Twenty Dirty Hands Pottery Tour was developed to promote ten ceramic artists in small towns in the Northwest corner of Illinois. As friends and colleagues for many years, they have shared meals, music, studio spaces, kiln building projects and a way of life. The artists participating now number more than 10 but the name stuck. 15 of the artists will exhibit in Peoria. Visit www.twentydirtyhands.com
