Holiday Sale opens December 9

The studio is humming with preparations for our December 9-11 Annual Holiday Show and Sale. For one weekend a year, we transform the Yourist studio and gallery into a sparkling holiday showplace. Then we fill it with the finest work by our Yourist Studio Gallery resident artists and selected students. You'll find a wide variety of beautiful handmade pieces, from dinnerware to decorative, that are perfect for everyone on your gift list.

Our Holiday Show and Sale is festive, fun, a welcome retreat from mall madness, and a seasonal celebration of ceramics. So make time in your busy holiday schedule to join us for exceptional ceramic art, good company, delectable food and drink, and seasonal conviviality.
