Port City Pottery & Fine Crafts Celebrates its THIRD Anniversary!

It's hard to believe, but THREE years have passed since the opening of Port City Pottery & Fine Crafts.  Thanks to the vision (and daring!) of several local women potters, we have this beautiful and very successful gallery (of NOT just pottery!) in a fabulous location in The Cotton Exchange in downtown Wilmington NC.  I think the planning and execution of their vision - and its success - are a tribute to these women.  From the beginning, there have been about 20 local artists in total (some have gone; new ones have been added).  There are - besides clay artists - others who work in fiber, gourds, pine needles, metals, mixed media, etc.  All live and work in the Wilmington NC area.  Everything in the gallery is hand-crafted!

There is a huge variety of work from our creative collective, changing all the time as we stretch our imaginations to develop new styles, new media, new art.

This is what we look like today!
