The quieter ones

Here are a few more pictures from the Greenhill show. I looked back over the postcard, (thanks Michele for the tip that the mentor/student relationship is on the postcard, duh!) and I realized that I missed a lot of photos. My apologies to the artists that I don't have pictures of here. Is's nothing personal I promise! There were so many people that night, some of the pedestals were hard to even get close to, people gathered around chatting and looking. Checking out the list on the postcard, I also realize there was work I didn't even see! So definitely another trip is needed to see it all.
These were some of my favorites and some of my favorite NC Potters:
 Samantha Henneke from Bulldog Pottery in Seagrove had this wall of bug tiles. Brilliant! She is my glaze hero! Can you imagine the time it took to make these?!

Glad you have enjoyed it. Too bad all that read my blog can't get to the show, but isn't it nice to have virtual reality sometimes :)

I really wish I could get to the show, your pictures help but seeing in person is even better. At least we have the pictures, thank you so much for taking and posting them.

That looks like a very interesting exhibition. There is a nice diversity of work in it. It's very interesting to see what work is being produced in America. Thanks.

thanks, Tracey! know who is the artist for the first piece with the black/white stripes? Of those, have always been drawn to Kline and Jones' pottery. Thanks for the pics. Sometimes the quieter ones are the best. Like yours.
