Pottery of the U.S. South : A Living Tradition
Opening Friday October 24, 2014
In the Cotsen Gallery
Pottery of the U.S. South: A Living Tradition presents traditional stoneware from North Carolina and northern Georgia—current works characterized by earthy local clays and surprising effects of wood firing. Rooted in British and German ceramic traditions and once crucial to Southern agrarian life, Southern pottery today remains vital, a distinctive art form through which potters actively engage with their region in ways both old and new. As museum visitors explore these ways, they are invited to consider for themselves the dynamics of a living tradition.
