Pottery 51 Open House in Mint Hill

Pottery 51’s Second Friday reception and studio tour is this Friday, November 8th from 6:30 to 9 pm at the studio located in The Lofts at 7714.  This month’s featured artists are long-time Pottery 51 leader David Bridge and Althea Mead-hajduk.

Pottery 51’s studio houses 26 local potters who spin and bake their clay works on site.  The end results are displayed in the front gallery as well as in each potter’s individual space, which makes Friday night’s reception the perfect time to start your holiday shopping.  Forget the “same old, same old” gifts this year.  Give a truly unique gift – a piece made by a local artist in Mint Hill.

The Lofts at 7714, Mint Hill’s only mill property retrofitted into 10 unique commercial loft spaces, is located at 7714 Matthews-Mint Hill Road in downtown Mint Hill.
