Hickory – The public is invited to a show and sale of pottery at Full Circle Arts. The work of six local potters will be on display until Saturday, April 17.

Participants in the show include Virginia Hurley and Chad Soden who both specialize in the dramatic process of Raku firing, where an extremely hot pot is quickly taken from the kiln and put in a container of organic materials.Pottery Sale At Full Circle Arts

Varian Swieter concentrates on functional pieces that are practical and beautiful.. She is known for her “Get A Grip StonewareTM” (tumblers with divots to accommodate fingers and reduce slipping) along with other pieces made of high-fire stoneware and food-safe glazes

Much of Kelli Webber’s work features slab techniques with impressed designs, wall-hanging flower holders and “Christmas Village” buildings. Kelli is new to the area and brings a fresh vision of pottery.
