2020 Michiana Pottery Tour

The Michiana Pottery Tour is a regional arts tour, highlighting potters working in and around Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan. The tour began in 2012 and continues to grow each year as a collaborative effort among local host potters. The tour has expanded to include some national and international invited guest artists over the years.

As a collective of artists we recognize that the land we host our tour on is the ancestral home of the Potawatomi Nation. The Potawatomi people were stewards of this land for many generations leading up to an unjust treaty in 1828 when the land was taken by the United States Government and the Potawatomi were forcefully removed and relocated. We stand in solidarity against the systemic racial and ethnic discrimination that has been part of our country since it’s inception

We recognize that, with a founding group of midwestern artists, our tour does not adequately represent the diversity of artists currently working in ceramics, even within our own region. Our goal is to host a tour that continues to provide opportunities for education about the broad field of contemporary ceramics. We will strive to broaden the diversity of artists we represent, and work to promote diversity within our field and our region. This includes making more opportunities for Black, Indigineous, People of Color, and other underrepresented communities and using our financial resources to support BIPOC organizations.

The 2020 Tour will be ONLINE!

The health and safety of our customers, volunteers and artists are very important. Due to the ongoing uncertainty all artists will be selling their work online for the 2020 Tour. Options may include online shops and virtual appointments. A few artists may offer in-person opportunities as well.
