This year marks the 17th annual Catawba Valley Pottery and Antiques Festival. The Catawba Valley Pottery and Antiques Festival began in 1998. Its goal was and continues to be, showcasing the history of Catawba Valley alkaline glazed stoneware and the potters who continually produce this traditional utilitarian ware. Since most potters utilize wood-fired kilns at home sites, information about sales was tenuous, with customers relying on word-of-mouth or post cards. The CVP&AF provided an annual sale where pottery made in Catawba Valley, could be purchased. Over the years, development and growth have allowed the Festival to include potters from across the state and the South, as well as dealers offering historical pottery and antiques, providing a context for understanding the history and use of pottery in the South.?
