This will be Firing ‘elle’ of the huge alkaline kiln, and it features new pale blue and green Celadon glazes that Mark and his apprentices, Hamish and Stillman, have been working on these last few months.
Come on out and enjoy lovely pots, refreshments, and a day in the country!
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 brings together several voices to examine the aesthetics, folklore, archeology, and collection of this mighty, shared tradition.
