I endeavor to make handmade, wheel turned pottery and folk pottery in the "Catawba Valley Style".  Most of my pots are made using local clays and fired in a traditional wood fired kiln known as a "groundhog".  (Because it is very low and partially underground)

The Process


Cleaning the kiln of ashes from the last firing begins the process.


After loading the pots in the kiln, a small fire is started and built up to create an extremely hot controlled inferno.
