Potter Fred Johnston made this vase using a new combination of local wild clays dug from around the Seagrove area . Each clay has its own character I Love discovering how to work with those characteristics allowing their raw beauty to shine!  Im so grateful to have been in Val Cushings Glaze Calculation and Raw materials class @Alfred University .Val knew how to teach and I was all about learning , today I really know how to play with Clay. Seagrove Is rich in raw materials , going out into nature and finding wild material is an Adventure for sure!
