We don't mean to stress you out, but it's time we all accept the fact that the holidays are coming up. And that means it's time to get our shop on.
Since we feel a duty to inform you of every opportunity to buy local, unique goods (a.k.a. gifts that don't come from the mall) whenever possible, we couldn't help but pass on some info about a few pieces of unique ceramic that were made by ASU students.
Check out two ASU Clay Club events ripe with unique gift-scoring potential after the jump ...
Check out the ASU Clay Club Pottery Sale Tuesday and Wednesday (November 16 to 17) all day at the MU fountain at the ASU Tempe Campus.
Head to Art One in Scottsdale for "Plasticity: An ASU Clay Club Juried Exhibition" today until December 17 (the opening reception is this Thursday, November 18 from 7 to 9 p.m.), where chosen pieces by Peter Held, Curator of the ASU Art Museum Ceramics Research Center will be on display and available for purchase.
Between both events, you can take your pick of ceramic artwork made by ASU students, graduates and faculty.
Go. Spend. And receive praise for being such a great gift giver.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
