Potters trim prices in January

From Jan. 7 to 31, you'll find works by many potters at trimmed prices.

THE POTTERS PLACE in Courtenay is trimming prices this month.

OK, we all know what it is like to eat just a bit too much during the holidays.

All that rich gravy and chocolate…

The Potters Place has decided to trim the fat, too. From Jan. 7 to 31, you’ll find works by many potters at trimmed prices.

In lieu of the typical monthly featured artist, the Potters Place will highlight many of its artists.

Every artist has work that may have a glaze that they no longer use, or the last few pieces in a series that they have been working with. There just may be a few pieces that an artists has had in the shop or in their studio for a while and they want to make room for more work on their shelves and the gallery wants to make room for brand new work from our very gifted potters as well.

Whatever the artists’ reasons, you’ll find gorgeous pots of all shapes and sizes, crafted by local artists at Honey, Start The Car kind of prices.

Come for a walk to the Potters Courtyard at Fifth and Cliffe and check out the pots in the window as the gallery windows are all lit up each evening. This is where you’ll find these wonderful pots that are on special this month.

Everything from mugs and tea cups to pitchers and platters and bowls and … well, come and see for yourself.

The Potters Place is a collective of local Comox Valley potters with the largest selection of handmade pottery on Vancouver Island. In fact, the Potters Place has one of the largest selections of handmade pottery in all of B.C. and Canada.

If you love pottery, this is the place to visit. Be sure to bring your visiting guests. Everyone loves pottery.

The Potters Place is located at the corner of Fifth and Cliffe in downtown Courtenay at 180 Fifth St. across from the Sid Williams Theatre. Phone 250)-334-4613.

It’s open Mondays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Parking is at the rear of the building.
