Joy in the Mountains
Came across this book, Joy in the Mountains, published in 1977 (40 years ago!). It’s about all the attractions in the “tri-state mountain corner of n.c.-tenn.-va.”
The pages here (click to enlarge) are from the chapter titled “beautiful hands, busy fingers” that's about all the crafts in the region. There are some familiar names here - McWhirter Pottery, Jim Sockwell’s Pottery, Toe River “Craftsmen” - and many more that aren’t familiar to me but maybe are to some of you?
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.
