Each semester for more than 40 years, Boise State University has hosted a sale of original pottery and ceramic works by students, faculty and alumni. Featuring hundreds of pieces, the twice-yearly sales have become a Treasure Valley tradition and popular opportunity not only to acquire one-of-a-kind art works, but learn thing or two.
The Boise State Spring Clay and Fire Sale is set off Saturday, May 2-Monday, May 4, with proceeds going to support the Boise State Department of Art’s Visiting Artist in Ceramics program, which brings artists from across the nation to demonstrate their techniques, discuss their work and present examples. Boise State students, faculty and staff can attend the two-day workshops from free, but thanks to the Clay and Fire sale, members of the public can attend for $25.
New items may be available daily, so organizers suggest repeat visits.
