Building Upon: Exchange of Ideas, Culture, Experience

Blue Hen Pottery presents an opportunity to meet Ceramic artists from Tallinn, Estonia; Pepin, WI and Greenville NC at North Carolina Pottery Center.

What do they all have in common? They are threaded together by the history of exchange that emerges from working with common material, clay. 

Many years ago, Richard Spiller, a former professor of East Carolina University ventured out into the unknown of the Baltic region (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania), Saint Petersburg and Finland. What he found there and how the history unfolded, will be unravelled in his slide presentation.

Some of the friends he made while in Estonia: Urmas Puhkan, The Head of the Ceramics Department and Ingrid Allik, a Professors of Ceramics at the Estonian Academy of Art will sneak us a peek into the academic art education in Estonia and introduce us to their individual work.

The youngest generation of the growing international clay family, the Students of East Carolina University and Estonian Academy of Art will be sharing with us their freshest ideas.

Please welcome these artists to the Seagrove community and join us for this exciting event - a Pot Luck Presentation Night at NCPC Educational Building.
