2023 Michiana Pottery Tour

The 2023 Michiana Pottery Tour will take place at 10 locations on Saturday, September 23 from 10am to 5pm and Sunday, September 24 from 10am to 4pm. (All times EST)

Sept. 23

10:00am to 5:00pm

Sept. 24

10:00am to 4:00pm

The Michiana Pottery Tour includes more than 30 artists at multiple locations across northern Indiana and southwestern Michigan. The two day tour takes place on the final Saturday and Sunday of September every year.

We’re interested in promoting the Michiana region as a hub for contemporary ceramics. Michiana has been home to many clay artists for more than four decades. It is also a new home for many new and emerging ceramic talents.

We hope you enjoy the region, the potters, and the beautiful countryside as much as we do.

Get updates about the Michiana Pottery Tour and the participating artists.

Commitment to Diversity

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.
