with entertainment provided in the evening by singer/songwriter Rebekah Pulley.
