Pottery Open House

MERRIMAC, MA - In the quaint village of Merrimac, MA, just off the beaten path on 3 Mechanic Street, is Purple Sage Pottery. It was established in 1994 by Iris Minc, who has been a professional potter since 1984 and had worked in several area pottery studios before establishing Purple Sage Pottery. Iris shares her passion and her studio with up to twelve other potters, in addition to students taking pottery classes at Purple Sage.

This year, Purple Sage Pottery has a springtime show and sale on Sat., May 4, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., and Sun., May 5, 12:00 – 5:00 p.m.

The working studio will be transformed into a lively marketplace, overflowing with pottery, and featuring many of the studio’s potters as well as other area potters. This year the show includes works by Iris Minc, Fumihiko Mochizuki, Beth Bell, Bonnie Jean Malcom, Christina Bellinger, Lisa Mistretta, Lucy Hutchinson, Hiromi Satoh, Sibel Alpaslan, Gary Rathmell, Jenny Graf, Reg Logan and Ana Guerra. The works on display and for sale will range from beautifully wrought functional pieces to purely sculptural pieces, some suitable for out of doors.
