The Evolution of Cherokee Pottery & Craft

February 21, 2017 @ 5:00 AM


When most people look at a lump of clay or a piece of walnut, they see just that—a simple, unmoving object. Joel Queen, though, looks at such raw material and sees something waiting to be turned into a long-lasting thing of beauty.
Please join us for a conversation with Joel Queen about what it is to be a Cherokee potter.

Presented by the Delhom Service League.

The Delhom Service League is the ceramics affiliate of The Mint Museum. It was organized in 1972 by Mellanay Delhom, who came to the Mint with her historical collection in 1967. Our mission is to create and nurture interest in ceramics, from ancient to contemporary. Multiple programs include talks by curators and other experts in the field of ceramics, and visits to museums and private collections, and focused ceramic studies. The annual Potters Market Invitational (coming September 10, 2016), featuring outstanding potters from across North Carolina, showcases the depth and breadth of ceramics in The Pottery State. Funds raised by this fall festival help support acquisitions to The Mint’s ceramics collection. For inquiries and membership, please contact us at delhomserviceleague@gmail.com or call 704.337.2021.
