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.

After launching in 2017, Melbourne's ceramics-only market is back, holding a two-day event in Collingwood this summer. Taking place over the weekend of Saturday, November 16 and Sunday, November 17, Melbourne Ceramics Market, or MCM, costs a gold coin to enter, and showcases handcrafted creations from over 45 different ceramicists.

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 running the market to create a retail space for other artists to sell their pieces directly to the public. Some of the other names selling their wars on the day include Room23, Penelope Duke, And O Design, Katerina Wheeler and RaRa. You can check out the full lineup over here.

You'll also find coffee courtesy of Pokie May's and baked goods from Candied Bakery to help fuel your ceramics-buying rampage.

Melbourne Ceramics Market is open from 10am–5pm on Saturday and 10am–4pm on Sunday.
