Help us launch the giving spirit of the season, nurture your creativity, and celebrate the opening of the Winter Exhibition and MN NICE Graduates. Hands-on clay activities and artist demonstrations will both inspire you and capture your attention. Masks will be required.

Winter is the season you share your curiosity and clay appreciation with those you love! We’ll have over 1000 extra pots, sculptures, and even jewelry. You will find local artists, as well as those who hail from all over the US, and who represent a diverse range of cultures, races, identities, and lived experiences. Come enjoy the space and choose the work that connects with you, or let us know if we can help offer guidance. Every purchase helps us continue programming and financially supports the individual artists in the exhibition!

We can help you choose the perfect present, gift-wrap for you, and even ship!

Please join us for our annual Winter Open House. Help us launch the winter holiday season with socially-distanced shopping in our galleries. Hands-on clay activities and artist demonstrations will both inspire you and capture your attention.

Each mug is just $29, gift wrapped, and includes the artist’s favorite mug-worthy recipe! It’s the perfect gift for corporate clients, friends, teachers, family, or your very own mug collection!

If you simply can’t choose, or perhaps want to give a little surprise gift to yourself? Each gift-wrapped box contains a mug or cup from one of our gallery artists. This may include work from the year-round gallery artists, winter guest artists, or American Pottery Festival artists. Your mug dreams or cup wishes are about to come true!
