Greetings,
Excitement abounds here at Bulldog Pottery. We are surrounded by clay and glazes and filling our kiln with Moka glazed pottery for the upcoming “Cousins in Clay” pottery weekend. All of us at Bulldog Pottery are looking forward to the two day event featuring Jack Troy, Peter Lenzo, and Michael Kline.

“COUSINS IN CLAY” Memorial Day Weekend
May 28 Saturday 9-4
May 29 Sunday 10-4 Michael Kline’s Brushwork Demonstration
Saturday 2:00-3:00
Sunday 1:30-2:30

Jack Troy just returned from Australia as a presenter on a panel at the Australian Wood-firing Conference. He is a renowned potter from Pennsylvania, ceramics author, teacher, and poet.
Creative energy is clearly unlimited for Pennsylvanian potter Jack Troy, who weaves his productive life around his passion for ceramics. He has taught over 185 workshops, written 2 books about clay, a book of original poems, published over 60 articles and book reviews, and won awards, all while producing a constant stream of pottery in his Pennsylvania studio. Peter Lenzo from Columbia, SC reexamines the southern pottery face jug tradition, by creating his autobiographical head sculptures. We think you will enjoy these incredibly intricate and quirky sculptural interpretations of this Southern regional art form. Michael Kline from Bakersville, NC is known for his floral brush imagery that gracefully wraps around his wood-fired pottery forms. Michael is our perennial co-conspirator with Gholson-Henneke’s annual “Cousins in Clay” event. Look for a Mountain Cousins event in the near future. Bruce and Samantha of Bulldog Pottery specialize in iridescent crystalline glazes and imagery that reflect their interests in the natural world.
