The ninth Berkshire Pottery Tour returns with a self-guided motor tour of five working pottery studios around the southern Berkshires — catch a close look at Paula Shalan’s wood-fired ceramics, Ben Evans’ bright geometric vessels, Linda Skipper’s black and white vases and bowls, Ellen Grenadier’s leaf-patterned stoneware, Daniel Bellow’s hand-thrown, earthy cups and jugs.

The potters have been busy all summer making new work, and all the studios will display their wares for sale in a diverse array of styles in functional and sculptural ceramics. This year, guest artists Harry Levenstein, Rie McCarthy, Connie Talbot, Michael McCarthy, Lois Aronow, Lorimer Burns and Hunter Cady will show their work as well.

The tour runs north-south and east-west and can be begun at any point, from the Richmond studio of Ben Evans to Paula Shalan in Stockbridge, Berkshire Art Center in Stockbridge, Daniel Bellow in Great Barrington and Ellen Grenadier in Monterey. Linda Skipper will have work online only this year.

Visitors who come to every studio can have each potter sign their map, and be entered into a drawing for the Grand Prize, a mug from each of the five potters. Your map/brochure is your ticket: pick one up at any studio and submit it to any of the potters to be entered for the drawing.

The tour will take place both in person and online, free, and families are welcome.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
