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

For the past 29 years, this three-day educational conference has served as the galvanizing force behind the current Arts & Crafts Revival. Author and –

Conference director Bruce Johnson has remained dedicated to his goal of providing Arts & Crafts collectors at every level with the information they
need to make confident and satisfying decisions as they select items, both antique and contemporary, for their homes. Johnson locks the doors to the
exhibition hall when his morning and evening seminar speakers are at the podium, in order that collectors, as well as exhibitors, can benefit from
them. In addition, he weaves small group discussions, walking tours, house tours, educational displays, workshops and demonstrations into an
agenda that runs from early morning to nearly midnight. The New York Times has called it "the most important weekend of the year for
Arts & Crafts collectors."
Exhibitors: approximately 50 of the country's leading Arts & Crafts antiques dealers; approximately 50 juried contemporary artists and artisans working in the
Arts & Crafts style; approximately 25 book sellers, publishers, non-profit organizations and magazines editors and publishers. A complete list is on the website.
General public admission to all three shows is $10, good for all three days.
