 “The Men Won’t Tell Us Anything”: Women of Georgia Folk Pottery (Born 1890 – 1940s) is a look at how women in Folk Pottery moved from decorating pieces of pottery to throwing their own jugs, chickens and churns.

The featured exhibit, which opened in January 2021 and runs until July 2021, highlights the work of Arie Meaders, Grace Nell Hewell, Lin Craven and Marie Rogers. 

This installation is part of a series that will focus on the evolution of women in folk pottery and tell their stories about family, life and folk pottery.

An interview with pottery advocate Jeanie Daves of Clarkesville is available on the Folk Pottery Museum website, www.folkpotterymuseum.com. In the interview, Jeanie shares her experiences with Folk Potters and pottery with museum director Anna Calliham. (https://youtu.be/oa05H59dz7A)
