Thank you for making Cyclops Fest 2015 epic!

What a great Cyclops Fest 2015! Thanks to everyone that attended Cyclops Fest and we look forward to seeing you next year!!!

We’d like to say a special thanks to our premier sponsor Dayton City Paper, our media sponsor WYSO Public Radio and our festival partner Yellow Springs, OH!

We’d like to thank the talented vendors for providing the festival with their handmade awesomeness. From hand knitted hats to hot off the grill hot dogs, no one failed to impress.

Thank you to all the musicians and DJs that kept us dancing and moving all day long! Thank you to our wizard of sound Jim Simpson!

Thanks to the Village of Yellow Springs and the police department for all your assistance and to the John Bryan Community Center for providing the perfect space for our handmade party!

The ultimate thank you goes out to our amazing volunteers that have continued to support us over the past few years, there are only a handful of people who can do what they’ve done and we were lucky enough to have 53 of them! They make Cyclops Fest a truly epic place to be!!!

Pictures to come. See you next year!

Welcome – 2014 Best of Show Winner – Preble Clay Works

Be sure to visit the Preble Clay Works booth at Cyclops Fest!

An attraction to nature along with an interest to investigate historical techniques is what cultivates the work of ceramist Amy Dillon. She established PrebleClayworks in 2004, together with her husband Judd, after obtaining her degree in Fine Art Ceramics from Ohio University. Amy delights in the versatility of clay, fostering her exploration of a variety of methods in continuously evolving ways. Most recently, Amy has enjoyed creating small ceramic canvases in the form of jewelry, along with the use of molds – both newly created and vintage. In addition, the couple keeps bees and sells honey from their West Alexandria, Ohio hobby farm. You can learn more about the studio and apiary by connecting on-line with Preble Clayworks on Facebook and Etsy.
