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 nine-day exhibit and sale includes special events such as Clay Workshops for Children, Corks and Clay workshops for Adults, artist talks and more. The mission of Fired Works is help Southeastern ceramic artists and potters show and sell their work. Fired Works promotes the rich history of pottery in Georgia and its connection to the history of the Ocmulgee River Region. People have made pottery along the banks of the Ocmulgee River for thousands of years and local potters continue this tradition today. In fact, the oldest piece of stamped pottery ever found in North America was found at the Ocmulgee National Monument in Macon. Fired Works is a program of Macon Arts Alliance and is supported by numerous sponsors and community partners.
