A Zanesville hotel has transformed into a pottery lover’s dream for the next few days.

The Ramada Inn is hosting the annual Pottery Lovers Reunion. Vendors and collectors have set up their various pottery pieces throughout the hotel. This year’s theme is unusual shapes and unique pieces.

"Things that you don’t see every day will show up tonight and sometimes they are for sale, but most of the time they are not because they are in people’s collections," said President John Stofft.

 Since southeast Ohio is well known for its rich history with pottery, the show attracts vendors and collectors from near and far.

"California, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Detroit, Michigan, all over the midwest," said Stofft.

The event will run every day at the hotel until Sunday. There are also other events planned in the area. For more information you can visit their web site at www.potterylovers.org
