Bulldog Pottery in Seagrove, NC, Offers 5th Annual Cousins in Clay - June 1 - 2

Potters, Bruce Gholson and Samantha Henneke, will host their 5th Annual “Cousins in Clay” with special guest potters David MacDonald, a distinguished potter from Syracuse, NY, and Jack Troy, renowned potter from Huntingdon, PA, at their Seagrove, NC, pottery - Bulldog Pottery. Joining them will be their Carolina pottery “cousin”, Michael Kline from Bakersville, NC. The event takes place on June 1 & 2, 2013.

David MacDonald, a Syracuse University professor emeritus, takes the “power of pattern” on his pottery to the highest level. Jack Troy, a Juniata College professor emeritus, is a ceramics author, teacher, and wood-firing poet. Michael Kline is known for his lyrical floral brush imagery that gracefully wraps around his wood-fired traditional pottery forms. Bruce and Samantha of Bulldog Pottery specialize in iridescent crystalline glazes and imagery that reflect their interests in the natural world. During the two day event meet the potters, ask questions, and add to your pottery collection or begin one. “Cousins in Clay” is a pottery kinship based on a shared appreciation for the pursuit of excellence within the diverse language of clay.
