Fired Works began as a local pottery show and has grown to become the largest exhibit of functional and sculptural pottery in the state of Georgia. The seven-day exhibit and sale includes special events such as a Virtual Preview Party and a demonstration by Mary Pinson on floral design arrangements.
Macon Arts Alliance cares about the health and safety of our employees, artists, and patrons. We will be following CDC and government guidelines regarding cleaning and physical distancing during Fired Works. Gloves and hand sanitizer will be available on-site as well as a hand-washing station. We offer contactless payment through PayPal and Venmo and otherwise encourage payment by credit card. The admission fee of $5 has been eliminated to reduce contact, but a suggested donation of $5 at checkout is appreciated.
We respectfully ask that patrons who have fever, cough or are not feeling well take advantage of our Fired Works Online Store. The online store offers curbside pick up at the Round Building during Fired Works hours or after the event at the Gallery at 486 1st Street, Monday – Friday from 10 am – 4 pm. Shipping and delivery options are available for an additional fee.
Fired Works 2020 Featured Artist: Holly Polich
Holly Polich makes ceramics out of her home studio in Roswell, GA. When she’s not making pots, she can often be found riding a tandem road bicycle with her husband, Rich. Sometimes their dog Millie rides along on the back of the bike, too.
Her prior education is in fine arts and textile sciences, where she has both a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master of Science, and her first career was as a textile designer for US textile manufacturing.
She was first inspired to make pottery when she fell in love with 19th century food storage crocks. Over the past few years, she has been focused on developing glaze recipes and techniques that create durable and unique surfaces.
