Ellington Pottery

I live and make pottery in the community of Vale, located in the Catawba Valley region of North Carolina.  Since the early 19th century, this area has been host to a tradition of using local clay to make stoneware pottery coated with a fluid ash glaze of Chinese origin.  The glaze is locally known as the Alkaline glaze.  The pots are fired to high temperature in a large wood burning groundhog kiln.
