The 25th North Carolina Potter's Conference was last weekend. In addition to demonstrations by Cynthia Bringle, Jack Troy, and John Glick, new emerging artists were invited to do demonstrations.
Here are three artists that are definitely on their way to "greatness".
Martha Grover makes delicate porcelain pitchers, baskets, jars, etc. that appear to be dancing like a ballerina.
Ronan Kyle Peterson makes colorful, terracotta pieces that may have a surprise inside or on the bottom.
Jake Johnson makes pod-like forms that are wood fired or reduction fired with shino glazes. They are very light weight, and tactile to handle.
All three artists sell their pottery on Etsy ..... now is the time to collect!
