Flowers & Clay

Enjoy a day of art and agriculture in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains at Flowers & Clay, July 23 and 24, 2022.

Flowers and Clay hosts Emily and Josh Copus

Carolina Flowers and Copus Ceramics co-host a free, public open house and sale at their woodfire pottery center and gardens. The nearby farm hosts ticketed guests for tours and experiences throughout the weekend.

The home show, or kiln opening, is a traditional practice among North Carolina ceramic artists, going back centuries. Collectors arrive early to snag the freshest pieces from the most recent firing. Flowers and Clay combines this tradition with an experience of agriculture -- and acres of beautiful flowers.

All guests can visit the pottery facility and test gardens anytime between 10 a.m.  and 6 p.m.
