Auction Manager, Todd Avery, announces a few of 2012 Auction Highlights

Stoneware and pottery are in the air, as another RWCS Convention is almost upon us. Memories of last year’s wonderful event still linger in our minds and we set our wondering imaginations to what will be in store this year.

The Thursday RWCS Auction is coming together with a nice variety of offerings. This year’s event is shaping up to have about the same number of lots as last year (250+). As always, there are some really incredible pieces in the lineup, including TWO signed 30 gallon salt glaze butterfly crocks. Yes, two! The photos shown here are a few of the items that have been submitted. This may be your year to add that special piece of art pottery, dinnerware, or stoneware to your collection. And, what better place to do it than at the RWCS Thursday Auction!? I hope everyone remembers that this is your Auction. Every piece is from a member or a chapter, and by attending and bidding, you are directly showing your support for fellow RWCS members.

The Auction Check-in is from noon to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 11 and 8 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 12. The earlier you can be there to submit your piece, the better. Auction viewing will run from 12:15 to 4:15 p.m. Thursday and the event will start at 4:30 p.m.

I encourage everyone to come early and bid often. I hope to see you there!

-Todd Avery, RWCS Auction Manager
