Cousins in Clay Memorial Day Weekend in Seagrove


Memorial Day Weekend
May 28 Saturday 9-4
May 29 Sunday 10-4

Michael Kline's Brushwork Demonstration
Saturday 2:00-3:00
Sunday 1:30-2:30

Jack Troy just returned from Australia as a presenter on a panel at the Australian Wood-firing Conference. He is a renowned potter from Pennsylvania, ceramics author, teacher, and poet. Creative energy is clearly unlimited for Pennsylvanian potter Jack Troy, who weaves his productive life around his passion for ceramics. He has taught over 185 workshops, written 2 books about clay, a book of original poems, published over 60 articles and book reviews, and won awards, all while producing a constant stream of pottery in his Pennsylvania studio.

Peter Lenzo from Columbia, SC reexamines the southern pottery face jug tradition, by creating his autobiographical head sculptures. We think you will enjoy these incredibly intricate and quirky sculptural interpretations of this Southern regional art form.

Michael Kline from Bakersville, NC is known for his floral brush imagery that gracefully wraps around his wood-fired pottery forms. Sometimes his pots are covered with a honey amber color glaze that is as appetizing as maple syrup.

Bruce Gholson and Samantha Henneke have created a collaborative environment at their Bulldog Pottery studio that provides them the support to express their independent voices, more than they would be able to achieve individually. Their art pottery has become known for an eclectic mix of form, imagery, texture, pattern, and graceful design all integrated by their rich and distinctive glazes

Osmosis at Tom Grey Pottery May 28 & 29

May 28 and 29, 2011

a subtle or gradual absorption or mingling

That is what happens when we hang out with our friends -- we teach each other and learn from each other. We rub off on each other and absorb what each other has to offer. That's what this show is all about -- people who have influenced me, pottery-wise and otherwise, and maybe a few for whom I've had an influence. Oh yeah, plus the shiitake mushroom folks :-)

May 28-29 we will all be assembling here at Tom Gray Pottery to sell some pots, sculptures and shiitake mushrooms, and you're invited.
