EXHIBITION DATES: March 1st - 29th, 2019

Purchase a handmade cup &
pair it with a locally handcrafted beverage!

The Carbondale Clay Center presents Pairings, an annual event centered on pairing the handmade cup with the handcrafted beverage. Featuring handmade ceramic cups, created by more than 20 local and national artists and beverages from a selection of distinguished Colorado distilleries, wineries and brewers, as well as other non-alcoholic beverage makers.

The community is invited to choose a cup to purchase and “pair it” with tastings of handcrafted beverages donated by event sponsors including Marble Distillery, Roaring Fork Beer Company, Rhumba Girl Liquors, Bonfire Coffee, Carbondale Beer Works, Suerte, and Elevated Elixirs.

This annual event brings hundreds of Roaring Fork Valley community members together at the Carbondale Clay Center. Join us this year for Pairings on First Friday, March 1, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Carbondale Clay Center, 135 Main St. One drink ticket is included with the purchase of a cup or sold separately for $5 each. Cups will range from $25-$100.

Pairings is one of the Clay Center’s most exciting community building events,” says Angela Bruno. “We strive to celebrate our community by pairing local handcrafted beverages with a variety of ceramic wares from Roaring Fork Valley to internationally recognized potters. We are proud to create these pairings and host this diverse group of makers.”
