  • The Future of Traditional Pottery with Garth Clark

    October 20, 2012 - 2-4pm | UNC Asheville's Highsmith Union, Rooms 223-224

    Garth Clark will participate in a panel discussion moderated by Andrew Glasgow (former executive director of the American Craft Council). Other panelists will include Mark del Vecchio (writer and gallerist), Mark Hewitt (potter), Matt Jones (potter), and Jean Mclaughlin (executive director of the Penland School of Craft). This event hosted by UNC Asheville and the Center for Craft Creativity & Design is free and open to the public.  

    Clark is considered by many to be one of the great contemporary critics and writers in the field of ceramics.  South African by birth, he has lived in the US since the mid nineteen-seventies.  He ran galleries in LA and NYC with his partner Mark del Vecchio for thirty years.  He has been a prolific writer and advocate of ceramics in all its forms, and has lectured all over the world.  

    Topics for Discussion:

    •           Recap of previous two events in Charlotte and Raleigh

    •           Education as it relates to makers moving to the region; educational opportunities here and elsewhere

    •           Philosophy of the craft of ceramics; what is special about ceramic traditions in WNC

    •           Current market issues in our region

    From Matt Jones’ blog:

    “The following events have been the result of a blog I started a year ago challenging Garth Clark’s views presented in his provocative address of 2008 titled “How Art Envy Killed the Craft Movement: An Autopsy in Two Parts.”  My primary point of course has been that at least in the state of NC, the craft movement still lives perhaps even thrives, particularly in the field of ceramics.  Garth will visit to learn more about our state’s ceramic heritage and inform us about his view as a critic looking at the challenges that potters and ceramic artists face in the twenty-first century.  These programs will be lively and informative for all who work in clay or appreciate and collect pottery and ceramic art. “

    Other Events in the Series:

    October 16th at the Mint Museum in Charlotte 
    10:00 AM-4:00 PM 
    Garth will deliver the keynote lecture in a symposium called “Traditional Pottery: Back to the Future,” presented by the Delhom Service League at the Mint Museum’s Randolph Road location. After Garth’s lecture there will be ample time for audience participation. The keynote address will be preceded by shorter presentations by Matt Jones, Mark Hewitt and Charlotte Brown Wainwright. 

    October 18th at the Gregg Museum in Raleigh
    6:00-8:00PM
    Garth will deliver a lecture on the subject of traditional pottery, its present and future, and host questions from the audience. This event will be free of charge and held at the Gregg Museum at NC State University, located at 2610 Cates Ave, 2nd floor Talley Student Center.
