Fired Up! Victoria, BC May 25-27

More than three decades ago, the late Robin Hopper and his partner,  Judi Dyelle, envisioned an event that would showcase the best of British Columbia ceramics on one site for an event packed weekend.  During these 32 years, twenty-three ceramists have displayed and sold their work at the Metchosin Community Hall.  It is, in fact, the longest-running ceramic exhibition group in Canada.

The theme for 2018 is ‘Coastal Vessels:  Romancing the Sea’.  The exhibition and sale are open from 6-9 on May 25 and 10-5 on May 26 and 27th.  If you are out in Victoria, check out the great talent that has been juried into this exhibition and sale.
