If you're the kind of market-goer who beelines immediately for the ceramics stall at your local makers market — and dreams of Patrick Swayze's ghost every time your hands hit the potter's wheel — then do we have just the ticket for you.
A new ceramics-only market is coming to Fitzroy. Melbourne Ceramics Market, or MCM, is a free event launching on August 6. They'll showcase handcrafted creations from over 25 different ceramicists. You can expect unique pieces (with bespoke being ever the watchword in editorial).
And, if you're big into the clay world, you may have already heard of the two founders, who are ceramic artists themselves. Daisy Cooper of Daisy Cooper Ceramics and Tina Thorburn of Clay by Tina are bringing the market to Fitzroy to create a retail space for other artists to sell their pieces directly to the public. You'll also find coffee trucks, cake stalls, and live music to fuel your ceramics-buying rampage.
