River Valley Potters has announced its fall pottery sale, September 27, 28 and 29. The group of eight ceramic artists and potters with six independent studios in Minnesota and Wisconsin works collectively to promote their studio sales and foster enthusiasm for ceramics in the region. The Wisconsin group is also known as the Western Wisconsin Pottery Tour.

Each studio sale features ceramics made by the eight River Valley Potters and numerous guest artists as well. Visitors are invited to drop in over the course of the weekend, meet the hosts and guests, and purchase handmade pottery and sculpture in six distinctive locations. 

Many of the participating artists are nationally recognized, with work in major collections and galleries, as well as countless homes and kitchens. They offer a broad range of styles, methods, approaches and price points, giving visitors a sense of the rich variety in contemporary ceramics.
