The RED DOT sale at The Potters Place is our biggest sale of the year. In fact, we know that many of our customers who buy through out the year are also sure to come back about this time in January because the Gallery is full of RED DOTS. These are put on pots that are sold at a discount – the one time of the year that we do this.
Potters have been clearing and cleaning up their studios and bringing in pottery that is gorgeous, but they are just clearing out shelves of old and making room to make more pots. Every pot we sell is a first – no seconds here. The glaze may be a test glaze, or the design may be a design that the potter is no longer making or … may be just beginning to work out an idea of a new line. You may find a bowl that is a one of as all of it’s other “set mates” have all sold.
After the holidays, January is the perfect time to trim the fat! January 11-31, 2016, the Potters Place holds their annual HUGE January sale with prices that’ll make your jaw drop. OUR RED DOT SALE is our way of saying thank you to this wonderful valley, which continues to be so supportive of local artists like those potters of the Potters Place. We love that you have made us your GO-TO gallery and shop when you have gifts to give or when you have visitors visiting from away and want to show them the wonderful local art available in the valley.
Local potters trim their studio shelves of all sorts of pots ready for the new season of making ahead
The Comox Valley is the pottery mecca of British Columbia and in appreciation of your support; we wish to invite you to this very special sale. Many potters will bring new works into the shop and place sale prices between 10-70 percent off. All these pots are perfect, no seconds. A Beautiful selection of pottery will be dramatically reduced during January with partial proceeds going to some of our favourite charities in the valley. We continue to support our local food bank, Y.A.N.A., Potters helping Potters and others.
This once a year special event at the Potters Place is when potters clear out older stock or items that are made of a glaze that they may no longer be using. Sometimes a potter just wants to clear shelves of inventory to make room for the next set of pottery to be made. These are all wonderful pieces from t-pots to mugs, to butter dishes, to vases to platters and everything in between. When you come in, feel free to bring with a non-perishable food item so that we can help our local food bank to continue to help put food on the table – even after the turkey dinner holidays.
