© 2018 North Carolina Ceramic Arts Festival

Artist applications available annually January - March

NCCAF artists are ceramic artists from all over. They are tile makers, sculptors, potters, and jewelers. They make wall pieces, kitchen pieces, statement pieces, anything they can dream up and execute in clay!


NCCAF artists make their work by hand in working studios, sometimes alone, sometimes with the help of studio assistants, apprentices, spouses, and friends. We welcome any ceramic artist looking for another outlet to promote and sell their work to apply.

Our 2019 event in Pack Square will provide ceramic artists a great sales opportunity to reach thousands of customers in the heart of bustling downtown Asheville. 

In 2018 we had over 10,000 visitors through our gates and we can't wait to see that number grow in 2019!


We want to ensure that your participation is a positive experience. During the festival, the following amenities are offered to all artists:

  • Complimentary artist breakfast will be provided during set-up.

  • Vendor lounge and charging station will be available on site during the show.

  • Artist name and booth number listed in 2019 Festival program, website, and social media platforms

  • Free exhibitor parking

  • Booth Sitters available to allow artists to take breaks and get food

  • Comprehensive advertising and publicity is planned for the Festival including tv, radio, print, web, and social media
