Ranging from functional tableware through to sculptural ceramics you are sure to find something to love at the Ceramic Market.

The Federal pre-Xmas Ceramic Market is the ideal place to find that special handmade, local and lovely piece of pottery that makes the ideal gift for yourself or your loved ones this Christmas.

Knowing that your chosen piece has been crafted with love and attention by the potters who also bring you the popular Mud Trail will also make your purchase special. The makers at this market are all members of North Coast Ceramics and take pride in what they produce.  The organisation’s motto is ‘Connecting people with pots through appreciation of handmade ceramics’ – and that’s exactly what they do. 

Many of the potters have experienced hardship because of the devastating floods earlier in the year and are just getting back into production, so a purchase at the Ceramic Market will allow them to continue to produce beautiful ceramics.

Ranging from functional tableware through to sculptural ceramics you are sure to find something to love at the Ceramic Market. So much so that you may even find it hard to gift your piece to someone else!

And in the spirit of giving, it’s also nice to hear that North Coast Ceramics donate a table of bowls available at the Market. Federal Loves Refugees is the chosen charity and 100 per cent of the money from bowls purchased from this table goes straight to them.

Federal Pre-Xmas Ceramic Market is on 26–27 November, from 9am–3pm at the Federal Hall, Jaspers Corner. What a great way to spend the weekend! A reminder to use Coorabell Road to get there as the road through Goonengerry is still closed.

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
