What is Feats of Clay?       

Central New York's Feats of Clay was established in 1987 as a means to foster education of the ceramic arts for Syracuse area high schools. Feats of Clay has grown to include schools from Watertown and the north country to Binghamton and the southern tier as well. 

In addition to the high school competition, Feats of Clay has grown to now include a juried high school student exhibition that recognizes students that demonstrate excellence in the area of ceramics. Check out the slideshow below for the history of Feats of Clay.

These events have been student favorites for years. Teamwork and sportsmanship are imperative and the school that wins the days events are presented with the trophy by the previous years winners. They will house the trophy for the year and add something significant to it. 


The event is hosted by Clayscapes Pottery and is returning to the Everson Museum of Art.
