活動內容

*If you don't see a date or time that works for you, please contact me and we can schedule a time that works for you!

North Carolina has a rich history of ceramics, mostly due to the abundance of clay in our soil. I am a professional potter who makes ceramics from the clay I dig in my own urban backyard.

In my backyard studio, guests will learn about how to dig and make pottery out of wild North Carolina clay. I will show them the steps of finding, processing, and drying the clay so that it is workable for making handmade pottery. Then we will use clay that has been processed and dried to make small hand built pottery vessels, like a dish, bowl or bud vase. I will guide them through each step, and once their pieces have dried I will fire them and ship the finished pieces to them. Not only will they have a piece of pottery made by their own hands but they will also have a piece of North Carolina earth that will last forever.

I have been making pottery for over a decade and am passionate about exploring the raw materials that make up clay and glaze. I use my backyard studio as a lab for testing clays that I dig around my area and also for developing glazes. I fire my pottery at a lower temperature and seek out local materials because the carbon footprint of making pottery can be surprisingly high and I want to do as much as I can to reduce it.

I preface this by saying that I am not remotely a ceramicist but, that didn’t matter in the least. The experience with Katie was wonderful! She explained everything as we went and was a very engaging hostess– the nearly two hours spent in her cozy backyard studio flew by and I could have spent all afternoon chatting with her and making pieces from the beautiful red clay. I would recommend this experience to anybody. Thank you again!

This was our first airbnb experience and we really enjoyed learning about pottery along with making some fun little things. Katie was a wonderful host who clarified all the questions we had and also taught us about how the clay is collected and a lot more.
