Celebration of Seagrove Pottters: Gala Collaboratives

The above tile, by Samantha, will be part of a tile grouping by ten women potters.

We have joined fellow potters on a few collaborative pieces for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters.

Lost Marbles : local jazz band

Collaborative works will be auctioned off Friday evening on November 21. The Celebration's Gala takes place from 6:30-9:00. Tickets are $35.00, with festivities planned for the evening. There will be a local jazz band, Lost Marbles entertaining the guests, food, and wine. Gala attendees will have first choice on pottery and participate in the collaborative auction. This ticket also covers you to attend the next two days of the Celebration.

Regular admission for Saturday and Sunday's Celebration is $5.00.

Collaborative artwork for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters

The tile collaboration by ten women symbolizes: New Growth, Re awakenings, and New Beginnings, with each tile representing the artist's interpretations of this new beginning and new change, the Celebration of Seagrove Potters.

Susan Smith : Smith Pottery
Pam Owens : Jugtown Pottery
Alexa Modderno : Seagrove Stoneware

Below Bruce holds a platter that was thrown by Michael Mahan : From the Ground up Pottery. Bruce drew three of his fossil fish in the center. This platter fired out beautifully and the finished piece can be seen on Michael's blog.

Chris Luther of Chris Luther Pottery is holding the finished collaborative large bottle. Chris threw and fired this piece, and Bruce drew one of his two headed fossil serpents wrapping around the form and applied the glaze.
