Cape Fear Studios has been holding the Nellie Allen Smith Pottery Competition for 20 years.  Our goal was to give clay artists at first, locally and now nationally an opportunity to compete with their peers. We have been fortunate to have great community support and have been able to invite many accomplished potters to be our judge.  This year’s competition was juried by Rick Berman, a nationally recognized potter from Atlanta, Georgia.  This year’s competition winners are listed below.  We hope you will take time to visit our exhibit.
