                            NDPCS ROAD SHOW

The North Dakota Pottery Collectors Society has developed a program called the “NDPCS Pottery Road Show”.  The program provides historical and general information about the major producers of the types of pottery made from North Dakota clay.  The program includes a slide presentation, a possible display of ND pottery types, and an identification session. The one to three hour program format would be presented by volunteer NDPCS members.

The NDPCS invites your organization to consider scheduling and hosting the Pottery “Road Show” in your community.  Details and information about scheduling the event, location and facilitator will be worked out on an individual basis. Further details may be obtained from Quent Christman,  941 Oxbow Court, Grand Forks, ND 58203, 701-775-3265.

The NDPCS Pottery "Road Show" was hosted by the Plain &  Fancy Antique Mall in the Grand Cities Mall at 7 PM on Thursday, June 9, 2016 with Quent Christman serving as the facilitator. Thirty-six individuals attended the "Road Show" presentation.

Five individuals brought numerous pottery items in for identification and evaluation. The items included UND, Rosemeade, Dryden, Rushmore and North Dakota Contemporary items.

One NDPCS membership was received. The books, "UND Pottery" by Forster and "Beautiful Rosemeade" by Harms, were given as door prizes. A book "UND Pottery" by Forster was donated to Ell-Pirut Multer of the Plain & Fancy Antique Mall. The Antique Mall remained open until 9 PM that evening for the shopping convenience of those attending the "Road Show."
