More Catawba Pottery Show (chapter 2)

I enjoyed following my eyes around the Convention Center in Hickory.  It wasn't until the next day that my lower back said I'd been walking on that concrete floor for a couple of hours.  But it was certainly worth the hour's drive over to Hickory from Black Mountain, NC.

I immediately thought "Rookwood potters" with the tree designs reminiscent of the Art Neuvo era.

I was impressed with the lifelike crows in the Jugtown Pottery display.

There were quite a few face jug pots throughout the show, maybve a 10th of the displays.  I wasn't really interested in face jugs, so won't be showing you any.

Cary Pottery, Cary, NC.

My friend introduced me to one of her favorite potteries, the Parmentiers.  This double booth featured some large well made pieces, all of which were glazed in subdued satin finishes.

This final picture is a design which I would like to try making.  A three sided planter, carved on exterior,  with a bird on each angle.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
