A big THANK YOU from Cyclops Fest 2016!

Featured

Well, another Cyclops Fest is in the books! It was a whirlwind of creativity, awesomeness, incredible people and LITERALLY a monsoon of rain. Yes, we had to shut down due to weather a couple of hours early, but we still managed to pack in an epic amount of wonderfulness in the time that we had. None of it would have been possible without all of the heart, time and passion so many of you put into it. So, without further ado, we want to give a huge shoutout and virtual bear hug to every vendor who sat in 95 degree heat, all of our volunteers who worked their butts off, and of course, every festival attendee that supported the artists with your hard earned cash, drank beer and rocked out.

Also, a VERY SPECIAL THANKS goes out to our sponsors that provided invaluable support including; Dayton City Paper, Circle of Victory, WYSO Public Radio and the amazing tiny town of Yellow Springs, OH. Thanks and we will see all of 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.
