April Clay Club with Kim Ellington at West Union Art Studios in Morganton on April 12th
April Clay Club will be from 6-8 pm on Wednesday, April 12th at West Union Art Studios in Morganton. Thanks to Briana Blackwelder for organizing this Clay Club meeting and to West Union Art Studios for hosting us!
Kim Ellington is a Catawba Valley potter known for his rich alkaline glazed, wood-fired stoneware. Ellington makes his home in the community of Vale, North Carolina, where the use of local clays, ash glaze and groundhog kilns began in the early 19th century and continues through his work today. His adaptation of and proficiency in these time-honored techniques has resulted in his pottery being represented in museums, private collections and ceramic exhibitions throughout the country.
We will have the usual potluck, so bring food to share. Clay Club is BYOB, so bring drink, too.
West Union Art Studios is located at 113 West Union Street in Morganton. Google maps will get you there: goo.gl/SvP9Y3
