About this experience

We are excited to have presentors, Michael Hunt and Naomi Dalglish, here to share their process during this demonstration based workshop.


Michael Hunt and Naomi Dalglish collaborate in making wood-fired pottery.  They combine coarse local clays, white slips and ash glazes to make the deeply layered surfaces for which they are known.  Their studio “Bandana Pottery” is named for the small community where they live outside of Bakersville, North Carolina.


"We make our pots using primarily coarse, impure local materials.  Our pots are thrown on a slow turning Korean-style kick wheel, and the large jars are made using a traditional Korean paddle and anvil technique.  We then fire the pots in a large, Thai-shaped wood kiln.  Through this collaboration with powerful materials and processes, we hope to create an environment in which pots can be born with a beauty beyond what is possible with our own hands.  Beginning with the geologic processes that form the coarse red clay, passing through our hands and kiln, the life of these pots is continued through years of daily use."  - Michael Hunt and Naomi Dalglish


We welcome you to join us and the artists for a Community Dinner on Saturday, April 15, 6:00pm at Fox Studio. Please Register for the Workshop and add the dinner option before checking out.
