The world of decorative pottery and ceramics is gloriously diverse and dynamic. For more than 100 years pottery has been a popular pick for American collectors, and today’s market reflects how much this interest has evolved. The five-day American Art Pottery Association‘s national convention, with its always popular art pottery auction, sale and show, and expert-led seminars again promises to provide a pottery experience to remember.

Among the special feature scheduled for this year’s convention is the showcase of the legendary Two Red Roses Foundation collection, with an overview of the collection presented by Jonathan Clancy, plus seminars by noted Antiques Roadshow appraiser Suzanne Perrault, as well as renowned artisans. In addition, there’s a tour of the former home of Gustav Stickley, a pioneer of the American Craftsman movement.
