Our Museum of Ceramics Display

We are taking the display of plates that we made for the 2019 IADCCT Convention. Members of MVCT recreated many of the designs we saw when we visited the Museum on a field trip. Posters show photos of the life-size diorama in the basement of the museum.


It’s not too late to sign up for classes with Dru Woodward and Ruth Ann


Your entries need to be at the studio by Tuesday evening as we must enter them by 7:00 p.m. Wednesday. So far I have entries from Lucretia and Laura. Expecting some from Linda B, Mary, and P.J.
