Please join me, Gay Smith, Teresa Pietsch, Amy Sanders, and our guest artists, Matt Shiemann and Bill Griffith, over Labor Day weekend for a grand display of various clay bodies, firing temperatures, kiln atmospheres, and stellar styles on the campus of Penland School of Crafts. We will open the doors of Ridgeway Building from 10-6 on Saturday, August 31 and 10-5 on Sunday, September 1. Also, around Mitchell County within easy driving distance, two other exciting pottery events! Just down the road at Michael Kline Pottery, Cousins in Clay will include the work of Michael Kline, Bulldog Pottery, Kyle Carpenter Pottery, Dan Finnegan, and Becca Jane Studio. And in Spruce Pine, NC at the Toe River Arts Gallery, 10 Friends in Their Element will include the ceramic work of Susan Feagin, Speckled Dog Pottery, Lisa Joerling, and Andy Palmer, as well as artists in other media. Labor Day weekend hosts a pottery bonanza in the mountains of western NC!
