The Glen Echo Pottery Gallery is open April though December, every Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 pm, and for extended time during special events in the Park. The Gallery shows the work of 28 instructors and advanced students from Glen Echo Pottery. All pieces are for sale and represent a variety of forms, glaze treatments and firing effects. Most of our pieces are functional—cups, bowls, jars, vases, casseroles, and the like—offering utility and beauty to everyday life. Decorative works include raku, ceramic bead jewelry and sculptural vessels. This is a showcase of ceramic art made here in our studios in the Park! We welcome visitors (especially children!) to watch our advanced potters demonstrate on the wheel or create pieces using hand-building techniques during most weekends.
