If you are looking for creative fun in Silicon Valley, check out the 21st Annual Palo Alto Clay & Glass Festival at the Palo Alto Art Center. This acclaimed 2-day art show features original, hand-crafted clay and glass art, including pottery, sculpture, bowls, plates, home décor, abstract and urban wall art, and three-dimensional forms.
The 21st Annual Palo Alto Clay & Glass Festival features 175 nationally prominent artists and artisans displaying contemporary and traditional arts and crafts - from functional housewares to whimsical accents. Browse the beautiful galleries and artist booths for stunning glass sculptures, patterned pottery, stunning vases, garden art and unique jewelry. Shoppers will also get to meet the artists and learn about the art and the creative process.
The 21st Annual Palo Alto Clay & Glass Festival is a wonderful experience that immerses you in the artistic experience and the power of expressionism. The festival offers hands-on activities where you can see raw materials transform into beautiful shapes and take part in pottery-making, wheel-throwing and glass demonstrations.
Get messy and play with clay in the Children’s Clay Classroom and participate in Color the Creek, an installation with white ceramic pieces for painting in the entryway of the transformed Palo Alto Art Center. Walk the galleries, create art and enjoy live acoustic music.
