Did you know that Northeast Georgia has a pottery tradition? More than 100 years ago, families such as the Meaders family of White County were making pottery as a trade; midcentury, Arie Meaders began decorating the jugs that her husband, Cheever, made. Occasionally she decorated them with faces. Their son, Lanier, kept that tradition alive, eventually putting Georgia pottery on the arts map. The three-year-old Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia in Sautee Nacoochee displays the Meaders’ amazing work through August 2010 in “The L.Q. Meaders Family Pottery Tradition,” which includes many rarely viewed, family-owned pieces. Elsewhere in the Folk Pottery Museum, look for functional and decorative pottery pieces by Northeast Georgia artists, videos, painting, photography and a spectacular view of the Appalachian foothills from tall glass windows. The pottery museum is part of the Sautee Nacoochee Center, where, among other arts displays and historical artifacts, a newly restored slave cabin is on show (viewings by appointment only).
