Lyn from Tauranga Tasting Tours & Charters

Clay My Day is a pottery group exhibition showing the work of Dianne Ceaton (guest artist), Virginia Angus, Ronel Moore, Raywyn Lewer and Anett Pilz. Covid-level permitting, we will be travelling to the exhibition next Wednesday, 19 August. Cost is $25.00pp.for door-to-door transport within the Tauranga/Mt Maunganui/early Papamoa area or en route to Katikati; the exhibition has free entry.
"Connected by clay, this exhibition features ceramics from five studio potters who work in the Katikati region.
Many of these pieces were made as the world shut down during Covid-19 Lockdown.
The diversity of pots in this exhibition reflects the different cultural and professional backgrounds and levels of experience of the artists. Behind each pot there is a story of individual approaches in workin with clay by using different techniques, clay, firing and surface treatment." (Arts Junction flyer)
The exhibition shows varied pottery techniques, including Mixed Media, Raku & Neriage Nerikomi (meaning hand-building with coloured clay).
Following the gallery visit we will give you time to visit the Katikati shops, view the town's range of murals, & have lunch - or you can enjoy your own peaceful picnic lunch perusing the messages on the Haiku Pathway
