DirtWorks pottery is the home pottery of Dan Triece. He is ably assisted by Nelda French , Jared Zehmer, Nikki Albright , and Trenessa Dammann. At DirtWorks we produce an assortment of functional pots in several colors and glaze combinations, as well as the copper luster Raku artforms we are known for. Shades of teal, cranberry, sky blue, deep midnight blue, sage green, and age-old celadon green sparkle in our sunlit showroom.
You can always see someone at work through the workroom window at our showroom /gallery. In addition to our own work we proudly show the work of other N.C. potters who are our former students, teachers, and long time friends. There is always something new and different as we and others progress in our ceramic journey. During most fall and spring Saturdays there is the distinct possibility of a Raku firing in process. The kids love seeing a red-hot pot at 2100 degrees drawn from the kiln.
We are a shop/gallery with personality. Dogs romp outside (or in) and flowers abound. The cat roams among the pots or sleeps in a grand bowl, conversations can even be hear between generations in the backroom..With so many styles of pots and a diverse group of people, DirtWorks makes for an experience that many have a yearly tradition of repeating. Now in our 18th year, we count our many customers who have become friends as our biggest blessing. Come talk to us about our pots and friends who make pots.
