Discover Fine Appalachian Craft from artists of the Southern Highland Craft Guild

Since 1930, craftspeople residing in the mountain regions from Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia have come together to create a network and market for mountain crafts. Today, Guild membership stands at nearly 900 makers selected by a jury for the high quality of design and craftsmanship.  You will find fine crafts made of clay, fiber, glass, leather, metal, mixed media, natural materials, paper, wood, and jewelry. The Southern Highlands continues to inspire and lead the craft revival movement.

Maker Statement:

Working with clay is very ‘process oriented’ – this is the attraction. I work primarily from wheel-thrown components. I am only half teasing when I say that the clay keeps a person ‘centered’. Beyond the throwing – mesmerizing & meditative as that can be – there is the quality of mark making and creation of form. Working with clay for over 30 years, I have a decided interest in the quest for problem solving when making more complex forms or pieces. What fun to test one’s skills against this ornery & willful material.
