Mike Lalone is a potter living and creating in Murphy, North Carolina. He is the resident potter at the John C. Campbell Folk School, where he teaches his craft throughout the year, as well as an eager demonstrator at special events at our Guild's HQ, the Folk Art Center.
Mike's pottery is as functional as it is beautiful--each piece is intended to be used and enjoyed for years.
