This will be Firing 97 of the salt kiln, filled with pots of all sizes made by Mark and his apprentices, Hamish and Stillman.
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.
