Several of the participating potters will demonstrate turning pottery on the potter’s wheel and other pottery making techniques during the Festival.  Raku pottery demonstrations will be performed periodically throughout the Festival.


A limited number of redware, sgraffito plates commemorating the 25th anniversary of Stahl's Pottery Preservation Society and the Stahl’s Pottery Festival made by Joel Leh, great grandson of Thomas Stahl, are still available for sale.


The book entitled "Stahl's Pottery of  Powder Valley" will be available.  This book contains an informative history of the Stahl's Pottery, including chapters on Charles Stahl, Thomas and Isaac Stahl, Russell Stahl, and Carrie Stahl Schultz. The book features a 16 page color portfolio of pottery pieces made at Stahl's Pottery and over 75 historic Black and White photographs.



Due to the fragile nature of our potters' exhibits, please leave your pets at home; however, service animals are welcome.
