Potters of the Roan Exhibition

Roan Mountain is one of the highest and most beautiful portions of the Appalachian Mountains in western North Carolina. It is also home to Potters of the Roan, a guild of professional potters working in that area.
On Saturday, my stepmother and I went to an exhibition of their beautiful work. I'd love to be a potter with a studio in the mountains...at least in the summertime. :)
Beautiful art. Love your collage.

@seattle Thanks, Constance. It seems my motto this week has been: When there's too many photos to select just one - make a collage. :)

Gorgeous collage. I go to ceramic classes and i just love it, I'm not very good, but i can honestly say, playing with clay is the most destressing couple of hours in my week. I wish i was good enough to do it for a living, a studio in the mountains sounds like heaven! :) Nice captures Peggy.

Nice collage and works of art. What state is Roan Mountain located?

@cirasj Thanks, Joe. It's in the western mountains of North Carolina. Think I'll edit my commentary and input that info.

This is gorgeous. I can imagine you potting away in the mountains, Peggy. Some of this work here is just splendid; you must have had a heavenly time.

@fluffy So cool that you take clay classes, Fiona! I thought it was supposed to be so relaxing :) Would love to see you post a photo of one of your pieces sometime!

@girlie Thanks, Robin. I had a delightful weekend. In my next life, I'm going to give serious consideration to becoming a professional potter! :)

@isisweiss Thanks, Isis! I love collages when there's so much to share...that way I don't have to decide what to cut. :)

Peggy. . . as so many of your followers are saying, the Roan Pottery collage is excellently and beautifully done. Of course, I have a very special inclination to say that your stepmother's desire to take you there was also instrumental.
