The 31st National Arts and Crafts Conference

, , , | 02/16/2018 to 02/18/2018

Grove Park Inn, Asheville, NC

Even after thirty years, I still find it hard to believe that the Arts and Crafts Revival is still going as strong as ever.

But, then, when I think about the excitement and the passion that people from across the country bring to the Omni Grove Park Inn each February, it really is not that hard to believe.

Since 1913 the Grove Park Inn has been known as the mecca for Arts and Crafts enthuiasts. And since 1988 the Arts and Crafts Conference has been educating and entertaining Arts and Crafts enthusiasts at every level -- from beginning collectors and bungalow owners to experienced auction and show veterans.

When I founded the National Arts and Crafts Conference thirty years ago, I had but one goal, and that has never changed: to provide educational opportunitiues for every attendee, regardless of their level of experience. From seminars and small group discussions to walking tours, demonstrations, and the selling shows themselves, these three unique days in February are designed with you in mind.

So, please, take a stroll through the pages at this website, starting with the Daily Agenda below and the Slide Show, to get a feel for what we have planned -- and are continuing to plan -- for you. And if you have any questions, just send us an email or give us a call, as Jan and I are here to answer your questions, take your requests, and do everything we can to make this YOUR most important weekend of the year. –

About The Los Angeles Pottery Show

The Los Angeles Pottery Show began when producers Ken Stalcup and Dennis Warden solidified their passion for art pottery into an annual show to promote collecting art pottery ranging from contemporary to vintage to antiques in 1999.

After the 2016 Los Angeles Pottery Show,  longtime producers Ken Stalcup and Dennis Warden made the difficult decision to retire from running LAPS, and announced that LAPS 2016 was the last show.  After hearing the sad news, current owner Kyle M. Shiroma made the big decision to revive the show and build on the solid foundation laid by Ken & Dennis, and continue their legacy into the next generation of art pottery enthusiasts.


Our vision is to promote contemporary ceramic artists, education on vintage & antique art pottery and connect artists and vendors to collectors and fans alike


Current producer Kyle M. Shiroma has over 20 years’ experience in the retail field, from high end merchandising to pharmacy services and more recently in the fine jewelry field as a diamond grader for the Gemological Institute of America and fine jewelry retailing.


Our philosophy is to advance the passion, interest and enjoyment of art pottery
