For those who appreciate decorative or functional ceramics, it’s a rare opportunity to see artists making such works — and to talk with them about their art." - Lynn Trimble, New Times

"It's a lot to take in during two days, and there are a couple ways you can approach the tour. Some favor hitting studios for their favorite artists; others opt for exploring studios for artists outside their usual orbit. Efficiency buffs know you'll get more done if you group your stops by geographical region, so that's how we've organized this guide." - Lynn Trimble, New Times
"The two-day event, put on by ASU Art Museum's Ceramics Research Center, features a variety of exhibitions and live demonstrations free of charge. Throughout the weekend, studios will be holding live demonstrations of wheel throwing, hand-building, and glazing techniques. For a full list of demo times and locations, consult the official tour poster."
