Contemporary southern folk art, NC wood-fired pottery, and custom picture framing
9th Annual Face Jug Show opens Online April 6!
Face Jugs have a special place in our hearts here in North Carolina, South Carolina and the mountains of Georgia. So many traditions are fading with the fast moving times, but the Face Jug has actually gained traction over the last couple of decades. The form is so iconic, AND allows for a myriad of interpretations, diversions & personalities to be expressed….WE LOVE THEM! While humans have always loved our countenances, the grotesque faces were purposeful: to scare the children away from drinking the Moonshine that has been traditionally stored within. This years Face Jug Show features 10 outstanding contemporary potters, each with a unique way of adding to the genre of the MoonShine Jug. Over 120 pieces have been carefully selected & beginning April 6th at 11am will be visible on this page: http://www.amerifolk.com/artists/9th-annual-face-jug-show/.
