Can anyone recommend some places to visit in the Denver/Boulder area?
Anything to do with pottery. I'm planning to stop at Mile Hi Ceramics in
hope of finding some information about local artists. I'm here for two
weeks visiting family and need to plan a couple of escapes! Thanks!

There are several pottery places in Cherry Creek/Denver,
and Mile Hi should be able to tell you what is going
on in the area. Boulder has a LOT of potters, too.

Check out the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities at 69th N.
Wadsworth in Arvada. There are several clayarters milling about there
including Connie C., Marie Gibbons, me, and a few lurkers we don't hear from
very often. While you're there go South a bit and check out the new Arvada
Ceramics Guild and check out their wonderful facilities. I don't have the
address on hand but Linda from Mile Hi will. She'll be a good reference for
things to do and see. There are a bundle of wonderful potteries to visit in
the Boulder area.

I would highly recommend visiting the Arvada Ceramic Arts Guild, which is at
5870 Olde Wadsworth Blvd. Their phone is 303-423-0448.
I can't remember the "official" open hours but I believe it was maybe Friday
evenings and Saturdays, possibly Sundays.
They've got some monthly Saturday workshops if you'll be around. There's
one with Blair Meerfeld on July 24 on Teapots and Pouring Forms and one on
August 14 (by Marie Gibbons), called "Visually Speaking." Connie C has one
on Altered Forms on Sept. 18. Calling well in advance would be a good idea.
Good clay artists, I'm sure the workshops will be excellent.
I called during a weekday, wanting to visit during my lunch hour and was
welcomed and given a grand tour. What a place! It was amazing to see so
much excellent work in progress, as the "studios" are mostly in open spaces
For anyone wanting to form a collective, this is a beautiful example of how
to make it work and to drool over the beautiful pottery while you're there.
Oh, yeah, not to mention buying a piece or two from the gallery!
Hope you find lots of clay while you're here in Colorado! Enjoy!
