Clay: North Carolina

April 23-28, 2014

North Carolina is fertile ground for pottery making and has been for over 200 years. Please join Curator of Ceramics Peter Held for a fun-filled exploration of the state’s remarkable historical and contemporary pottery and craft enclaves: Jugtown/Seagrove, Pittsboro, Hickory, and some very scenic points in between. Along the way, we will meet accomplished artists, passionate collectors of craft and folk art; and distinguished museum directors and curators who now carry the mantle of North Carolina’s rich and renowned clay heritage.

Ceramics Research Center

Starting in 1967, the ASU Art Museum consciously undertook the building of a contemporary studio ceramics collection, one of the few fine art museums to do so at a time when craft-based media was relegated as a decorative or minor art form. From its inception, the collection was displayed in open storage. This concept allows year-round access to a majority of our permanent collection, providing students, scholars and the general public an opportunity to view important works.
