While the North Carolina and South Carolina traditions are linked by history, culture, and material, significant stylistic differences exist between the two, as individual potters used their consummate skills to give singular voice to their time and place. The last thirty years has seen extraordinary levels of interest in this regional ceramic heritage, and Great Pots, curated by Mark Hewitt at the North Carolina Pottery Center in Seagrove, NC brings together many voices to examine the aesthetics, folklore, archeology, and collection of this mighty, shared tradition.
‘Clay Talks!’ Saturday, June 17th, 3-4pm
Mark will give a presentation about Great Pots in the NCPC’s Education Building,
as part of the afternoon of celebration of Magadelene Ogundo’s visit.
A catalogue, available here, Great Pots from the North and South Carolina Traditions, accompanies the show.
Noon – 6:30PM
