Pots In Action is a crowd sourcing project that collects and features the best photographs of handmade pottery in use by potters and ceramic appreciators all over the world. Some are candid, others are posed; what they have in common is taking the pot off the shelf and putting it to work in the kitchen, out of the kitchen, wherever pots can be found.

This project is an evolution of Ayumi Horie’s original Pots In Action that she began in 2005. On her website, is a map of images of her own pottery being used by others.

If you’d like to participate, tag your Instagram images with #potsinaction. Weekly challenges are issued on Sundays.
