Terance Painter makes a spectacular range of functional high-fired pottery as well as a series of bas-relief landscape tiles and vessels. Drawing on fine art training in painting and printmaking, he infuses his work with swirled colors and embossed textures. The experience of a vessel forming beneath your finger tips from a useless lump remains extraordinary and amazing. The Different Drummer Pottery, is in an old log cabin located on US Hwy 19 (Soco Rd) in the middle of Maggie Valley, just a few minutes from I-40 exit 20. Painter's work area is open for guests to come in and watch. Come on in and find out more about me.
