November 2015


In November we are celebrating the Art of Ceramics, what better art form to combine with the festivities of the Thanksgiving holiday, with mugs, bowls, and dishes to enjoy at the family table. Chester County has hundreds of practicing ceramics artists who create both functional and purely artistic works, and each of the 7 wineries below sought out ceramics artists that best fit with their tasting room clientelle, and each offers different venues for guests to enjoy the Art of Ceramics while enjoying a wonderful glass of wine. Cheers! and Happy Thanksgiving!
