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 scored exhibition that recognizes high school students that demonstrate excellence in the area of ceramics.
