Local Clay Potters’ Showcase Their Talents

A few years ago a handful of ceramics artists decided to do something about that and formed the Local Clay Potter’s Guild.

South-central Indiana has a reputation for local art, from sculptors to painters and everything in-between. In some places, it seems you find a studio around every corner. But many of those artists find themselves isolated, hard at work inside their studios. A few years ago a handful of ceramics artists decided to do something about that and formed the Local Clay Potter’s Guild.

They started with a small group of only three and have blossomed unto an organization that celebrates the work of independent clay potters with over five years experience. An important distinction is also made in that each of the artists fire their own clay.

Artworks’ David Wood spoke with three of the current artists about the Local Clay Potters’ Guild and their upcoming holiday show.

David Wood

Originally from Leavenworth, Kansas, David Wood moved to Bloomington in 2005. He received his Bachelor of Music from Kansas State University, and his Master of Music from the University of North Texas. He studied ensemble direction at the Jacobs School of Music's Early Music Institute and joined WFIU in 2006 as an announcer. In 2008 he became WFIU's Music Director and also served as Art Bureau Chief from 2008-2013. David’s interests include Irish music and language (particularly traditional singing), music and religion, running, the outdoors, and, of course, classical music!
