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.
