Thanks for a great Clay Club!
BIG thanks to Mike and Michon for hosting Clay Club last night. Mike Ball demonstrated an old-timey Catawba Valley potters' technique for throwing a 2-piece jug. In and around the 18th century, Catawba Valley potters were paid by the piece and so developed time-efficient throwing methods. Get you a copy of Turners and Burners to learn more about the rich history of folk pottery in North Carolina- a staple for every potters' library.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
