Exploring the Art of Collaborations

The Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia present its latest featured exhibition, Collaborations. Opened on May 16, 2024, this captivating exhibit celebrates the rich tradition of collaboration within the folk pottery community.

For generations, folk potters have thrived on the bonds of kinship and camaraderie, with familial ties serving as the cornerstone of many traditional potteries. Collaborations pays homage to this enduring legacy by spotlighting pottery pieces that bear the collective imprint of more than one maker.

From the blending of skills to create unique pieces, to the crafting of commemorative works, and the passing down of techniques from elder potters to the new generation, each piece on display narrates a story of shared creativity and craftsmanship. Parents, husbands, wives, siblings, cousins, and neighbors – their collective efforts breathed life into the clay, resulting in works of art that transcend individual boundaries.

Emily DeFoor, Director of the Folk Pottery Museum says, "This exhibition not only showcases the beauty and diversity of folk pottery but also celebrates the spirit of collaboration that has defined this vibrant community for generations. It's a testament to the power of working together."

Collaborations is a fascinating journey into the heart and soul of folk pottery, offering visitors a unique opportunity to witness the magic that unfolds when potters come together in harmony. 

An Opening Reception will be held on Friday, May 24 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The event is free and open to all. Guests will enjoy light refreshments, viewing the exhibit, and an interview with some of the potters represented in the exhibit.
