Indiana Potters' AssociationAs you drive the scenic back roads in western PA, you will encounter a growing community of potters. These potters share and promote their love of clay and its creative properties. For over 14 years now, these potters coordinate a tour that is held the third weekend in October. They clean up their studios, wash the clay off their hands, proudly put their work on display, and warmly invite the public to visit their workplace and to learn about the life of a potter and what inspires their work.  The tour is self-guided. Using the map and information on this website you can define your own trip and set your own pace. Feel free to call any of the phone numbers listed for more information or if you wish to visit other than the tour times. This time of year is often peak for the fall colors making the drive in the country a photographic trip. Some of the studios may be demonstrating various activities of making pots.
