Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival


Pyromaniacs Pottery & Glass

The Pyromaniacs is a close-knit group of friends united by a shared passion for pottery and glass. We actively support each other in our artistic pursuits and have collectively showcased our work in exhibitions, both locally and nationally. Excitement is brewing as we participate in the Garden & Art Festival for the first time as a group. Join us for a unique experience with RAKU firing and engaging demonstrations. As a special treat, you’re invited to get hands-on and create something yourself. We look forward to sharing our love for pottery and glass and connecting with fellow enthusiasts during this exciting event.

We will have a demonstration of firing a RAKU firing on Saturday the 16th at 10am.

The opening of the Sawdust kiln is going to happen on Sunday the 17th at 10am.

Presentations of wheel-throwing and decorating of pots is on all the time.
