The Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia proudly presents Clint Alderman: A Modern Folk Potter,  its latest featured exhibition. The exhibit will be on display until May 1, 2023.

Visitors can learn about the evolution of a young artist who practices traditional folk pottery methods. Alderman became interested in pottery after moving to north Georgia at the age of 13. He has worked closely with local folk potters including Edwin Meaders, C.J. Meaders, and Michael Crocker.

The 39-year-old artist uses a wood-fired tunnel kiln, mixes his own glazes, and digs his clay from the Mossy Creek area of White County Georgia. The exhibit features a diverse selection of works as well as historical photographs from the potter himself.  Ring jugs, a “Paul Revere” jar, a snake jug, and roosters are some of the pieces on display for this 6-month exhibit. 

“What especially impressed me about Clint is that, despite his youth, his forms, glazes, and equipment harked back to that older tradition,” says Dr. John Burrison, curator of the museum and lifetime trustee. “Like other traditional potters I’ve known who’ve withstood the test of time, his work has undergone refinement as his reputation has grown, but still very much belongs to the White County tradition.”
