The Mahler is proud to present a large scale exhibition, Large Pots, by renowned Seagrove potter, Daniel Johnston. Most of the materials that Daniel uses to make and glaze his pots he digs himself. The pots are fired in a large 850 cubic foot wood kiln. Daniel does not try to control the materials he uses, rather he tries to understand them. From digging the clay to firing the kiln he puts all his effort into creating pots that have a powerful presence. His pots are timeless but reflect the culture and times in which we live.
Daniel learned and honed his craft beginning in 1997 under the eye and hand of several national and international potters including nationally recognized NC potter, Mark Hewitt (1997-2001); British earthenware potter Clive Bowen, North Devon, England (1999 & 2010); and Mr. Sawein Silakhom, Phon Bok, Northeast Thailand (2003).
