We are a group of artists and artisans who make beautiful things and sell them each year the weekend before Thanksgiving at Full-Circle Pottery. This year the event is scheduled for November 17-18, 10am-5pm both days. Handmade pottery; gourd, fiber and metal arts; walking sticks; hats; boxes; greeting cards; jewelry and more will be featured.
The festival also hosts an annual fundaiser benefiting the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA) in memory of Mar Vista potter and activist Linda Mechanic, our teacher and friend, who died of Ovarian Cancer at age 50. We join all those hoping for a cure and believe OCRA, with it's empahsis on research to find ways to identify, prevent and treat this silent killer, is part of the solution.

Fifth Annual Full-Circle Festival (2017)
The festival has in years past hosted a raffle benefiting the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance in memory of Linda Mechanic, a Mar Vista potter and activist. Last year the fundraiser raised more than $2000 to benefit Heart to Heart International's work in Puerto Rico. We believe Linda would have approved, given the many needs in communities affected by Hurricane Maria. Raffle items were donated by our generous local business neighbors, including Pitfire Pizza, Westside Workout, NOIR, GEM Photography, Sunny Grill, as well as Full-Circle Pottery.
