2012 Madison County Potter’s Market Takes Place in Marshall, NC – April 28, 2012

April 9, 2012

The 2012 Madison County Potter’s Market takes place on Saturday, Apr. 28, 2012, from 9am-5pm at Marshall High Studios in downtown Marshall, NC.

Work by Alex Matisse

The event will showcase the work of the 10 full time members of the Potters of Madison County and their 10 invited guest potters.

In the last decade, the quiet mountain towns and townships of Madison County have attracted an ever growing community of artists and craftspeople. Madison County’s rich rural and agricultural history and its inhabitants’ collective respect for tradition and craft make a natural setting for the production of handmade functional and sculptural ceramics. The Potters of Madison County was created in order to unite and acknowledge the skilled and diverse group of men and women currently creating work in an area not previously recognized as a stronghold for pottery in its own right.

Works by Joy Tanner

Participating artists include: Jim & Shirl Parmentier, Jules & Tyrone Larson, Tom Clarkson, Kyle Carpenter, Mary Kay Botkins, Barry Rhodes, Jane Peiser, Joy Tanner, Ronan Kyle Peterson, Tom Turner, Mike Ball, Emily Reason, Mary Mikkelsen & Henry Pope, Becca Floyd, Billy Brown, Alex Matisse, Rob Pulleyn, and Josh Copus.
