Pottery showcase

An “exciting” showcase for the art of pottery will again come to Waihī over Labour Weekend, featuring more than 165 pieces by artists from across the North Island in what is the largest showing since the exhibition was introduced in 2019.
Clear As Mud is a show featuring the beautiful, practical, sculptural, whimsical or just plain weird work of more than 40 potters, from novices to professionals who exhibit internationally.
It will run at the Waihī Arts Centre and Museum on Kenny St, 10am-4pm daily, from October 21 to 24. Entry is free.
Event co-ordinator Dianne Caton said the aim of the event was to promote potters, attract visitors to the town, and add to the area’s already vibrant visual arts scene.
“We’re again expecting to have a very diverse range of submissions including sculptural pieces, functional and whimsical, from garden totems to wall pieces.
“Waihī is home to several potters who exhibit locally, regionally and internationally. People stopping by to view the show will be amazed at the wide range of talent.” All the work on display will be available for purchase.
