Nearly 45 master potters from across 17 states gathered in downtown Dillsboro on Saturday for the seventh annual Western North Carolina Pottery Festival. The one-day event hosted an array of clay artists who travelled from as far away as Texas, New Jersey, Wisconsin, and Nebraska to demonstrate a variety of techniques and who shared their knowledge through hands-on demonstrations, including throwing, wood-firing and horsehair firing, and Raku demonstrations.
