Throwdown Showdown


Saturday, April 22, 7-10pm

This ultimate thrown pottery competition will challenge 5 artists to show off their skills on the wheel. Scott Cornish, Christian Kuharik, Ken Lu, Jonathan Schwarz, and Talon Smith will compete to create the tallest, thinnest, widest pots, etc. Don’t miss this chance to see these skilled artists take their media to the brink. Drinks, snacks and DJ Jim Powell add to the fun. Throw Down Showdown coincides with the exhibition of contemporary ceramics, Thrown & Altered in Sweetwater’s Gallery.

All proceeds from Throwdown Showdown will benefit Sweetwater’s ceramics studio.
