• The Greater Lafayette Clay Guild participated in the annual fund raiser YWCA Clay Bowl at the YWCA - April 25, 2013 for prevention of domestic violence. The Greater Lafayette Clay Guild members donated a total of over 800 bowls this year to the cause.
From earthy, natureinspired sculptures to brightly colored deviled egg platters, a variety of pottery pieces from kilns across the region were on display Saturday in downtown Lafayette at the annual Summer Potters Market.
The event, which has grown during its more than 10-year run, showcases the work of local artists and promotes the area’s diverse pottery scene. This year’s market featured more than 20 potters. “I don’t think many people realize that there’s so many potters here,” said Janet Mummey of the Greater Lafayette Clay Guild as she looked across the YWCA of Greater Lafayette’s crowded gymnasium. Mummey showcased her own pottery at the market.
In the early afternoon, the gymnasium brimmed with shoppers — including state Rep. Sheila Klinker — who came in search of gifts, decorations and functional pieces. The YWCA hosted Saturday’s event as a gesture to thank the Greater Lafayette Clay Guild for donating to its clay bowl giving project.
Bowls were donated to the YWCA this spring for a fundraiser to support domestic violence intervention and prevention.
