On Jan. 16, 2015, from 7-9pm, join us at the North Carolina Pottery Center in Seagrove, NC, for a slide lecture by Seagrove potter Daniel Johnston.

Johnston is a wood-firing potter who has been making pots for more than 20 years and is increasingly well known for his large jars. During his presentation, he will talk about his work and travels. His travels have taken him to England, where he worked with earthenware potter Clive Bowen, and Thailand to study large jar making techniques. Johnston also apprenticed with Mark Hewitt, and now continues to bring on apprentices at his Pottery in Seagrove. Johnston has also taught workshops around the country, including the Penland School of Craft, and was recently chosen as a McCandless Scholar at Eastern Michigan University.

Come on out and join us for a fun evening! A potluck at 7pm will begin the evening’s events, followed by Johnston’s talk at 8pm.

This ongoing lecture series is facilitated by Josh Floyd, the Artist-in-Residence at the Pottery Center. Location – NCPC Educational Building located behind the NCPC at 233 East Avenue, Seagrove, 27341.
