Southern Crossings Pottery Festival

This is the second year for the Louisville-born Southern Crossings Pottery Festival (SXPF). The focuses of the two-day festival are a handmade pottery market with wares by 12 ceramicists and an Empty Bowls fundraiser. Co-founders Jason Burnett, Amy Chase and Steven Cheek plan to add new activities yearly. This year it’s a cocktail tasting with events Friday and Saturday. While SXPF is, of course, about pottery, Empty Bowls holds a special place in the founders’ hearts. Proceeds go directly to supporting A Recipe To End Hunger, Carole’s Kitchen and Blessings in a Backpack.
