The Iowa Clay Festival is becoming a staple of the Mother’s Day weekend in Adel. This year’s event, the sixth annual, was once again held at Penoach Winery in Adel from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, May 12-13.


Pottery makers from all over the state set up shop at the winery and put their pottery and art on display for the visitors to view and purchase. Lunch was available from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. each day and free wine samples were available inside.


The weather was cloudy both days and thunderstorms plagued much of the morning and early afternoon on Sunday, but Marion Nehmer, who has displayed her work at every Iowa Clay Festival so far, said that they still had a nice turnout over the weekend.
