On April 16, I traveled to Macon, Georgia, along with Mitzi Davis to view Fired Works. The event ran from April 16-24, 2016. There were workshops, a preview party, and a very large pottery sale. I did not get to participate in any of the workshops, but we did spend an afternoon absorbed in viewing work and learning about the potters who were participating in the sale.
It was a revelation to see the work of artists I have admired and learn that they also live in Georgia. I have lived in Georgia for almost seven years now, but have not really acknowledged that I was living in Georgia. This trip has made me much more interested in learning about the other artists living in this state outside of our little Savannah community.
