THURSDAY, Sept. 19 — More than 50 Michigan artists will descend on Greater Lansing for the third annual Cracked Pot Studio Tour this weekend. The free, two-day art appreciation opportunity is the largest tour of clay pottery studios in mid-Michigan.
“My inspiration for this tour is the St. Croix Valley Pottery Tour in Minnesota,” said tour organizer Mary Fritz, in a press release.
Fritz owns the Red Cedar Studio in Williamston. “We offer a self-guided driving tour of nine established local pottery studios, which showcases the unique work of more than 50 ceramic artists,” Fritz said.
This year's tour map includes one pottery studio in Bath, one in East Lansing, two in Mason and five in Williamston. The tour's website lists 49 featured clay artists. Also featured on the tour: a linocut printmaker, a metalworking artist and an artist whose preferred media includes wood and metal.
