Zanesville, Ohio: Giant Circle of Vases

Zanesville is known for its pottery, hosts and annual pottery festival, and had been the site of the World's Largest Vase. The circle of custom decorated vases appear to have been part of a 2008 community art project; you'll find more around town.

Giant Circle of Vases

While navigating the "Y" bridge (which was curious, but not terribly exciting, since we got there after dark), we came across a circle of giant vases! Each vase is taller than a person and is painted with a unique design. Perhaps a local art contest?

At the intersection of Pine Street and 40 Highway, you can pull over into what appears to be an empty car park and get out to tour the vases. We didn't see an explanation - so we made up our own!

Zanesville was once home of the World's Largest Vase, and has a famous local pottery industry.
