POTTERY STUDIO TOUR ! TERRA FLOYD IS FOR POTTERY LOVERS !
Join us for our inagural Studio Tour! This year we will have 4 tour sites with 6 potters spread across Floyd County, VA.
Josh Manning, Wendy Wrenn Werstlein, Hona Knudsen, Andrea Denniston, Seth Guzovsky and Sarah McCarthy are each inspired by their unique histories and a shared passion for clay and the life of a studio potter.
Terra Floyd formed as a result of 6 young potters – 6 individuals connected through place and supporting one another in their shared goals of sustaining individual craft businesses and cultivating an appreciation of craft in the community – finding their way to Floyd. Each member offers a distinct color palette, form and touch to a pot. Experiencing their work in the 3nvironment of their home studios will add to the depth of meaning and beauty of their work. There will be light refreshments at each stop on the tour. What better way to enjoy local food on a crisp fall evening that in your new plate, bowl, and mug.
The six members of Terra Floyd infuse their work with a diverse range of history, education, and experiences. These influences and inspirations reveal themselves in the varied aesthetics of their work, each creating pots that are packed with rich surface treatments, a myriad of forms, and a sense that, when the day is done, the collective all belong around the kitchen table sharing stories, food and a passion for their shared craft.
