Hilltown 6 Pottery Tour


  • EM Smith Pottery 156 Nash Rd Cummington, MA USA (map)

Join me for the 10th Annual Hilltown 6 Pottery Tour in the hills of Western Massachusetts! This tour has become a great summertime tradition for pottery lovers from all over New England. It features a sampling of work from the Hilltown 6, a group of nationally recognized potters based in Western Massachusetts. Each summer they open their studios, inviting neighbors, friends, and collectors to see the process of making and to check out new work.

I'm happy to be a guest of Eric Smith at his studio in Cummington for the weekend. You can join us from 10-5 Saturday and Sunday. We'll be doing a demonstration at 11:30 each day: Multiple Forms of Decoration: Slipping, Layering, Trailing, Painting, and Latex Resist. Other demos will be running at other stops along the tour throughout the day. 

Make a weekend of back roads, great pots and summertime! Cell reception is spotty in many parts of the tour, so I recommend downloading this map to help you find your way from place to place.
