Alexis Templeton Studio hosts many exciting events throughout the year, including themed pop-up shows in innovative locations. Feast of Pottery and March of Mugs are the two anchor events in this series but as inspiration hits and time allows, other pop-up events occur which feature new work by Alexis plus an impressive selection of work by international ceramic artists.
