Miss Delhom Stories and the English Potteries


Please join us for a conversation on English potteries led by Dr. Alfred Ward, Winthrop University Professor Emeritus of Art and Design.

Presented by the Delhom Service League.

More information to come.

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.
