Charlie Tefft's Wren pitcher
Just recently, Bruce and I were talking with our friend Charlie Tefft at the Potters Conference in Asheboro and thought that we could let our blog readers know about their upcoming Spring Potters Festival. Charlie sent me a sampling of the potters' work that will be showing there.
The 11th Annual Triad Spring Pottery Festival will be held this upcoming weekend on Sunday, April 5th, from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm at the Greensboro Farmer's Market. There will be 70 potters exhibiting their work with a variety of styles to offer the public. I was not able to get a full list of potters that will be showing, so you will just have to make a trip to meet and speak with them. The admission is free.

On a side note: Greensboro potter Molly Lithgo of Earthworks will be showing her pottery during the month of July at our local Randolph County's Art Guild/Moring Arts Center in Asheboro. Asheboro is a short drive from where Bruce, Ed, Gloria, and I call home--Seagrove. Due to Asheboro's plentiful accommodations and proximity to Seagrove, this is where many of the out of town visitors stay, when traveling to the Seagrove Potteries. Asheboro is also home to the North Carolina Zoo. Just down the road from the Moring Art's Center where Molly will be showing her pottery, is the Randolph County's Tourism Development. They work hard to promote our area, and to spread the word about the wonderful places that visitors can see in our comunity, which includes--the Seagrove Potters.
