Holiday pottery sale in Nevada City this weekend

Six local potters and a glass artist will host the third annual Holiday Pottery and Glass sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Studio 540, located at 540 W. Broad Street in Nevada City.

“Studio 540 is an ideal location for our annual pottery sale,” said Rene Sprattling, who owns the studio and also lives on the property. “It is an old carriage repair garage that my husband Drue and I bought and renovated 10 years ago. There is lots of interior space (more than 1,000 square feet) for artists to exhibit their work, and it is an enjoyable five-minute walk from downtown Nevada City.”

To get to Studio 540, park downtown and walk up to the top of Broad Street Go left at the Y onto West Broad Street and look for the yellow barn on the right, about 100 feet up the road.

The clay artists selling work include: Tricia Burbank, Brad Carter, Yvon Dockter, Chic Lotz, Mindy Oberne and Rene Sprattling. Glass artist Mark Einert will also be selling his work. These artists produce a variety of unique work from wheel-thrown and hand-built pottery to large-scale garden art.

“There is a pot for everyone at this sale,” said local potter Yvon Dockter. “The artists will be showing some of their best work for holiday gifts. In addition to their regular-priced work, most of the artists are also offering seconds, which are priced low to sell fast.”

“In addition to the low-priced art on the seconds table, we decided to give everyone who attends the show a free raffle ticket to win art,” said local artist Tricia Burbank.

Each artist is donating a piece of work that will be displayed at his or her booth. Shoppers can check out the donated pieces and deposit their raffle ticket in a container next to the piece they hope to win. The winner of each of the seven donated pieces will be drawn at 4 p.m. Sunday and contacted by email.
