Pictures from the show

This pottery is made by LT Hoisington, A wonderful potter in Greensboro, NC. He went to UNC-G for his masters in art and now teaches at City Arts in Greensboro. If you can take a class by him he is an exceptional teacher. And it goes without saying his work is amazing.


























This next potter is Charlie Teft. He teaches ceramics at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. I don't know his background but he is also an amazing potter. I love his birds and rabbits and his soft subtle glazes.


















And here is my crazy booth. I need to find a way that it is not so jumbled looking.
I am working on my set up. Any suggestions are welcomed with appreciation.

Fantastic show! I suppose it depends on taste, but I prefer the second person's work to the first, and the third persons work is my favourite! :)

Gorgeous pottery.... I particularly love the birds.

For some reason I cant get the photo of your stand to come up. Would have loved to see it. Maybe I will come back later and it will appear.

Hey Jacky,

Leanne, your work looks so stunning and the way you have set it up with the acid green and turquoise highlights is perfect. That bowl/plate, When the sky grew black, really appeals to me.

Hey Robyn,
thanks so much!
I love adding color to the stark black and white and have been playing with the idea of dying the table cloths red or bright Indian pink. What do you think of that idea?

The piece you noticed is a plate about the bird Queen. Me and Queen Crafty have been writing stories together though I suspect hers might be better than mine.
