Crocker Pottery celebrates 30 years with kiln opening
Placeholder Image

Approximately 200 pieces of decorated and utilitarian ware will be fresh out of the kiln to celebrate 30 years of the Crocker Pottery in Lula.

Pottery from Lanier Meaders, the most famous folk potter, will be for sale along with new and old North Georgia and Southern pieces. Meaders can be credited with single-handedly keeping Southern folk pottery from dying with his distinct style and sculptural creativity. These qualities are evidenced in his one-of-a kind face jugs, without which no Southern folk pottery collection is complete.

More than 300 pieces of historical North Georgia folk pottery will be on exhibit.

Visitors may check out the exhibit or tour one of the last old-time traditional pottery shops in America.

The celebration is scheduled for 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4, at 6361 W. County Line Road, in Lula. Admission is free.

For more information, call 770-869-3160 or email folkpots@bellsouth.net.
