Clay Talks! with Pam Owens
February 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Please join us for a slide presentation at the North Carolina Pottery Center on February 2nd by Pamela Lorette Owens of Jugtown Pottery.
Pam will discuss one of the North Carolina Pottery Center’s current exhibitions, “North Carolina’s Traditional Women Potters,” which she curated. “North Carolina’s Traditional Women Potters” is on exhibit through Saturday, February 11th. The exhibition is the culmination of a study and lecture presented by Pam at the Catawba Valley Pottery & Antiques Festival, in Hickory, NC, in 2015. The twentieth century saw the emergence of women potters from the lineage of European settlers, and while Native American women had been making pottery here for thousands of years, their names and work were definitively recorded through writing and images only as the century progressed. This exhibition is an examination of North Carolina women who were established potters by 1975 and who came from or chose to work and learn through a traditional approach. The focus is on women who made and/or decorated pots, but all of the women who worked daily in potteries were integral to the process.
A potluck at 6 pm will begin the evening’s events, followed by the slide talk at 7 pm. Come out for a great night of food and community! This presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Pottery Center at 336-873-8430.
Location: The NCPC Educational Building located behind the NC Pottery Center at 233 East Avenue, Seagrove, 27341.
