Annual pottery clearance this weekend

At these prices, you can get a whole bunch of your Christmas shopping done in advance.

The Comox Valley Potters Club is holding its annual clearance and seconds sale this Friday and Saturday at Driftwood Mall in Courtenay.

Once a year, Comox Valley Potters Club members get together to empty their own studio shelves of discontinued items, of pots with glazes that they just don’t make anymore, or of pots that have been sitting around a few sales seasons and the individual potter is ready to discount that work.

Sometime it is just a way to clear visual space so an artist can begin fresh with a new series of work, or a new colour spectrum of glazing application. There are also a few slightly imperfects to be found at this sale.

At these prices, you can get a whole bunch of your Christmas shopping done in advance.

The Comox Valley Potters Club is a not-for-profit organization that helps members of our community, such as our local food bank, a bursary for a North Island ceramics art student, and You Are Not Alone to name a few, through the proceeds of sales like this one.

Like the club on Facebook and visit for news and coming pottery events.

The sale runs Feb. 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Feb. 16 from 9:30 to 5.
