Catawba Valley wood fired folk pottery made from NC clay. Face jugs & storage jars. Since 1991 she was self taught and apprenticed with Seagrove potters. She builds & fires wood kilns. MDF is academically trained to prospect for clay. Open by Appt. only.
I make and woodfire functional and sculptural ceramics in Walnut, NC. My work is a study of thousands of years of historical form with a contemporary take on surface.
I am compelled by the sensation of seeing things fresh. As if waking, for the first time. The flora & fauna surrounding my studio continues to surprise me. My desire is to create something that might also bring its observer to a place of discovery.
At Michael Kenney Pottery, I produce functional/decorative porcelain and stoneware. Work is wheel-thrown or hand-built and high-fired in oxidation and sometimes salt/soda. Visit my website, or view my work at Kress Emporium in downtown Asheville.
Pottery for us is a way of life. A lifestyle we cherish greatly. We strive to make each final piece the best it can be. Taking great care and consideration to each material, process, tool and technique that we use. We give our all into our craft and in doing so some part of us goes into the work as well.
We make a series of lamps and other decorative items. All pieces are hand built with slabs, hand carved, and fired with ash glazes.
Whimsical ceramic fish that hang on the wall. Available at the Kress Emporium in Asheville, NC.
Founded in 2015 by Rachel S. Smith as a shared studio space for 5-6 potters in Weaverville. There is a gallery with a mixture of functional and decorative pottery by the studio potters. Bowls, mugs, plates, bells, spoon rests, trays, vases, and much more.
I make wood-fired functional pottery for home use as well as sculptural and figurative candleholders.
Handmade in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Specializing in one-of-a-kind decorative vases and lamps. The glazing process is painterly, detailed, delicate, and time consuming. The work is done one piece at a time and multi-fired.
