2016 Nellie Allen Smith Pottery Competition

Loblolly Tea #1 by Elizabeth Keller

Loblolly Tea #1 by Elizabeth Keller

Sponsored by Grants from the

Arts Council of Fayetteville and Cumberland County 

Cape Fear Studios has been holding the Nellie Allen Smith Pottery Competition for 20 years.  Our goal was to give clay artists at first, locally and now nationally an opportunity to compete with their peers. We have been fortunate to have great community support and have been able to invite many accomplished potters to be our judge.  Cape Fear Studios is pleased to have potter Simon Leach as our juror for the 2016th Nellie Allen Smith Pottery Competition.  The following statement is an excerpt from his website, www.simonleachpottery.com. 

“Look to combine beauty with function in a pot” —Bernard Leach

Growing up surrounded by a family of potters, I draw on those early influences: the work of my Father, (David Leach), and Grandfather, (Bernard Leach), Japanese and Korean art. I have assimilated my surroundings; therefore my work has become a natural expression of what is personal to me. I find the ongoing challenge of discovering my own visual language and voice as a potter both exciting and rewarding. 
It is a lifetime journey.  — SL

OPENING RECEPTION: October 28, 2016 from 6 until 8 pm
