The very first time I touched clay on the potter's wheel was in a workshop Sid Luck was giving and I haven't looked back since that day! This is one of his face jugs on display at The Ackland Museum in Chapel Hill and part of the show there, Tradition In Clay.
I went to see the show today with my pottery pals Charlotte, Kristen and Amy. If you are near Chapel Hill and haven't seen the show yet, it is worth the trip if you love the old Seagrove and Catawba pots as much as I do. It's up until March so there is still time.
Mark Hewitt and Daniel Johnston have a pretty prominent spot in the show and have beautiful examples of their work on display.
I took a lot of pictures but it is so hard to photograph pottery under plexiglass with museum lighting so the pictures pretty much suck. These were the best I got, so if you want to see more, come on over to Chapel Hill and I will buy you a beer. The Ackland is next to my favorite place ever, Top of the Hill. Oh the beer they have..... almost better than the pottery, well, not really but close!
